Student's comment

Strongly attracted to cinematography in documentaries, I did the photography for Olivia Calcaterra’s short documentary film for her degree. 

Having gone in search of stray, abandoned Spanish greyhounds in Almeria, Spain, Calcaterra decided to deal with the theme of abandonment through a documentary focusing on the introspection of the emotions linked to this trauma. Inspired by Leopardi’s poem on resilience, she sought to bring together human and canine feelings in the experience of being abandoned by someone.
