Artist Faces His Own Inner Demons In These Stunning Photographs

Matteo Rigosa, Italy-based fine-art photographer and model introduces us to his new project – Phototherapy. The breathtaking black-white series provokes our psychoanalytic perspectives to their very core, displaying deep-down hidden concepts of consciousness for everyone to see.

The artist describes his Phototherapy series as an emotional projection in real life and a challenge. He says: “Phototherapy is a project that has been created with the aim to help coping with anxiety and depression. Projecting my emotions in the creative process of a photograph makes me able to give them a shape and to define them as well as studying them and discrediting them eventually”.

What’s truly amazing is the photographs are actually self-portraits. The way the artist uses his own body in the center of his own inner feelings is even more brain-melting. “Using my own self as the subject of every picture makes me able to re-experience every situation with an inward-looking and I can therefore take therapeutic benefit from what I can get from every new comparison. Every photo is a challenge and every victory makes me stronger”, he explains.

In other words, he’s facing his real demons in order to destroy them. Pretty much like when you write a bad memory on a piece of paper and burn it to get rid of it.
