“We live in an increasingly interconnected world where, owing especially to social media, ‘global’ cannot translate into a levelling of individualities in favour of Western-centred representational and aesthetic models.
In order to contrast the visual homogenisation we should reclaim diversity in all its forms (be it physical, gender-related, geographical or cultural) to inspire a desire for welcoming and curiosity towards different cultures in favour of a better understanding of our contemporary society.” Vogue Italia.
I was one of the participants of Embracing Diversity exhibition.
I approached Maria Petit, a 27 years old beautiful woman to collaborate together.
Maria lost her eyes in an accident. We wanted to break down stereotypes about blind people and inspire others.
She said:“Sometimes people tell me: you don’t look blind…How exactly should a blind person look like?”
Today I’m involved in an upcoming project on blindness disability and social media.
