There are obviously questions that we ask ourselves over time, and that of identity is one of them.
My mother, born in France in 1938 to a Neapolitan father and a French mother, was left “in the country” from an early age, under the care of a violent uncle but a loving aunt. She ran away when she was 16.
I imagined Napoli through her stories, her souvenirs. I had to photograph this fantasized city. In 2015 I travelled there with her. She had never been back.
