Collettivo Ingwer/Camilla Parini e Chiara Caterina

Photos of women telling their stories, each through two self-portraits: the first portrays the realistic image the woman has of herself, the second portrays the image of what she is, but remains hidden.

The photographed body is not theirs, but that of the performer Camilla Parini, who makes herself totally available to them, like material to be moulded to recreate the image they have of themselves.
Each woman is responsible for undressing, untrimming and dressing this “body material” as she sees fit. This is done, as far as possible, through the use of clothing, make-up and objects owned by the woman herself. She then chooses the place where the body is to be posed and constructs the frame in which it is to be portrayed. A professional photographer is at her disposal to take the photos of the two completed self-portraits.

In Milan, thanks to the support of the Consiglio di Zona 9 and the INTERKULT exhibition coordinated by ZONA K, the project has involved Milanese women from all over the world: China, Morocco, Ukraine, Serbia, Syria, Tunisia and the Philippines. Together they tell us fragments of the new female universe of our city.

Johannesburg. 2012

In every corner of the city you feel the eyes of dozens of people on you. You – a white man – alone in downtown Johannebsurg.

Preserving your safety in downtown also relies on constantly observing who is watching you and assessing whether it is better to change direction, continue, turn back or run.

Top of africa is the highest point of the tallest building on the entire African continent: a tourist terrace from which you can get a 360° view of the city.

As soon as I arrived at this privileged place dedicated to a few tourists – where none of the real inhabitants have ever climbed – I realised that here the roles could be reversed.

I – a white man – can now observe and control the entire city undisturbed, every corner, every movement.
