I am pleased to announce that my series ‘The Heliades’ has received four honorable mentions at the 2012 International Photography Awards.
This has been the very first time that I entered a competition, so I’m definitely flattered to have received such a positive feedback.
I have just uploaded the series at high-resolution: Check it out here
More images will be added to these four, which are the core of the project.
Here’s a brief description of this work:
While reading Ovid’s Metamorphoses, I came across an episode that changed my vision of my surroundings forever: the ‘Heliades’, daughters of the Sun, after the death of their brother Phaeton are transformed into Poplar trees on the banks of the Po river. I have always loved to walk on those banks, but now, every time I stop and listen, it almost feels like I can hear their laments and whispers in the wind.
