With my job there is no possibility of smart working so I had to build and invent a different normality from the previous one, exactly like many of us, keeping in contact with my friends and the outside world through a screen. In this way started a photographic project.
The project is titled “Quarantine Models” and features several models located in different countries of the world.
It is not a project that talks about fashion, but it is simply a documentary that testifies to their life in quarantine.
No guidelines have been set for having a job as genuine and real as possible. No requests were made on what to wear or photograph.
The shots are the result of the vision of each model, collected in a series of polaroids, each ones containing four self-portraits that represent them in different situations.
A different story to tell, a story that speaks of the reality of our days, of how we spend the days, their thoughts, their emotions and their desires.
Who wears a pair of white wings, a symbol of purity and light, in front of a balcony for her desire to escape and fly outside, free. Who, finally free to do what she like, dedicates herself to hes passions such as painting or reading. Who is dedicated to her family and can finally enjoy her baby. Others continue to make models even at home, to recreate a space of “normality”. And then home fitness for mind and body care, a necessary balance in the time of COVID-19.
It is a coordinated remote reportage, unpublished and unusual, in which ones each of us can recognize ourselves: from Italy, Spain, to the United States because, after all, it talks about all of us, about our history and our time. It is a kind of universal language, recognized and shared by all.
