Alessandra Santarelli is a half Italian half American photographer based in Rome. She specializes in portraiture.. The images in this exhibition focus on children, as well as their extraordinary bond to their parents, both mothers and fathers. Entering the world of children, identifying with their games and play and respecting their timing, is the way these moments were captured, always different and sometimes surprising.
