Persephone

"Persephone is the daughter of Demeter and Zeus, as well as wife of Hades. The myth of her abduction represents her function as the personification of vegetation, which comes up in the spring and retires to the earth after the harvest. She is also known by the names Kore, Cora or Proserpina. The pomegranate is the fruit whose seeds have tied her to the underworld, but it is also a symbol of fertility. "

Almost four months ago began the idea of creating a project that was a bit special, that had a common thread that would link multiple shooting, and that would push me as much as possible.

It took me a while, but these two are the photos with which I would like to open this crazy project that probably will take me years to be completed, but I'm very happy to have started! 😁

If you want to support me in this project, you can find prints in my small shop
