Hi, I'm Francesca, a photographer based in The Netherlands.

  • Quarantine Close Up - Portraying during Coronavirus pandemic⁣.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In this weird time the way we meet people changes. ⁣
Since all started Skype, FaceTime, Whatsapp became the only instruments through which we can experience our friends, family and colleagues. ⁣
⁣
How can I genuinely represent these relationships?⁣
⁣
This made me think about how I could use my camera and keep doing photographs.⁣
⁣
The depth between two different backgrounds, emphasizes, now more than ever, how the technological means destroys defined walls of our quarantine.⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Ongoing project ⁣

  • I’m joining this photo flashmob posting some recent photos made in Italian museums.
This to remember that despite this hard time our cultural heritage is alive and it represents our country’s heart and identity. ⁣

  • Oggi ho trovato questa vecchia fotografia, scattata in un paese vicino Viterbo.
Mi ha fatto molta tristezza pensare a come, fino a poco tempo fa, la quotidianità specialmente per le persone più anziane fosse incontrarsi, sedersi una accanto all’altra a parlare e di come questo fosse di conforto, in particolare per quelle rimaste sole.
Italia, forza♥️

“I formed a relationship with beauty before I ever formed a relationship to gender per se and I realized that what kept me from transitioning for a very long time was not fitting within the idea of what beauty was, which is gender conforming. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
When I came to the conclusion I wanted to medically transition for real to heal from the physical drain that my curvature and being taken for a woman all the time, a lot of people tried to put me back in-to a box of gender-comformity of maleness, where I was also uncomfortable for a long amount of time. ⁣⁣
I think that there's a lot of humanness and the presence of both yin and yang denied to trans people as we are either expected to stay the same or completely want to be a hundred percent the other.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This binary thinking is not good for cis people and it adds a surreal layer of pressure onto trans people. ⁣⁣
Transgender burn-out is so real of an issue that nobody really talks about: the act of having to keep up a hyperconforming narrative as to make sure everyone knows 'you're happy now', while denying yourself complexities and a life that has nothing to do with gender, denying yourself nuances and sadness or even regrets, things you don't like about transitioning.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I still have a lot of anxiety around the acne on my face caused by testosterone and of course it's been worth it, I feel more comfortable in my skin then ever, but the fact my skin is screaming that it's full of infections everytime I look in the mirror is so stressful. I also get a lot of stress whenever expect me to do or like certain 'male' things.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I think a lot of people could really gain from hearing that trans people know what it's like to be both but how you can build up a human being to be anything, because we know what it's like to be perceived as both, even when we're not comfortable with being both.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
That's how I feel about my transness.”⁣ ⁣

This is Vince.⁣⁣

⁣⁣
Gender diversity is about many ways to identify outside of the traditional male - female binary. ⁣⁣
My photo project aims to make people aware and respectful of those who are gender diverse and the choices they make about their life.
