In her images, Ludovica Anzaldi tries to represent human beings in all their complexity, their darkness, their poetry, their sensuality. She choses to shoot female bodies to illustrate her purpose because it is through their lines and curves that Life can be found. In each image, her models share a piece of their existence, in which the viewers can easily find themselves, by travelling inside their intimacy and getting at the source of our own genesis. Through this questioning she proposes many different views of life.
