    Silver in People/Self-Portrait

I opened my scar and I jumped into it pursuing to explore old fears and feelings that are still ghosts to me. Where the other see destruction I see myself, blending into forgotten and crumbling places that are so familiar to me. They are the metaphor of my oldest wound: the abandon. This project is a travel into my fears through a series of self-portraits with the aim of looking at my darkest side in order to get over it.
