I believe in photography as a way to understand what is real. In this project I try to offer a thought and an image regarding the theme of childhood.
I developed two types of photographic experiments that help me interpret this stage of my life: I relate memories to dreams I had many years ago using a new pathway that takes me to the places of my childhood, fiction and history are constantly merged together and are reactivated.
Within the other photographs, the spectator will find a group of stagings representing children’s alter ego. It explores moments of self-absorption, a moment of access to the imaginary, a place where images are born and then die. I also intervene on the landscape creating a group of images that allow me to build a stream of thoughts on opposite elements: the natural landscape and the artificial act. I transform a natural space because I feel it is a way to make the world mine and a way encounter my personal place while living in it. In this sense these images exhibit a search for the abolition of that small hole between reality and fiction.
“There is Nothing Out There”creates multiple meanings regarding the relationship between the sensitive world and the imaginary, I use these two terms in order to merge them in images that will allow me to understand reality, dreams, memories and the sensitive world living in an only image that allows me to represent childhood.
