"Imaginary memories" is a serie of portraits which wants to investigate how our memory can build up imaginary tales, making us remember situations which never happened and deleting part of our personal history. This serie, which is still ongoing, is made of minimalist portraits of imaginary people, in which the spectator is actively involved and encouraged to imagine what's the story behind.
