The inspiration for these portraits comes from a dark reality, feminicides occur in our society and especially mine at a troubling rising rate. Last year I realized that I had met two persons that presumably committed such a crime, how is this possible? Where is the value of our life? When being a woman is not going to be considered a crime? So many questions, and a genuine hope that will change in the future.
These portraits are about women and the way they express their personalities. We all have different characteristics, interests, ages, backgrounds; what we share is our femininity. In each portrait, I played with a concept, something odd, a bit ridiculous and maybe funny.
Each woman inspired me to create around her; they all are strong and assertive. But it the background there is a ghosting image, a depiction that marks the moment someone cuts the life of a person. This is an ongoing project, and my objective is to show women in a different light, as subjects of value and respect.
