"The project consists of eight photographic shots, each representing one of the women who influenced the sentimental life and artistic work of Pablo Picasso: Fernande Olivier, Eva Gouel, Gaby Depeyre, Olga KhaKhlova, Marie-Therese Walter, Dora Maar, Francoise Gilot and Jacqueline Rocque. The project was conceived from the need to tell the story and give a face to the women who always lived under Picasso's wings and influenced the work of the most known artist of the twentieth century. The idea is to show how the personality of each muse was affected by the relationship with the painter. Each woman is shown in a location that represents the character's subconscious. The shots were taken in France, where the painter spent the high points of his life and in Italy. The choice of the self was moved by the desire to identify with the personality of each woman. Although very different from each other, the women are linked by the all-consuming love they had for the same man. The project was carried out in medium format film."
