“This project started last year at a workshop with Alessandra Sanguinetti. She sent me to document an upholstery and to take a portrait with the owner of that place. The portrait was awful but an idea was born after seeing a white chair with a broken arm. What if this chair would be a women?
What age she would have? I wrote this idea down and I went back to my country. After one year I returned to San Francisco and I started to put everything together. I did the portraits of the chairs first and when I felt I had enough to tell my story I began printing them. I looked at each print and I began to write the kind of person they inspired me. It was like the creation of a character for a movie, a process that I think I enjoyed most in constructing this series.”
