Memorie del Mare
Photographer working in both new digital and traditional analogue techniques, I explore the relationship between nature, body, movement and identity through an experimental approach.
My concern is to re-imagine the human body and all my subjects, creating a suspended journey in a “sensible world”, where the senses dialog with the forms and where the stories and the “captured moments” leave space to a look on the invisible. In my work, all the subjects’ forms are subverted, everything is dismembered and recomposed together, in a continue research of their own identity, in an ongoing questioning of what are the ties bonding objectivity and personal vision.
Part of this research is the series “Memorie del Mare”, a project that investigates the concept of natural environment. Growing up in a small town surrounded by nature, I realized that most of the times what we consider a natural environment, it is actually, a place where the man presence is very strong, sometimes so strong to restrain and control the whole natural cycle. Photographing compositions on the edge between natural and artificial, using objects washed ashore on the beach from the sea tide, I wanted to create a sensation of unheimliche, challenging the observer asking how blurred is the line separating natural and unnatural.
