Francesca Floris, born in Oristano, Italy, in 1992. I make photos and cartoons. I attended the "Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia" in Rome. I've been working in the film industry as a professional for the past four years. In May 2020, I joined some colleague photographers in working with actors through the medium of the webcam, starting a series of photoshoots that are set during the Covid-19 emergency lockdown in Italy. The story of Las narrates a long moment of imagination during which the protagonist dreams of finding the strength to pursue her ambitions and conquer the woman she loves. For me, this story is a thought on all the women I could only wish for.
