You have no more lungs, no more heart nor brain. Imagine you are death, a corpse, and yet you are not.
Photographer Fabio Bozzetti explores the complexity of the rare mental illness known as Cotard Syndrome in an editorial that glamorously deal with denial of self-existence. Inside a warehouse resembling an industrial morgue, Liza Fizz plays the patient cought up in stiff poses, her eyes lost in the void, wrapped in plastic film with crazy expressions on her doll-like face. Stylist Greta Fumagalli emphasizes the reality shift with eccentric outfits embellished with opulent accessories that give to the character a sophisticated, upper class-like appeal. The gritty effects achieved through anlog photography give to the images an authentic feeling, like if they wear a reportage on an old Hollywood diva suddenly got insane.
