Emmanuela Cau - Self Portraits

It's for this sort of discovery I love to manage this blog. This Italian female photographer (from Sardinia), born in 1971 (on the pictures, she seems much younger) provides a fantastic iconography, somewhere between onirism, fantasy and inner torments. She's, as many of females using self-portraits, strongly influenced by Francesca Woodman, but with the modern digital technology and her own idiosyncrasic universe (based on childhood dreamy imagination full of princesses, wolves and puppets), this reference is not so heavily present. I do not adhere to everything she does and selected above my favorites, but no discussion, her work is strong and powerful, her imagery very interesting and not the one you find anywhere. Her site here and her fb page there. She's apparently included in some exhibitions so things may go well for her I hope.
