A JE BURRNESH! by Paola Favoino


“This is a long-term project started in 2011, when I discovered the extraordinary existences of the Albanian Sworn Virgins and I started to travel through the country looking for the last ones, the so called Burrnesh. Burrnesh is a woman who become a man following an ancient balkan tradition. My subject was the Burrnesh and her community and my research had an anthropological approach. I worked with analogical camera.”

A path of intimate and dreamlike discovery, which proceeds step by step on the traces of life and memory.

A narrative made of cuts that can break the definitions and certainties, the external and intimate borders. A close comparison between landscape and portrait, where indeed the landscape can become a portrait of someone’s personality.
