The act of transfiguring is the change in shape or appearance. The metamorphosis of the reality to access another vision, another identity of the body.
Through a play of lights, new or different parts of the being, of the human, of the figure are revealed.
What is identity, what are we, what is hidden in the bodies, in the forms of women, of the feminine, those are Claire Clelia Baldo's researches and questionings in her photographic work.
The identity that is hidden in that "beyond", beyond the figure and appearance to which we are confronted in our everyday. Body and also emotions, revealed through this same transformational process. An alchemy created by the reaction to the light and thanks to the complicity between photographer and model.
The TRANS-FIGURA project, centered on the ballerina Anna-Lisa Alesiani made accomplice to the photographer, captures this oneiric dimension of another visual plane, where movement and mutation become a dance of lights and forms.
