Entry Description: This project started last year, back then, a Magnum photographer
from San Francisco, Alessandra Sanguinetti, sent me to document
a place and to make a portrait with the owner of that place. There
I saw a chair and I imagined a story for it, what if this was a
human being, how it would look like? This series is the result of
many details brought together in order to convey what I imagined.
I tried to give little clues, some obvious, some subtle. I enjoyed
making this project and I'm very grateful to the people that helped
me to take the project to the current form.
