Through my photography, I work on a type of unconventional portraiture that involves eliminating faces and concentrating on what may be seen as secondary details. These details are often important in understanding the psychology of the person in the picture. The subjects of the second series of portraits part of the Unconventional Portraits Project have been photographed in such a way that nothing but legs and shoes are visible in the foreground. The photos are taken in a home or work environment, conveying an impression of the contemporary Italian reality as seen from a different perspective. The 30 photos of the project are included in the Bata Shoe Museum permanent collection that also hosted an exhibit from June to September 2013.
