Becoming Simone (*signed*)

@ Bernardini, Alessia

N/A - AV0079


Alessia Bernardini's presentation:

"Becoming Simone is a story about a man who has been living in a woman's body until the age of 51. The project is an investigation through memories, courage, discomfort, dreams and life expectations."

A beautiful project on the quite difficult and moving subject of gender transformation, and imprisonment in an enveloppe that you feel does not belong to you.

A beautiful book, delicate and complex, that takes us along on this path of life, searching for the true personality and the true body of this person - born a woman - who wants to become Simone (a male name in Italy)

The production choices of the book, with the double binding, the intermingled or tangled pages, the images covering one another, the long and thin thread that closes the book, add to the fragility and complexity of the story...

This book won the "Self-publish Riga" award and has been shortlisted for the FotobookFestival "Dummy Awards 2014".
