Aboutcontacts is a series of photographic works, which explore human interaction and communication. A pictorial journey, documenting with total candour people's daily lives and the contact they experience with others. In this work the artist endeavours to explore the fundamentals of life such as faith, love and friendship.
Each piece comprises a series of personal stories, which become interwoven through location and circumstance. The artist uses the contact sheet to frame them within a clear-cut, linear narrative, expanding and embellishing on the informal, content-driven aesthetic of the snapshot. De Rosa helps us to decipher these stories with the inclusion of inanimate objects, giving us the context and allowing us to develop our interpretations. We deduce their meaning by observing the way that people communicate and connect with each other through body language and their facial expressions. Studying the different behaviours towards strangers and friends, by observing other people and their lives and comparing them to ourselves, we are able to understand our own lives and make sense of the world around us.
