In Francesco Pergolesi’s new series STARS, he creates environments that show women in scenes that are simultaneously normal and extraordinary, represented in the intimacy of their daily ‘inner/interiors.’
Inspired by the women in his life, Pergolesi says, “Each woman in my life welcomed me gently, leaving a lasting trace on my identity. In my new series, every environment tells a story about a woman; it is the place chosen, created, and live in.”
Francesco Pergolesi was born in Venice in 1975. After finishing his law degree, dedicated himself entirely to photography. He is an artist-photographer whose work explores the territory of memory. Every single shot is a kind of a theater scene. His subjects are revealed in the lights and shadows reminiscent of Flemish paintings. He lives and works between Spoleto, Rome and Barcelona.
