Alessandra Sormani

33

_MG_1670

33 is a collection of works including a series of oil paintings based on photographs. The title 33 was the age when Alessandra began painting the series, which together forms a fragmented autobiography of the previous two years of her life. The story begins with lost data from a wedding she was hired to photograph and unfolds with her journey as a photographer moving away from the digital medium. The story ends with the remaining charger from her laptop, stolen from her at the exhibition.
