about this piece
Amandine Nabarra-Piomelli: “The photographs in this tunnel book were shot in Italy and Switzerland. There are tons of tunnels through the mountains. The outside stories were shot in Switzerland and Paris. The inside of the tunnels are in warm tones because it represents a metaphor of how we go through life and eventually it comes together with the man and child holding hands at the end of the tunnel. The outside stories, in cold tones, are about looking for something, someone, searching (for balance, ourselves, etc…), the stressful part of life.”
Amandine Nabarra-Piomelli photographs personal stories She is interested in identity problems facing her friends or unknown persons she has read about. Her visual journeys combine poetic and documentary sensibilities, each image is a story that crosses other destinies in one series. People, places and objects are connecting in unexpected ways to create a tell that can be read as fragments or in their entity.
