This series of diptychs entitled "Isolato" evokes the idea of seclusion and solitude. Each image brings together a female body and an object, a landscape or an animal. Each body is veiled, hidden, disappearing into the shadows or behind fabric, turned away from the viewer. The faces are never seen. Only a few elements hint that it’s a woman’s body. They appear on the ground or with their backs to the wall, anonymous, falling. A few bodies try to resist, to exist—but in vain. They are all withdrawing into themselves, voluntarily or involuntarily.
