The term "Metamorphosis" derives from the Greek word, from meta (change) and morphe (form). Literally then, it means “change of form”. In fact, metamorphosis is the passage from one form – or shape – to another, the transformation into a different state, the transfiguration of an object changing its own nature.
This series of self portraits is created with the intention of seeking a harmony which can exist between the human body and the boundaries of a determined place, and to recreate it through photography. I let my body immerge itself in the space, taking multiple forms and engaging with it.
In this project of mine my research for a relationship with nature is guided by my senses, which tend to impose themselves, to crate a contact with the environment, Nature in this case has made me feel a sense of belonging, in a place in which I don't feel like an outsider, but like the missing piece of an incomplete structure.
My presence in these places becomes fixed, my body changes, mutates, becomes an element in a totally new context. In these places I found tranquility and, for once, the world seemed to be exclusively restricted to a limited space, familiar and close to my feelings.
