About the work

Born during the 2020 pandemic, All That Glitters Is Not Gold is an ongoing

project that blurs the line between portrait and storytelling, adopting

photography as a coping strategy in this anxious age where visual

information overload creates an unstable and insecure perspective of reality.

A blend of stories and relatively dark emotions have been collected and

reconstructed adopting shiny, metallic and reflective materials to symbolise

the fabricated deception of reality we are experiencing and to characterise

the contrast between what we want to believe is real and what is actually
