La Prigionia Mentale (Prisoner of the Mind) 心靈の囚徒

Updated: Mar 9

The Prison of the Mind, a place that breeds fear....

Prisoner of the Mind is a phrase that describes the feeling of being trapped by one's own (negative) thoughts, emotions, or beliefs. It can be caused by various factors, such as trauma, stress, depression, anxiety, or addiction.

It is a not uncommon theme frequently featured in modern art.

It's a topic in art that many artists like to do when making an art piece but is also a problem that many artists commonly face in real life.

I am so glad I got to make an art piece of it at Venice during Carnevale...

This portraits are for a friend who recognised me on the streets of Venice during Carnevale...Gaetano was having coffee at a streetside cafe with friends when he saw me walking by, so he decided to ask me for a photo. I said, "ok, just 5 minites..." and took him to a quiet corner of the streets to take this portrait...

As usual, all photos done only with natural lighting...
