can one transform metaphysic longing and spirituality into photographs?
She participated, speaking of war reporting, in various events organized by University of Turin, UNICEF, the Italian Federation of Photographers, Italian Association Victims of Terrorism, RAN Berlin, Museum of the Resistance in Turin, RAI TV and many local networks.
In the last four years she has closely followed the Syrian war going on site several times because, as the great master Kapuściński said:
"I can not tell how people die at war by sitting in a hotel, far from the battle. How do I know how people feel in a siege, or how is the battle, or which weapons have the soldiers, what clothes they wear, what do they eat and what do they feel?

The women represented in classical art historical paintings. and the artists’ self portrait become intertwine in an attempt to reduce the distance between the sexes. The photographs express the inner exile of the artist, who interprets his surroundings while being at a distance
I see them every day and everywhere. I can’t do without catching them with my camera, they are always pure and the most innocent, poor or rich, student or worker, sake or with good health.

In my image I show both, negative and positive sides, children are the light in the dark that I need to capture my image…
