Panic attack.

Analogic photography. Double exposure. Kiev 88. Ilford HP5 400

This photographic series was made during a personal search for the expression of my discomfort.
I was never able to put into words what I felt (still feel) with my panic attacks, but one evening, after developing the film on the reel, I noticed my involuntary tale. Each of these photographs speaks of a precise moment of the panic attack, of when it begins and how it ends.
As I said before, I have a hard time expressing what I feel in words, but the pictures speak for themselves, they will have a small description of the stage of the panic attack.

Stage 1 asphyxiation or hyperventilation; I am alive but paralyzed
Stage 2 increasingly strong tachycardia; A bad feeling.
Stage 3 tremors in the arms and legs; I feel a little pain, it happens when you are broken,
Stage 4 chest tightness or discomfort; Emotionally impaired
Stage 3 fear of dying; I have no chance.

Once completed, I decided to push the concept further by making a protective body suit. In isolation, I used myself as a model. I began exploring t...

This picture represent to me a very delicate moment in a woman life: the pre-adolescence. The way Paola is looking at the camera makes me think that she is growing in self-awarness while her shy, younger sister looking at the floor reminds me of the difficulty of accepting that self....

“The feminine nature is the protagonist of Cristina Cabrita's canvases, precisely because the woman has that particular sensitivity that can guide her and lead her to observe reality through the softness of the nuances, and it is perhaps by virtue of that same sensitivity that she bends to find the...
