Online Gallery – Work in Progress

POSITION & PRACTICE – WORK IN PROGRESS PORTFOLIO

Advertisements

I’ve created an Online Gallery which includes my work in progress Portfolio and some old works to give a more clear sense to the path I am currently following.

The published works are related to street photography, portrait, architecture and fine art, but all of them are connected to People, to be considered as the “cornerstone” of my whole practice.

It aims to represent my past, my present and my future in Photography.

Raw and Natural

POSITION & PRACTICE – WORK IN PROGRESS PORTFOLIO

rn_contactsheet_online

Image: “Raw and Natural”, Contact Sheet – Turin, Italy.

A journey into female body to discover and exhibit her femininity and her intimate complexity. Woman as a natural element, raw, without social conditioning, exploring herself, proud of her interior world.

The work is divided in three stages: approaching, questioning and exhibition.

It wants to go deeper and deeper to discover the anatomy of interiority starting from observation.

The project wants to portray the female body as something natural and uncontaminated, in order to represent the evolution of the mankind from its primordial traits to its current context, immune from all that social brainwashing that aims to shape it. The fish, both representing an animalization of the individual and a religious symbol, wants to reinforce the idea of naturalness of the body from different perspectives.

Commissioned Micro-Project

POSITIONS & PRACTICE – CREATIVE PRACTICE

WEEK 7 CREATIVE ASSIGNMENT: Taking inspiration from the practitioners discussed during this topic, form pairs and set each other a short brief to work on throughout the week. You should be sympathetic to each other’s locations, circumstances, resources, commitments and also – their current practice. The ‘shoot’ should not exceed a couple of hours at most, and you may be as prescriptive as you like. When your partner sends you their brief for you to consider and then fulfill, try to keep track of your creative thought process.

Brief Originator: Mandisa Mauring – Assigned Photographer: Dayana Marconi

Brief Title: Turin in Your Suitcase

Completion Date: Friday, November 4, 2016

DESCRIPTION/REQUIREMENTS

“Turin in Your Suitcase” is a project aimed at attracting visitors to Turin using a visual narrative that highlights some of the city’s interesting tangible facts.

Assigned photographer/s will be expected to produce photos that ‘speak’ to the viewer using creative formats that are visually clear, authentic (not overly digitally enhanced) and compelling.  Interesting facts about Turin are listed as a guide not a rigid requirement to duplicate. The photographer is expected to conduct his or her own research prior to selecting a set of interesting facts to cover.

In keeping with Falmouth University’s suggestion:  assigned photographers should consider ways to reduce any economic costs in relation to the assignment. At the completion of the photo assignment, the photographer must provide a reflective blog post along with the assigned photographs on his or her CRJ blog site.

INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT TURIN: The Mole Antonelliana was once the highest brick building in the world, Turin created the world’s first sealable solid/hard chocolate, The Fiat car gained popularity thanks to Turin, Turin’s Egyptian Museum has the second most important collection of Egyptian antiquities outside Cairo, Turin is home to the grissini breadsticks, The famous Shroud of Turin.

Turing is considered one of the vertex of a White Magic triangle with Lyon and Prague. One of the most important places in the city, that mix Magic, Religion and Myth, is the statue in front of the Cathedral known as The Great Mother. This statue, that symbolizes the concept of  Faith, represents a woman covered with a veil who holds a cup observing a distant point. According to the legend, her eyes indicate the direction to find the Holy Grail.

At the same time, Turing is also considered one of the vertex of a Black Magic triangle with London and San Francisco. One of the most popular touristic attraction for passionates of Magic is The Doorway of the Devil. Its door-knocker represents the Devil who observes those visitors who want to enter into the building and, according to the legend, it was placed by the Devil itself to imprison a wizard; what it’s sure is that this building is historically connected with famous murders and disappearances.

Victorian Sleep

STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS – CREATIVE PRACTICE

Travelling on crowded Chinese tube it is very common observing local passengers sleeping until their destination and their posture always made me think about Victorian custom of portraying dead people in sitting poses remembering the act of sleeping, as they were still alive, still part of this world but just “absent” for a moment.
This aimed to be a sort of opposite path, I wanted to portray still living people who seemed immersed in an eternal sleep: the common point between the two situations is the pose.
I decided for black and white post-production to link two eras and I assembled a collage of three sections, parts of the same photo, starting from facial expressions, representing the link to the past, to subjects’ footwear that, with the location, take the observer back to these days.
