Magic Real Life
Childhood seen through everyday life can be an alienating action for an adult’s eye. Memories are nuanced, uncertain and distant from reality.
It’s like suddenly losing your orientation and finding yourself in another, almost magical world, where you are balancing boundaries between reality and fantasy.
A tangible and at the same time dreamlike dimension in which it seems that everything is possible, as if it were transcending and even surpassing time.
And yet the representation is realistic, attentive and precise. Even apparently irrelevant details emerge and they acquire magical elements which, when scrolling through the images, become normal.
This balance between reality and fantasy is stopped and captured in the portraits of intimate environments, in the background of a small village in southern Italy, in the faces of little girls who grow up and discover the world, that which is still not theirs.
