Sofia Uslenghi was born in 1985 in Reggio Calabria, Italy.
She has been into photography research for fifteen years, focusing primarely on self-portraits. The representation of one's image is the result of a long and complex process which passes through a phase where the photographer's eye is not immediately recognizable before getting to the complete and declared self-representation.
The subject wants to be present and subtract itself from its own meaning at the same time. However, for its basic referential property, it manages to build not only what it states but also what it denies. The search for satisfaction under the impulse of the principle of pleasure is marked by a process of disintegration, movement, overlapping, deformation, union of contraries, denial and objective reality.
In the trespassed order of the representation it is not the unconscious that makes itself visible, but the dynamics of desire which want to make it transparent.
