I bought my first camera in 2012 when the idea for this project was born and lasted until 2018. The project is called "Alone" and has 10 images.

Alone is about loneliness and the burden of bearing it by yourself. Loneliness seen not as an opportunity to find oneself, but as a monster, as something with exclusively negative connotations. We live in a time when, even if we are connected on all social channels, we are alone, more and more alone. There are people who experience a strong sense of loneliness that comes in and does not disappear regardless of the social situation or how many friends they have. No matter where you are, at sea, at home, in the city, chronic loneliness acts like a prison: you can't get out of it.

A recent study done on more than 3.4 million people, especially from North America, but also from Europe, Asia, and Australia, investigated the role that social isolation, loneliness or living alone has on mortality. Scientists found that these three situations had a significant and similar impact on the risk of premature death.

"Alone" a photo project about the feeling of - I'm alone anyway.
