Young & Battaglia
Sleeping portrait of woman so still, calm and serene a butterfly takes rest on her for mutual rest and healing. We may be looking at two stages or two frames in a single image. The butterfly is seen twice, once with wings lifted and once with wings horizontal. Is the healing spoken of in the title responsible for a the butterflies regeneration perhaps? Is the sleeping so still and undisturbed by things around her that she is completely motionless?
Himitsuhana started research in photography in 2007. She investigates the inner relation between photography and painting, and takes inspiration from the Pre-Raphaelites painters and Liberty style. She has worked as designer for storybooks, fashion and entertainment sectors. "I believe that photography is more than technique, it is more than having an expensive equipment. I am deeply convinced that photography (the way it means to me) is not the camera, it is the eye that stands behind the camera. My aim is to portray every single glance of the human soul and encourage people to dream and never stop believing in dreams."
