Photography and Digital Art Prize Finalist 2015
Metamorphosis by Francesca Pompei
About the artwork
Photography mirrors reality, but it also mirrors the photographer’s internal being. A language which is credible and valuable only if it originates from feeling and understanding the events and the emotions it represents. In this case, photography can underscore the invisible space between language and the visual world, a space in which transformation and disorientation continually occur, to seek ever new ways to suggest the complex internal dynamics that lie beneath appearances.
