"Mad As A Hatter" (Matto Come Un Cappellaio) Opera Fotografica Surreal Fine Art

With this Work we therefore want to investigate the social reality in which we are inserted today to analyze the condition in depth human. The elements present in the work are metaphorical examples suitable for to underline the chaos, the spiritual pollution, the depression and the anger towards our fellow beings and towards ourselves. We strengthen the individual as a being solitary. We take refuge in submissive or extremely aggressive behavior. The tree is the symbol of Life, of the constant desire to be reborn, to plant strong, solid roots; but nature is dry and everything seems hopeless. Man can not react to the oppression inflicted by himself and by the society he has created. The Human Being in apparent physical form, with a sculpted chest, tries and tries to free himself, he would like to go back and on himself he sees a glimmer of light but continues to find himself entangled in artificial and decadent structures. Many elements that lead to reflection on the individual and where he is heading as a solicitation for a practical and spiritual awakening.
