Diploma project, ECAL 2019

in MASTER PHOTOGRAPHY

by Bianca Maldini


As evidenced by ancient Calabrian tales and popular beliefs, blood, symbol of absolute bonds, influences free will and life cycles. I left, looking for these stories, to find out that, what today is linked to childhood, comes from an ancient communion with nature that modernization is eroding. Combining images and words, I explored the boundary between fantasy and reality at the origins of myths. The project raises thoughts on the fascination for the ancestral and the dynamics of acceptance of the fantastic mixing anthropology and visual art.
