Athletic tension is underscored by the continuous superimposition of imaginary lines and planes that cross each other. Unfolding before the lens is a rhythmic series of bodies in motion, but their identity remains hidden. Being a cheerleader means being part of a team and there is no room for any form of individualism. The presence of complementary colours further emphasizes the girls’ young bodies, accentuating the chromatic intensity of this shot.
An emerging young photographer, Linda Ferrari embarked on her career at an early age and started out as a producer in the field of advertising. Long part of the artistic scene with her projects, she has received important recognition, beginning with the photographic study accompanying the book Witness of Stone. Monumenti e architetture della Bulgaria rossa 1944-1989. In 2012 she participated in Photoberlin, a project designed to illustrate the city, in the company of master photographers like Monika Bulaj, Stefano De Luigi, Jocelyn Bain Hogg and James Whitlow Delano.
Ferrari continues to experiment and her research never stops: her profound knowledge of photography and solid preparation as a freelance artist have earned her the position of “image researcher” for Cosmopolitan Italia. Important periodicals such as Corriere della Sera, Riders and Wired have published her intense reportages, and Ferrari herself was featured in a detailed interview devoted to her by Doppiozero.
