2018 forward back to the roots!

I learned by living that everything you want immediately, never comes in a twist, because life also needs time to generate life. With this spirit, I look at the horizon close to my heart, because every day is precious and should not be wasted in the anxieties that society imposes on us. Step by step, little by little, I’ll reach the goal, focused and full of energy to conquer the wonders of the world. I ended 2017 light and happy, in an earthly paradise, meditating every day to start a year full of joy and gratitude for all of life gives me. Thanks to all of you who have walked beside me or gifted with your energy so that my task on this earth can go on. Friends, customers, fans, colleagues, followers, son, former boyfriends, enemies and who will come, I am like a butterfly flying from one flower to another, sometimes fleeting but of help whenever needed. Let’ smile to life and this new year that will be really something magical. 2018 welcome! Back to the...

Selfie in the ancient times

Selfie in the ancient times

I read an interesting article this morning  by Michele Smargiassi. It throw me back to my psychology researches in portraiture that I have been doing for several years and when it was not fashionable to use the term ‘psychology’ in anything. I myself portray me in this category except for the fact that I have been doing it since I was young when I did not yet know why I did it before someone called it “selfie” and after great men in history like Artemisia Gentileschi, Gustave Coubert (see his series of “desperate portraits”), Francis Bacon, Leonardo Da Vinci, Caravaggio Andy Warhol painted or shot self-portraits, and this is only a tiny examples of those who used the “selfie” in the past. Man always needed to have a dialogue with the image of the self as a testify to his presence on earth, well aware that the momentary moment of fixing himself on a support would have immortalized him forever, power that he did not have if not on a support he chose. MICHELE SMARGIASSI...
