Works for a cosmic feeling

Works for a cosmic feeling is a collection of photographic works shot with a film large format camera that employing the tools of science and philosophy explores what Romain Rolland (in a 1927 letter to Sigmund Freud) called “an oceanic feeling” - referring to the sensation of being at one with the universe.

Collateral Histories, with Giovanna Petrocchi

Giulia Parlato’s practice focuses on staged photography, and revolves around history, myths, and objecthood.

The Drone Chronicles 2001-2016, published by éditions CPG & Spector Books, 2019

Why are drones — or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) — so present in our daily news feed and local retail stores, but do we — despite sky-high sales numbers — hardly see them fly in our public airspace? This paradox of invisible presence lies at the basis of The Drone Chronicles, an editorial diptych that maps the evolution and integration of drones in our society
