At the end of 2011 I started to take pictures representing people turned on their back on. During a Palestine’s trip, someone showed me some satirical comic strips called “Andalo”, a character drawn always from the back, who look straight to the injustices of the rich and powerful people. He will turn on the front only when injustices will come to the end. In the meantime, the author of Andalo is dead, Andalo has never turned. Maybe he ‘ll be drawn on the back side forever.
I found in this story a huge expressive power, and I immediately wanted to take the cue: the disturbing image of necks and backs in the foreground, they sniffed technicians they are difficult to understand. In my opinion this kind of pictures are powerful: fuck the expression of the eyes, fuck the facial muscles, and all that is missing in a portrait without a face.
So, until I will feel that we are surrounded by people like shit, my way of going against to the rich, powerful and other shit, I will continue to do portraits of people turned on their back in order to continue to say the only word important to say: No.
