Summary: As soon as I moved from Italy to New York, I started to think about my notion of family, friendship and home. On the other hand, I also started to photograph strangers in transitory places and anonymous suburban settings. As the project developed, I placed notices on Craigslist seeking people who would agree to pose nude for me. I photographed them in the studio and I included elements of the environment to contextualize the space around the subjects, even if it was a more neutral setting. I also photographed nude strangers on the street. I then photographed friends and acquaintances, using the same procedure. Exploring these different possibilities added layers of meaning to my work, in terms of levels of connections between the subject, the environment and myself. I am interested in the ambivalent awareness of feeling comfortable and uncomfortable in a place at the same time. Through the search for this liminal feeling, my portraits become existential, perhaps even self-portraits. This work is self-reflective and wants to express a certain kind of detachment I am experiencing together with common feelings like loneliness, disappointment, alienation, conformism and the urge to connect with others.
