Words and images by Cristina Rizzi Guelfi
I am a self-taught photographer born in Swiss Confederations. After Uni I lived here and there focusing in my passion for images that I saw in my mind and wanted to recreate slowly honing my skills either in digital and analog photography and visual art. Now based in Sardinia I keep moving around promoting my work. I did collective exposition in Rome , Milan, Turin and Paris and some of my works are currently on display at various location.
The series “Phobia” born by chance, reading a list of phobias. I realized that today’s man seems to be always threatened by himself, by his surroundings, but even more, by his intellect. And this multifaceted alienation leads to the drama of contemporary human existence, which lives more and more in fear. I wanted to contrast this “anguish” with the irony and color of the photographs by associating them with a darker and surreal text.
