Instinct (2012), Anna Di Prospero
Collected into the series Instinct, Anna di Prospero’s images arise spontaneously, as the result of an inner strength, a primordial instinct that led the author to the realization of photographs seemingly disparate and free from any initial planning. Produced between 2011 and 2012, the images differ between self-portraits, genre beloved by the author, and portraits of her boyfriend; fragments of faces (lowering eyes and smiling, talking or kissing mouth) and body (such as hands or the backstrips immortalized often during tender hugs) were associated to an architecture or landscape detail belonging to her mental archive, in which the author experience’s images are. As final choice, Anna Di Prospero composed in diptychs these shots with digital elaborations of photographs of water, clouds, flowers, grass, rocks, dirt and dust.

"To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that enhances the freedom of others."
a song I wrote a while ago,
one of my first fretless song
"America is the wealthiest nation on Earth, but its people are mainly poor, and poor Americans are urged to hate themselves. Every other nation has folk traditions of men who were poor but extremely wise and virtuous, and therefore more estimable than anyone with power and gold. No such tales are told by American poor. They mock themselves and glorify their betters."
