Body Language. Italian Summer

This project is a spin-off of the worldwide known Italian Summer project. While Italian Summer is an environmental description of how Italians enjoy holidays this is more focused on the naked bodies and how they “speak”  in a hot and somehow extreme environment.I took these pictures in different places around Italy—like the island of Salina in Sicily, Salento in Puglia, and Forte dei Marmi in Tuscany. I looked at people of all ages and social stations hoping to find that one common thread of surreal irony.
