In the middle of May 2017 I put an ad on WOLOHO saying “I would take a photo of you, if you’d tell me why you need one. The best story wins!“.
I got 10 stories; about struggling with body issues, marking a point in time, a “life junction”, being lost in between worlds, fear of change, of getting old...
They were all women. All great stories. But what made me go and try to schedule a session with all of them, was the opportunity to play the role of witness in a process of what I understood as a basic need to be seen. Probably more than just curiosity, this is why i love doing portraits.
It took 5 months to coordinate all shooting dates and another 3 months to edit.
These are my personal picks --
