Summary/Abstract: Sara Romani, an Italian photographer based in Boston, Massachusetts introduces us two series of photographs: About Beauty, Love and Fear and Suspended Boundaries. The series titled About Beauty, Love and Fear is a visual poem from a documentation during her first pregnancy. In order to grasp full awareness of the many changes, she has been actively documenting her life and the life that surrounded her. Her photographs focus on the prosaic, the familiar and the simply ordinary, but the images can take on a deeper significance, and what at first materializes as subjective and intimate turns into a narration to share for its universal echoes. In the series Suspended Boundaries Sara Romani expresses her fascination with the myriad ways that photographs translate reality and how they invite us to question our knowledge of what is actual. Photographs represent unstable stages made of layered sheets of paper. She created pictures that stand on the fine line between abstraction and figurative representation, awareness of represented reality and pure aesthetic pleasure. Pictures, which can express simultaneously a chronicle, an intuition or a provocation, are the most valuable manifestation of the author, both as an artist, and as a human being.
