Him

  • Photographer
    Flavia Piola

”Him” is a photographic project born during the Covid-19 lockdown in Italy started March 9th, 2020. During this month, solitude and silence dominated the alleys of Rome, while the romans had to stay home. Since everything started, the days have passed and we have lost track of time. The movement, the possibility of walking has become a privileged need. I am a 27-years-old Italian young woman who doesn’t know what will happen tomorrow, but one thing is certain: I will have the opportunity to go out my home only for him.

Born in 1993, she began to dedicate herself to photography in 2016. She was admitted to the Higher Institute of Photography in Rome, where she obtained a three-year diploma in 2019. During that year she worked with an internationally renowned artist, organizing exhibitions in various galleries and museums in Italy, such as the MAXXI and the Macro in Rome. Meanwhile, she collaborated for some months with the agency of an important Italian newspaper, La Repubblica. Currently she is a student of the Master in Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism at the International Center of Photography.
