“Write a poem of silence” is a metaphor expressed in photography with light and shadow. Silence is sometimes more deafening than words, a silence made into a poem of light, dedicated to the feminine, to the laceration of the soul, to that deafening void left by words that have never been spoken.
To those loves lived in the shadows and never declared, to those words never spoken that leave scars in the soul and bridge the dreams. My photographic series is made up of faces of women in the shadows, faces that take on masks or hide. This series wants to be an experiment a bridge between photography and graphics that reflects a lot my way of seeing photography today, as something that goes beyond the limit of pure means to embrace something different by combining a collage with words and drawings, by superimposing graphic and photographic elements, I wanted to express a Dadaist poem out of the simple and pure concept of photography, to embrace dreams, to express emotions in this way.
