    It's a self-portraits series plus the hands of the model Andrea Nasuto. I get his release.

It's a series that want to investigate the Love issue. Sometimes we are so weak to accept everything, to let our partner be predominant until we totally forget who we are.They are 5 photos as 5 stages of the process. I added real pins and a red thread to simulate the net we remain trapped1: Falling in love. You get carried away with a smile and it’s so strong the feeling you trust in, that you naively close your eyes. 2 The blind love! You are so stretch forward your Lover, that you are unconditionally available to accept everything. 3 piece by piece the soul of your lover is established above yours, he silently penetrates into your EGO, building a strong net. 4 It’s the moment which you risk your own identity becoming who your partner think you are. This is not you 5. you open your eyes up again and recognize you are stuck. The loss of own identity.
