Lapse into the unconscious and let it be the only guide: an operating method trough which the shots of Anna di Prospero are based on. Collected into the series “Instinct”, those images arise spontaneously, as the result of an inner strength, a primordial instinct that led the author to the realization of photographs seemingly disparate and free from any initial planning. An observation a posteriori let Di Prospero discovered the consistency and the meaning of this spontaneously born work: as she says, these shots are the visual transcription of intimate traces impressed in her memory. Produced between 2011 and 2012, the images differ between self-portraits, genre beloved by the author, and portraits of her boyfriend; fragments of faces (lowering eyes and smiling, talking or kissing mouth) and body (such as hands or the backstrips immortalized often during tender hugs) were associated to an architecture or landscape detail belonging to her mental archive, in which the author experience’s images are. As final choice, Anna Di Prospero composed in diptychs these shots with digital elaborations of photographs of water, clouds, flowers, grass, rocks, dirt and dust. Born in Rome in 1987, she studied photography at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Rome and at the School of Visual Arts in New York. In 2008 she has been selected for the International Festival of Photography “Foto Grafia-Roma “, with an exhibition at Gallerati Gallery. In 2011 she has been awarded as the winner of the People section of the “IPA” 2011, and in the same year, she obtained the title of “Discovery of the Year Award” of the prestigious “Lucie Awards”.
