  • Dark portraits

    This project was born by chance, after shooting a few close-ups. Only one light is playing with the subjects' faces, it reshapes their features and expressions, sometimes it transfigures them and makes them barely recognisable. Black looms over in the background, but light triumphs and enlightens details and hues the colours would have missed. Every wrinkle is a story, every glance is a life, rich in shades, but told in black and white.


    Nasce per caso, dopo aver scattato alcuni primi piani. È la luce soltanto a giocare con i volti dei protagonisti, ridisegnandone i lineamenti e le espressioni, a volte trasfigurandoli e rendendoli quasi irriconoscibili. Il nero incombe sullo sfondo, ma la luce trionfa illuminando dettagli e sfumature che il colore perderebbe. Ogni ruga una storia e ogni sguardo una vita, ricche di sfumature, ma raccontate in bianco e nero.
