This project aims to answer a question about my origins. Born in Italy by French and Italian parents, I was constantly moved and relocated in several countries since my childhood, growing uprooted and torn between different cultures.
Considering myself as a result of all these experienced cultures, I instinctively refuse to identify myself with just one specific land or country. Nevertheless, I deeply feel the necessity to understand where is home, the place that I will always carry in my heart through my ceaseless vagrancy.
To link my origins to a psychological and emotional place focusing on the representation of my family, I chose to make this series of portraits depicting (physically) my grand parents and (psychologically) our shared love sphere. It is the most intimate that I could think of.
