Anabella Sarriasphotographs are open windows on a world that is gradually moving away from reality. Her work captures the harshness of existence in a society that, inexorably, mechanizes and domesticates itself, thus losing contact with the real world. In his images, the alienated man emerges as a figure resembling a robotic, mass-produced machine with no thoughts or feelings of his own. Sarrias emphasizes isolation, loneliness and the repetition of almost identical daily routines, conditions that are increasingly prevalent in today’s society and contribute to the loss of a sensitive and creative humanity in favor of a mechanization of thoughts and actions.

Anabella Sarrias’ photographs are visual narratives that capture the essence of humanity in the contemporary era of digitization, telling the story of the struggle to maintain one’s identity. Her skill as a storyteller, also dictated by her experience as a theater director and actress, is evident, which is particularly evident in the cinematic shots, as if the shots were frames from a scene in a movie. Everything is emphasized by the absent looks of the subjects or the total absence of their faces, often covered by folders or computers, emphasizing the continuous sacrifice of man in favor of mechanized conformity.

Anabella Sarrias’ works will be exhibited at the Liquida Photofestival in Turin from May 2 to 5, 2024.
