The idea and concept
What does identify you as a person? Do you feel related to a certain group or to a state?
Are you different from the crowd? How can you prove it? What's that so special about you?
Do you identify yourself as an independent unit or as a part of a certain circle of people?
Has your identity changed through the time as you were growing up and going through happy and tough life stages?
We invite you to reflect about these and any other questions that may pop-up in your mind and express it through your works.

My name is Yana Shpitsberg. In my art photography I am currently exploring Nudity topic.
It's not easy to be a photographer of these genre in our days. Instagram blocks our pages or shadows our posts. Not everyone is ready to see the body like an art object. But I believe that's why it's even more important to continue my job!
This project in Rome is my second experience of curating a group exhibition. There is a lot of work behind the scene to make it happen. I am not part of some organisation, I am a photographer and an artist like you. So that's a project created by photographer for photographers (of any level). I am doing it with a lot of love and I hope you will send us your best works.
