Handbound Photobook

At first, only a few people trusted in the power of the mud, but then several more began to bathe in it. They started to believe in the land, soil, and ground; they wanted to bury themselves in it.

Terra is a photobook that builds the narrative of individuals who crave immersion into the land and offer themselves to the mud ritualistically. The work was sequenced, bound with an embossed cover, and printed in Rome, Italy. This series of images was inspired by two men standing in Lago Albano, coating themselves in mud- then, others followed.
