The Woman Who Never Existed was inspired by the words of the pioneering Italian actress Eleonora Duse. Eleonora worked the international theatre stage along side Sara Bernhardt in the early 20th century. In contrast to Bernhardt’s outgoing personality, Duse was introverted and private, rarely giving interviews. She once famously told a pushy New York journalist, that ‘away from the stage I do not exist.’
The Woman Who Never Existed tells the story of a fictional character visualized after reading Eleonora’s words, an actress who only exists in front of an audience, when no one is looking she starts to disappear.
THE WOMAN WHO NEVER EXISTED will launch at PhotoFairs San Francisco, 27-29 January 2017.
