Hi everyone! My name is Ernesto Parisi, My stronger passion is the photography it’s my personal way to read the world and during all my free time I have always my camera on my right hand.
If somebody would ever ask me why do I love photography so much, I will answer that in photography, reality is so subtle that becomes truer than reality itself.
During this last year I’ve been taking pictures of redhead people all over Italy for the Melanoma Prevention Campaign of the Melanoma Foundation of Naples.
It has been proved that, on people with red hair, the exposition to the sun is more dangerous than on people with different type of hair and skin.
This first project, has been realized in a studio, with a make-up artist, with a particular type of lights and absolutely no use of Photoshop in the for the post production phase.
I wanted to emphasize the characteristics of each person as natural as it was possible. I'd like to put the focus their naturalness and rarity, shooting them in different environment combining the beauty of the women wit the beauty of Italy , One of the goal of the book it’s also a weapon against the bullism that it’s still so present and frequent on redhead people.
I’ll make a tour of the 20 Italian Regions, selecting 80 Italian redhead women using the Italian nature and archeological treasure as background.
If you want to feel part of my new project,I would like to be able to show the beauty of these women, and I would be grateful if you could help me in supporting this project and sharing its story. The money collected will only be used for the entire project, and all related expenses will be covered by this crowdfunding. All the extra money collected with this campaign, will be donated to the Melanoma Foundation for skin cancer research.
