Theia - A Lady is born
It was the summer 2019 when I met Tommaso, aka Lady Vivienne. I was looking for a new story that would allow me to affirm once again how important it is to protect the word "diversity", the meaning and the fight to affirm itself, to declare the own rights and independence. Biodiversity must be preserved in nature, otherwise everything is lost. We must to do it too, so the diversity no longer becomes a label but a confirmation. Not a word that divide but that create a unity. On his Instagram profile it says: “Lady Vivienne: the word describes a situation where the individual is sane but struggles against an illogical and insane bureaucracy or authority”. Why this title? A perfect storm is said to have created the perfect place. A planet called Theia is said to have created the moon when it collided with Earth. On a simple summer night, I told the story of a boy, that like Theia, crashed with society giving birth to Lady Vivienne. Theia - A Lady is born The idea was to represent Lady Vivienne in several location. Her home (room), in a club and in a third metaforical location (Luna Park). This one represents for me the place where "to do things you cannot do”. But most importantly, is a place full of lights like a starry sky, objects that spin like planets and where many characters wake up in the night. Where Theia is born.

OstiAngeles
Long-term project Dancing in the waves - lights and shadows. Ostia, a small Rome included in the X Municipality of the Capital. Ostia is known for the mafia and for the murder of Pasolini. A place that is only besieged in the summer. But behind all this, Ostia hides a pearl: surfing. In '80s /' 90s, the was very few surfers and used a string to the foot as a leash and wearing very heavy diving suits to enter the water, in any season of the year. So, we not just think about the beautiful days and the fantastic waves of the Oceanic coasts. From Ostia the surf is raw, it's cold but it also offers poetic and regenerating moments, if you know how to watch. With these pictures, with this project, I want to show the poetic part of surfing, where shadows and lights, characters and water move together creating a dance.
