“Conceptual Isolation” is a journey into the events and emotions of these troubled times of the coronavirus pandemic, with a touch of irony and a drop of mindfulness.
Stefania Piccolo, creator behind “sophistikfool photography”, while isolating, felt the need to portray the current situation somehow, though obviously had nothing to photograph but the items in the house. It occurred to her that combining those items in a certain way could represent what was going on in a series of concept photos – each captioned according to the matter at hand – and so the project was born.
From contamination, to the general guidelines, to the problematic nature of staying connected at a distance, to how to occupy one’s time at home, to what we will remember of these times, and finally to finding a solution and returning to the magic of normalcy; you will find each of these subjects rendered with just about anything: flowers, shoes, vases, kitchen tools, food, hair and beauty products, toys, hammers and other such items.
It is a project designed to make one smile but also think, and hopefully entertain at a time in which it is particularly difficult to enjoy anything. The message she is attempting to convey is that this too shall pass, and what we always thought to be normal is actually magical, so it must be savoured and revered.
