Persona - a series of self portraits taken in different places, situations and circumstances.

Persona plays on a double aspect: on the one hand it is presenting my image/character to the others, on the other, it is the way that others perceive it.

A specific feature of these self-portraits is the direct dialogue with the camera. It focuses on my own image, all the other objects and persons orbit around the central subject.

The project expands continuously, looking for new ways of representation according to my own artistic development and to different cultural backgrounds I experienced. This process cannot leave out a certain degree of randomness.

Persona is part of a larger project, ID_quest.
