About The Artwork

...................................................................... ART DESCRIPTION ----------------------------------------------------- Fine art photography 2014 This artwork is part of the series "Hair" where my aim is to visually interpret and explore all the qualities and symbols of hair as perceived by different cultures. Hair is a powerful symbol of individual and group identity, extremely personal and public at the same time. In most cultures hair represents beauty, strength, freedom, wealth and health and is often associated with youth and sexuality. According to other cultures long hair is needed to cover women's body when buried as they lack clothes. This artwork, together with all the images from the series "Hair", is included in the collection "Creatively", a collection of visual works of art that capture a moment, a fantasy, a representation of a lived reality. ART AWARD ----------------------------------------------------- This image, together with all the images of the series "Hair", was awarded an Honorable Mention at the "International Photography Awards 2015 (IPA)" PRINT DETAILS ----------------------------------------------------- Limited to an edition of 15 regardless of size.

------------------------------------------------ Alessandra Favetto is a self-portrait fine art photographer and visual artist, born in Italy in 1968, working and living in Spain, Sevilla, since 2005. Artistically she started her journey in fine art photography in 2013 when she discovered her passion for self-portrait, image manipulation and digital art. She is best known for her extensive work in self-portraits and for her surreal photo montages. Her style is true, passionate and very emotional. In her images there are always concepts and meanings that go far behind what a viewer can see, leaving a door open for a subjective interpretation. Her works and techniques spread in different directions, from color to black and white, from surrealism to digital art, remarking the author's hunger for knowledge and experimentation although always keeping a unique and identifiable artistic style. She has recevied international recognition with her work shown in different publications and book covers as well as being awarded in different competitions including the International Photography Awards, Prix De La Photographie Paris and Paratissima Art Fair. She participated in several group exhibitions in Spain and in Italy and in 2016 she had her first Solo exhibition in Sevilla. --------- Artwork prices: Artwork prices depend on: - dimensions - edition size - sales - awards
