LIFE´S WORK

The people I have portrayed in Life´s Work are immigrants that moved from Italy to Germany in search
of work and a new life. Some have returned back home to invest in property. The images question
the idea of work and capital bringing happiness. People move to achieve something new. For better or for worse.

TRABAJO DE VIDA

Este proyecto aborda desde una optica personal y metafórica el retorno de italianos procedentes de Alemania,
en concreto italianos que hicieron pequeñas fortunas para luego invertirlas en propiedades inmobiliarias de su pais.
Mis imágenes pretenden cuestionar la relación del trabajo y el capital con la felicidad y el deseo de cambio
de un individuo con la suerte y el destino.
