Sweet Nothings

Vanessa Winship is a British photographer, but has lived and worked in the Balkans and in Turkey for almost a decade. In her images, focusing fiction and reality, touching on concepts such as borders, land, memory, identity and history. With the series "Sweet Nothings" won the World Press Photo 2008 - portraits. A (category) constant image that has always affected was that of the school in their blue outfits, the same in each capital city or village. "I touched the seriousness of their behavior at that precise moment in front of the camera, their fragility, simplicity, grace and closeness to others", says Winship, "but above all their complete lack of attitude." The girls of Vanessa Winship are on the border, not only in a geographical sense: the boundary of the possibility (or improbable, perhaps). The boundary of a world that could change, could give them one more chance (however remote). Looking at the faces of some of them, one can not but think of how many worlds "parallels" exist and how important it is where we grow.
