Cristiana Gasparotto is an Italian born photographer who currently lives and works in Madrid. With a background in history and literature, the artist found in photography a powerful and appropriate medium for her emotional experiences.
Some time ago, I started to observe the light through my camera and explore new personal territories to investigate the sensations I was feeling about it.
Her latest series “Fiorile”, is a synergy between the beauty of flowers and the fragility of the female human body. Black and white self-portraits with different parts graciously accompanied by flowers make up for a sensitive portrayal of the female body.
“Fiorile” is the Italian translation of the name of a spring month in the French Revolution. Here the term is interpreted as a contraction of ‘fiore’ (flower) and ‘femminile’ (female). In this work, it is my intention to pay homage to female grace and fragility. I choose to focus on details to express our most delicate and vital features. The elegance of the flowers and the intimacy of the nudes aim to represent the emotional universe I’m part of.
