"Miss(es)" is a photographic project where the main characters are participants of weird and bizarre beauty contests, like Miss Over, Miss Cicciona, Miss Africa in Italy and so forth.
The final purpose of this idea is describing a concept of beauty that embodies the diverisity and the complexity typical of our society, distant from the classicism rules.
Such concept of beauty is strongly linked to our time, reflecting our social and cultural condition.
Nowadays beauty contests not only represent the aim of human beings to compete against each other, by showing their physical perfomances. they are the channel through which "in the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes " (Andy Warhol).
