After carrying out an extensive research on these diseases and on the various treatment and / or forms of help I created a project that through the use of analogue photography (although experimental), can be at least an initial thrust towards a cure. Most therapies for DCA recommend always keeping a food diary to be filled out with the everyday meals. This idea inspired me to start from this principle but replacing the pen with a camera, and then photographing what you eat rather than writing it.
I simulated the diary of an anorexic girl, and i began from an initial collage of “thininspiration” and then i showed through analogue photography gestures and habits through which you can tell whether a person, maybe close to us, is suffering from these disorders. Then I conceptually represented the “dark” phase of a girl in the midst of DCA and afterwards a progressive healing and the “rebirth” through still life photos. In closing a food journal has been attached to the diary, assigned by doctors to people who want to heal from these disorders.
