AUNTIE MARIA

This story called Zia Maria (in English “Auntie Maria”) is the second story in a series of photographic projects featuring my family members.

This time I wanted to bring my beloved auntie into my world, and like all the other members of our family, she started making clothes very early. In fact, in the photos Zia Maria wears her own creations that were made 40 years ago — including her wedding dress, which she still wears with the same elegance but with a provocative and modern twist, enticing the camera with her confidence.
