Entry Description

The project develops the theme of Laughter: the most direct, easy and universal tool we own to transmit positive vibrations to the outside and transform our psychophysical mood into optimal well-being. Nowadays, scientific research have demonstrated the health benefits of laughter. It helps to get rid of negative energy, and it's also one of the most efficient means of communication between humans. Laughter therapy is a kind of treatment that show most of the powerful benefits of laughing. I organised a special session that mingled laughter therapy with the help of two instructors and photography, involving a mixed group of people from different countries. During the two hours workshop, the participants/models were given the chance to experience the immediate pleasure and benefits of laughter, its releasing power and its characteristic generation of happiness. https://vimeo.com/123312550 password: Exhibit-it “Crack up” is a series of guffaws: it shows moments of happiness and vulnerability induced by viral laughter.

About Photographer

I am an Italian artist that grew up in Africa in early age and now based in Barcelona. Being exposed to a multicultural milieu since my early childhood, the cultural and human diversity broadened my view on life and made me more receptive to the daily beauties that surrounded him. This sensitivity, and attention to my surroundings brought me to show an early interest in photography. Photography and digital manipulation are two incredible tools that allow me to express my concepts and ideas. On a personal level, they represent the most direct way to capture the dreamlike beauties of life that surround us, from nature to man made creations.
