Sandra Lazzarini: the sublimation of normality

Sandra Lazzarini fell in love for photography in the early 2000s, when she purchased a vintage twin-lens. She then began researching analog techniques and experimenting with lights and color – finally shifting to digital photography with an original style of her own, based on simplicity and poetry.

Her muses often cover their face as if hiding, and thus create a suspended and surreal atmosphere. Her “Bucato” (“Laundry”) series is a collection of self-portraits set between sheets and clothes hung to dry. Everyday, almost banal moments turn into symbolic and sensual images, with the awareness that it’s actually impossible to turn away or hide our identity and desires. Instead, we constantly balance between manifesting our true selves and keeping from others the bare truth.
