Photographer’s Unconventional Self-Portraits Highlight Intriguing Architecture in Urban Spaces

In her ‘Urban Self-Portrait’ series, Anna di Prospero photographs herself against the backdrop of towering, irregular architectural forms in the middle of sprawling cities.

Stretching out on the ground, twisting her body into emotive contortions, or caught in startling states of undress, the Italian photographer appears as the star of unconventional self-portraits that border on the surreal.

Stark and eerily devoid of people, except for di Prospero herself, the images transform everyday urban spaces into slices of a sci-fi-esque metropolis fit for the wanderings of a solitary woman.

The Roman-born photographer told Fotografia Magazine, “I think self-portraits are a good way to examine yourself and your relationships with others. A self-portrait forces you to make questions about who you are and admit things to yourself.”
