Into the Flesh deals with the carnal aspect of our being, it deals with fault and defects.
The act of retraining the ‘wrong’ shoots, those that are eliminated, thrown away, deleted from cameras’ memories, depicts for me a new iconology of the human state. Each expression we take is made not just by the instant of its perfection, but in all the instants that really compound it.
For the shooting it was asked a group of people to pose in front of the camera. As soon as they realized to be the subject of a picture they changed their attitude, trying to look as good as possible: fakeing their expressions.
