“Persona” in Latin actually meant “theatrical mask”, testifying that the true identity of each individual is always hidden beneath a mask. The mask is a choice, but often also a necessity because, in order to survive the wounds of rejection, abandonment, humiliation, betrayal and injustice, which cast a dark shadow over our lives, we react by wearing masks, thereby trying not to relieve that pain.
The “Persona” series was created with Polaroid films that were subsequently treated with natural substances to obtain graininess and shades of yellow.
