Photo project. 2020-2021

Project description

In the recent context of isolation caused by the pandemic (2020-2021) I carried out an artistic project with a relational component: I realized ten “masks” with recycled cardboard from postal packages; then I visited ten people, asking them to wear the mask in their daily routine.
Here the mask is both the common theme of the project and a device for personal safety. Each photo has the name of the street where it was shooted (the name is handwritten on the photo).
