Cities do not frighten, no. They could never frighten us. It is the men and women who inhabit them who sow them with terrors. They plant their hell and water them and care for them and harvest them. I have seen beings who proudly show a dead child or raped girl, as if they were juicy trophies, trophies of their infamy. Cities are innocent creatures without life to which we always, we should always love and return.”
'The gown' is a photographic project that aims to talk about one of the most life-changing social and particular experiences of couples, in order to find out the reasons which drive people to attach their lives to someone else, as well as how difficult or satisfactory this decision is.
In this series, the dress would be the golden thread for the topic and it is the reason for my exploring people's stories.
