“Temporary residencies” is a series of photographs inspired by the ephemeral homes where I stayed during my journeys. Homes that can be hotel rooms, airbnb’s, friends’ house all can be temporary shelters which offer the possibility for daydreaming. Spaces that look familiar and at the same time uncanny, objects and corners at these houses that will be used just for a few times, spaces that will serve as shelters. The temporariness of those inhabits creates also the desire for memorizing them. It is like to enlarge those moments and to make them important. The photographs were shot during travels that I made with my friend since 2016.
