Ran, an Israeli artist, known during the Venice Biennale on the occasion of the Singularity exhibition at the Decentral Art Pavillon where he exhibited.
First among the international artists who posed for me. Film maker, video artist, visual designer, sound composer, Ran encompasses all of this in one person. He is a multifaceted artist who does not go unnoticed.
The first impression I got was that he was reserved, shy, unapproachable.
Despite everything, I decided to go and meet him, introduce myself and the project. It was enough to talk for 30 minutes to discover his works.
His most recent project Insomniac City, in which the mix between reality and illusion of urban life, between images and sounds that tell a nocturnal scenario with a noir matrix, was the source from which I drew inspiration. I had only that afternoon to find the scenery adapted to his art and his person.
I wouldn't have seen him again the next day, I would have missed that one chance. I then thought of visiting each floor of the building that housed the exhibition and, as I took the lift, the neon light that enveloped me illuminated me from every point of view: I had found the set.
Ran already knew how to pose, she had grasped the way I wanted to portray him, as if he were inside that sleepless city that he describes in his work.

Sara has been dedicating herself to photography and photographic calligraphy since 2006. She matured the artistic matrix from her father, musician and composer, who led her to explore not only the world of theater, to which she dedicated herself for several years both as an interpreter as a stage photographer, but also of music, studying classical music theory and playing bass for several years, as well as cinema, influenced by the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia where her father worked as a sound engineer.
In addition to the various courses on photographic techniques and workshops dedicated to travel reportage, he attended the training promoted by the MoMA on photography as a means of individual artistic expression, as a technique for exploring and documenting the reality as well as a tool for communication and criticism of society and our culture. Subsequently, driven by an interest in history that draws on photojournalism as a primary source, she followed the course on the use of images, films and their historical interpretation in the 20th century with the University of London & Royal Holloway.
Among the activities followed, Sara has curated various photographic backstage works, the last of these at the Macro Museum in Rome. After having increased her knowledge, she has also matured her style thanks to the continuous and daily training of the artist Alessandro Bavari.
United by photography as an expression of art, as well as by their personal bond, together they created the book Kill the Covid! a rural horror photographic mockumentary set in Italy, faithful to their artistic, visionary and provocative style.
The photographic choice oriented towards Reportage and Street Photography, features strictly black and white calligraphy. Inspired by the language of the Hungarian director Béla Tarr, Sara Aliscioni offers images made of symbolism, drama and poetry in an objective but at the same time sentimental interpretation, describing the harsh reality that sees man at its center in familiar and everyday contexts. The common thread is always the search for beauty even when what surrounds the subject is decadent, dark and forgotten.
