Daughters and mothers
The relationship between mother and daughter is the focus of the narrative of this project articulated in the very complex period that is adolescence. I purposely chose to tell about this moment only through the female vision. I wanted to pose those I photographed, creating a kind of fiction. I asked their participation to recreate certain moments related to their relationship, trying to catch some looks, some poses, some feelings. The ultimate idea is to collect experiences and portraits that tell something about the relationship between a daughter and her mother.
The love of the others
The project wants to collect the experience of the couple through portraits of young, adult and old couples and aims to collect the stories of love as understood by all cultures, conventional love and unconventional love. The idea is to crreate an atlas of human love
"Girls" is a project that has its focus on the age of adolescence, a peculiar problematic period exist due to the changes in the body and psyche. Adolescence is a period of growth in which relationships with aduts and peers change. Its is a phase of search for identity and crisis of childhood certainties. I was interested to reflect on the period of puberty as a moment of transitions which the subject has difficult task of conquering their own dimension and become adults. The exclusively female portraits were taken inside the rooms of the girls so as to enter will into an intimate daily space
