Mark
Resembling Masks

'This above all: to thine own self be true.' (Hamlet, Shakespeare)



In Viareggio, Italy, during the Carnival, people overflow into the streets masked and drunk. Everyone is chatting, making jokes, kissing etc. It is possible to sense the vibrance of human desires.
Resembling Masks aims to document the contradiction raised by this object. The mask covers, contains and constrains the face and, at the same time, it liberates. The camouflage is perceived as genuine. To hide the visible in order to discover the invisible, which is felt more original and authentic than the real itself.
