Extract from 'I am your Mirror' photography book by Loredana Denicola.
Then I met Tony.
I called him the Artist.
Meeting him was a very awkward experience.
He is an artist, he travels the world.
He is a singer other than a very sporty man. And he is quite famous in East-Europe.
I realised that later, when he gave me his Facebook account.
He uploaded his photos and his various shows movies, that he was doing around the world.
My idea was to photograph myself and twelve strangers that I would find through the Internet.
These strangers, unpaid, would be free to choose a time and place to be photographed. They could express themselves as they wished, and could be anonymous, or not. I asked the strangers to look at the camera as if a mirror.
I was looking for people with obsessions, fears, paranoia, dreams that would love to pose in front of my camera like a mirror.
I would meet them and take some pictures of them.
