InsideOut / UpsideDown

A series of digital photographs taken inside camera obscuras which I recreated into different people’s rooms.
Inspired by a very famous Italian pop song from the 60’s “Il cielo in una stanza” (the sky in a room), this project  discovers new landscapes and portrays women in their rooms, alone, with the view from outside projected inside upside down (by the physical principle of the camera obscura), exploring the concepts of inner and outer, solitude, identity and spaces. 
In her book  “A room of one’s own”  , Virginia Woolf talks about the boundaries that limited women to their domestic prison, the deep connection between living conditions and creative works. She asks for “equality”, she asks that women have the luxury of a room of their own, with a lock for privacy and freedom of thought.
Here you can see through the walls between inside and outside… public and private… the outer reality becomes the wallpaper of one’s own intimate space.
No more boundaries:
 “There is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind”
― Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own
