Photographs series taken in London during Central Saint Martins photography course with professor Brendan Olley.

Alexander Pope was an 18th century English poet, best known for his satirical verse and for his translation of Homer. Alexander Pope has optimistic feelings about humanity but he hates individuals and human imperfections. In his poetics we can always find the contrast between perfection and defects. Defects win because Pope himself says that the man who thinks to see things without defects, think about what has never been.

So, he hates defects but he knows that they are real. Only by combining various aspects about the same topic we can get unity and completeness, so a sort of perfection. Objects and situations represented in my photos make sense only if they are associated with other contexts that affect them. Perfection doesn’t exist but can be approached by considering the various parts that make up an object or a concept.
