My Traviata

Lucrezia Rossi

The pictures show a being in white form, searching, crawling, standing in pompous, noble rooms or on stony streets – put up theatrically in the truest sense of the word, the pictures are madly alive. Although there are spatial structures and lines, it is much less about abstraction than about an abandoned person's emotions and feelings. 
The escape in the confrontation with oneself takes an important place. A central question is: Where do I belong, where do I find myself, what do I leave behind to see and feel my true self? The theme of a young woman's redemption – through art, in time and space – is in fact strongly connected with a fatefulness and with the image of a lost woman who has strayed from the path of virtue. Despite of the strong expression and the young woman's anguished presence, she still remains untouched, slightly repellent, and cool. She dies, and at the same time lives in her own (inner) spaces.

Lucrezia Rossi

I was born in 1992 in Lucca, Italy. After high school I started to study photography at the academy L.A.B.A in Florence. I moved to Berlin in 2016 where I am now finishing the photography programme of the University of Europe for Applied Sciences. In my work, I photograph staged self-portraits and daily life encounters by combining humour with reality, intimacy with softness. By re-signifying my past experiences through my images, this search for meaning becomes present, honest, but at the same time delicate and light.
