Présentation détaillée du projet
My name is Sara Di Franco, I'm twenty-five years old and I'm a documentary photographer, although I often prefer to define myself first of all as an observer. Photography is the path I have chosen to give voice to my profound interest in reality and in the stories that can take shape from it, and therefore be told.
My first meeting with Argentina took place in 2014, when I had the opportunity to fly to Buenos Aires and live there for six months as part of a university exchange. It was a very complex experience, full of emotions also very contrasting between them, but all of them prevailed (and still prevail) curiosity. Precisely for this reason, when I chose to pursue this career, I could not rule out the idea of continuing what I had started, and even if it took time, I'm here now.
"Almas" is a long-term project that draws its origin from the elements of the territory itself, from the remains of history that it bears in the places I have visited, and from the people I met along the way: all "souls" in fact.
During my first stay in Argentina, I learned that it is a country with a rich history and culture, enormously diversified also in relation to the wide geographical distances, and I was fascinated by the way in which these stories and cultures can exist and coexist within a single nation, despite the thrusts of globalization.
Exactly this is what I would like to tell.The intent of the report is to return to the observer some of these elements, through a visual key focused on the vivid colors and the authenticity of the composition.
In the first part of the project I was able to explore the Andean Northwest, the North East and part of the central Pampas; thanks to your contribution this time I will have the opportunity to push myself south and enter one of the most ancient and fascinating regions of Argentina.
