lost identities

The project Lost identities comes to light in early 2011, following the deep interest in the study of the segnaletic photography dating back to the beginning of last century. The work is developed through a photographic and archival research in former mental hospitals: the study of those documents and photographic plates showed features and aesthetic values closer to art than the psychiatric science.
 
 
Il progetto Lost identities si sviluppa all’inizio del 2011 in seguito ad un maturato interesse verso la fotografia segnaletica di primo Novecento. Il lavoro evolve tramite l’indagine fotografica e la ricerca d’archivio in ex istituzioni manicomiali: lo studio dei documenti e delle lastre fotografiche ha evidenziato caratteri e valori estetici più vicini all’arte che alla scienza psichiatrica.
