Sonia Lenzi Take Me to Live with You A Social Family Album

»I’ve always loved visiting the homes of others, not so much to see how people lived their daily lives, but in order to try and understand them better, and [...] becoming part of their lives.« Sonia Lenzi is an Italian photographer and visual artist, who lives and works in Bologna and London. Her artistic practice adopts an interdisciplinary approach and revolves around interrelated themes, concerning identity, memo­ries of people and places, mortality and gender. For her latest project Take Me to Live With You, Lenzi photographed in the homes of elderly people in Italy. They serve as parental figures, who have certain cultural, political and moral values to share.
Her attempt to preserve these values for future generations, results into a kind of social fam­ily album where places, objects, images and texts related to these people are communi­cating on their behalf.
