Support & Technique: Series of digital photographs. Inkjet printed on Hahnemuhle cotton paper, mounted on 2 mm dibond and framed in bleached copperwood
White Lies is a series of photographs staged and shot in common, everyday settings, which, however, due to their strong aesthetic and chromatic impact, generate a kind of disorientation, which transforms familiar moments into something foreign to reality: everything seems too perfect to be real, everything seems too homologated to be recognizable. These are instants captured on the street, outdoors, or in public places, as if the author were a photojournalist of a world that has lost its human side.
The subjects, whose faces are concealed by the relentless entanglement of colored threads, become momentarily blind and, at the same time, no longer recognizable lose their identity. Unable to communicate, they become characters in a silent narrative and their gestures, stopped by the photographic shot, are reduced to aimless automatisms for an absent audience.
