Females is a project that concerns all women of my family.

Women are the majority, they touch all generations and roles within the family.

It’s a long-term project that consists in collecting fragments, intimate scenes, details, emotional revelations of our lives as women.

It’s about moments of calm or deep emotion, quiet and introspective moments.

Each photo is a piece of our lives.

Sicily is the other protagonist of this project: the interior, curtains, lace, flowers, light, shadows.

This research began naturally. I started shooting my family’s women few years ago without having any particular project in mind. Photographing them was a way of approaching them, bridging the distance, in silence and on tiptoes.

An emotional resource to give life, through the pictures, to the universe of my imagination in which I have embedded them since I was a child.

Women in my family are a very important presence in my life, Sicilian women, headstrong, with a temperament, but also fragile, very complex universes.

There are generational, historical, natural and emotional differences, and this is for me a source that I will never stop to give a form.

I realized with time that what I photographed was their universe and mine, it was our dimension that had a single denominator: my personal vision and the context made of lace, tents, flowers, summer, bridal veils, moments, and especially, my Sicily.

I hope that this work will go with me all my life, like a very personal family album.
