"ABECEDARY"

ABC as a unit of measurement of the self, of one's experiences meditated through photography. This is the intimate microcosm described in Cristina Cusani's images, shots that interpret the emotional experience that the photographer processes from time to time from daily memories. Cristina Cusani adopts the approach of facts to words and thoughts to images, building a personal experiential vocabulary, in which the individual letters develop into reflections coming from the familiar, from discovering and acting in the world itself. The shots become moments, food for thought, material and immaterial places on which to focus attention and through which to start a knowledge of one's own being.

Close points of view and attention to detail are the tools used by the photographer to explore, as if under a magnifying glass, a contemporary archeology of past, people, skills and personal encouragement. Cristina Cusani's syllabary tells of the links between reflections and images, through combinations of thoughts that invite reverberation, to the creation of ever new primaries, both intimate and from the experience of others.
