Carolina Gheri was born in Fiesole in 1992.
In her academic studies, from high school onwards, she hassought a less classical approach, inclining more towards arts and creative experimentation. She enrolled at Liceo Artistico Leon Battista Alberti in Florence and, graduating in 2011, she started to attend the three-year course at the Fondazione Studio Marangoni.
Thanks to school and her own initiative, she has attended numerous workshops in order to develop and deepen her own photographic interpretation. Alongside the three-year school, she has also managed to work outside the academic world, taking part a collective and individual exhibition staged by some art’s associations in Florentine area.
At the end of april 2015 she became the assistant of Linda Connor, photographer and professor in San Francisco, and they went for over two months around Italy, Carolina organized every detail of the jorney of Linda for her photographic project.
She is fascinated of people’s stories and works on their tales and she has a passion for her pinhole camera (a box of Illy Coffee).
At the end of 2015 she moved to Milan, where she’s actually working and living.
No one knows where this story started, it might have started twenty years ago or even before.
Mario is an aged man from the Tuscany countryside, classy and proud of his past, surrounded by his family’s fondness. But he hasn’t be the same for a while, something broke in his daily routine and seems irreparable. It didn’t look like a big problem at first, Mario was just grouchier than usual, nothing to worry about. During the course of the years, however, it got worst: he became lonelier and crabbier. Maybe he was just aging, in the end he was always him. But in a moment the situation got out of hand. The excuses were not enough anymore and, during an august night, everything showed up as it really was: irremediable. Carolina doesn’t only go through the facts, she doesn’t limit herself, she analyses every point of view from the different members of Mario’s family.
Mario decided to die and no one can stop him.
A decision that apparently concerns only him, but actually affects all of his family. Everyone is getting in- volved in the process of acceptance of a decision that is not easy to understand. Incomprehension and recon- ciliation alternates, forcing the family to ponder and respect, trying to accompany Mario in his last journey.
