PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: The other part of me
This project talks about the hidden part of ourselves and about what we allow or not allow ourselves to be, show and reveal to the world.
This project come from some reflections on the dichotomy between good and evil and about dichotomy between realism and idealism.
The unseen part cannot be shared, demolishing the concept of the portrait that in this era of selfies has been understood as a means to show off.
When and where did The other part of me begin?
This project started in an old Italian villa in 2014. The ongoing series is composed of images taken in different places: Italy, Berlin, Slovenia. Explores what we allow or do not allow ourselves to be and what we’re willing to show and reveal to the world. In this series , we see figures of women merge into the cluttered textiles around them. I have constructed these scenes, as she states, “to reflect on the dichotomy between good and evil and realism and idealism.”
Where do you see this project going?
The project is still in-progress. It has been exhibited and published and also awarded an International Photography Award.
What helps you sustain your current creative practice?
Everything inspires me!
My works are triggered by different pulses: observation of reality, thoughts and memories.
I have no particular routines or habits.
I observe reality and look for beauty everyday because anything can inspire us and can be interesting.
What’s next for you?
Next is my present which leads me to realize many ideas.
