ROSIE N.Y.08 Project being selected for HANGING AROUND show, promoted by E.U. cultural program. It is about softness and tenderness of the absence of action. The picture is taken in New York in January 2008. The city looked at me filled with delusion. What has been for long time the essence of the city, an endless enthusiasm, was gone. I decided to work again with a cheerleader but this time what is left is the shell of it but, the look while the inner strength is gone. It s a picture of America in a difficult time, an empty time.
