Medusa

PhotographerEtna Scorza
PrizeHonorable Mention
Entry Description

In the Medusa project the camera is hidden into a pair of glasses becoming invisible. Reality is not modified by the presence of the camera, making the camera and the photographed subject closer than they have ever been. This gives the possibility to show an image that couldn't be captured before because of the encumbing presence of the camera: a direct eye contact, unaware of being photographed. The look of a passer-by watching another passer-by. Technological evolution gives the possibility to do something that couldn't be done before, allowing art to say something that until now was unspeakable.
