My(m)other



“My (m)other” is a project born from a personal thought on the internal relations of families. Mine, as many other hide uncertainty, suffering, characterial problem and of course love. This kind of relation, universally recognized, invited me in the years to reflect on how people are influenced by the context in which they grow up and how this context changes the way you see the world and the way people relate not just with their family but also with the entire world. These photographs are a work in progress and they means for me a way to overcome my past and start my own route.
