I have spent all my childhood in the natural landscape of southern Switzerland where I walked in the woods around my home and went for long hikes with my father, friends and school trips. Today I live in big cities and my observation of plants has also focused on urban gardens and parks.
People and Plants is a fictional photo story inspired by real facts about the evolution of plants. In this series, most of the photos are shot in my native country’s woods and in urban gardens of several metropolitan areas. This ongoing photographic project is constituted of interactions between observation, fantasy, and history. I want to take the viewers into a fabricated fable that begins with the evolution of the first plants and flowers and goes on hinting at people’s impact on nature, also known today has Anthropocene age.
Below are images from my first edit, visual journal, and research.
