Smoke Portraits by Stefano Bonazzi
Stefano Bonazzi is an Italian photographer living and working in Ferrara, a small city in Northern Italy. His main medium is digital photography working also on post-production of the photos, to create eerie and surreal imagery. His main themes are identity and anxiety and the main subject people. In this proposal Bonazzi tries to connect people with their own souls. “Smoke fascinates me because it is hypnotic, evanescent and impalpable […] I often compare the smoke to the human soul and in my series “Smoke” I just try to contrast the weight and consistency of the human body with the lightness and elusiveness of his soul, that in these shots I try to represent their with the use of the smoke.” he explains in an interview given late last year.
