Bali, Indonesia

Women in Bali is a journey into the feminine hearth of the island of Bali, where water is still venerated as Holy Water, the sacred origin of all life.

A long story of Women, symbiotically express the strength and the grace of a place where Nature and Spirituality are harmoniously combined with respect for life.

"Bali is a living island, a place that has always stirred in me contrasting emotions, stimulated by its fluid and changeable light, by a rituality made up of gestures that render the invisible visible and, above all, by a diffuse beauty that reflects a harmony that is continually reinvented.

Over time, I have met many women, both from Bali and elsewhere, who have launched important artistic, ethical and social projects on the island. Through their portraits I have tried to grasp their essence, describing the force of the female energy symbolised by water, the holy water, a vehicle of ancient memories and an instrument of healing. 

The images touch on the daily life of a place in which everything is sacred and where the creating power of nature echoes with the creative energy present in each of us, rendering our dreams more lucid and attainable."
