SCHIENE (backs) is a photographic project started in the summer of 2021.


The back is the only part of our body on which we cannot direct our gaze. It happens only by reflection, or it is shown to us through an interlocutor (a photograph, for example). Yet the back says a lot about us, it takes on expressions, almost as if it were a face.


In this work I made each model’s back the face with which to express themselves. From a design point of view, they are not turned, but facing the viewer, meaning that their identity is expressed through the gesture of the back .


SCHIENE is a dedication I make to this portion of all of us. A caress, if you will.
