Twice Love [2014/2009]
Twice Love is an artist’s book I realized together with my partner Emanuela Bongiovanni, who is also a photographer. The project started when we came across some negatives belonging to Emanuela’s parents, through which is possible to retrace the beginning of their love story.
By visually comparing their relationship with our own experience, the book revolves around the stereotype of the couple: as soon as the “old” pictures are placed side by side our photographs, both pre-existing and made on this occasion, the differences vanish and all of them become contemporary and connected to a whole general meaning.
In this way, we try to show the role that photography can play in the definition and identification of certain kinds of human and social interactions.
