Creative Photo Manipulations by Lecce, Italy based artist Chiara Fersini. Chiara started her research in photography back in 2007 investigating the inner relation between photography and painting, and taking inspiration from the pre-raphaelites painters and liberty style. At first Chiara was taking photos just for fun, but the more she went on, the more she realized that photography was the best way to show that intricate world she feels inside herself.
I was there! Amazing exhibition! My photos of photos special for FotoBodega’s friends 🙂

The inspiration of the series Mimicry came from the uniformity of persons. People from whom the identity is missing and those who are inconspicuous in our society. Just like animals they adapt to their environment. Visually in this series it is shown by the use of similar costumes, position and gender. For the series Mimicry the primary and secondary colors has been used, so the series exist of 6 pictures.
Mimicry has been published in Eyemazing issue #2, 2004.
Crewdson was born in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. He attended John Dewey High School, graduating early.
As a teenager, he was part of a punk rock group called The Speedies that hit the New York scene in selling out shows all over town. Their hit song „Let Me Take Your Photo” proved to be prophetic to what Crewdson would become later in life. In 2005, Hewlett Packard used the song in advertisements to promote its digital cameras.
In the mid 1980s, Crewdson studied photography at SUNY Purchase, near Port Chester, NY. He received his Master of Fine Arts from Yale University. He has taught at Sarah Lawrence, Cooper Union, Vassar College, and Yale University where he has been on the faculty since 1993. He is now a professor at the Yale University School of Art. In 2012, he was the subject of the feature documentary film Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters.
