This series of images is an interpretation of the effects that the recent lockdown had on mankind. It is a reminder of the fear felt on a global scale. Most important, it is there to remind that the human race can prevail and adapt in order to survive and ultimately overcome the damage done by the pandemic. So even though the images might come across as dark, they are in fact a celebration of the human spirit.
Inspired by the political events that shook 2016, this series observes the dissonance between our perception and reality in the age of social media and catered news feeds. The aim was to question how our materiality can be warped by our opinions and judgements, using the existential currents of Jean Paul Sartre’s "Nausea".
Visual Identity System for Fondazione Alinari per la Fotografia is based on A letter as a focus. A stands for Alinari and is an abstraction of a camera lens. The form is a container in which the photos of the huge historical archive can be shown. All the items are designed with this concept. It is mainly a black and white brand, with a 3 colour secondary palette taken form the daguerreotype photos.
