Entry Description

The value of motherhood and birth depends on the future of humanity. Maternity, beautiful, immortal, eternal is a patrimony to be protected. It is good to swap the features of the brush with those of the photographic medium, not to distort painting photography, but to another by painting and photography: is painting or maybe photography is also painting? Photography is a shift is art as a game. Pregnant women, courtesan, odalisque, nannie and twin, are portraits of women and not models. These photographs are the result of a particular role play, where I am the master and they interpret themselves, future mothers, naked or with costumes in past epoch environments. These portraits mirror the character of the girlfriends photographed, and not only: for example, the photo "nannie and twin", documented with fantasy, the reality, because the young woman named her caterina makes the nannie of twins and a little girl playing in that fireplace room because his grandfather architect was renovating the Castle of Albertis.
