Be the bee body be boom, est west.

What Sara Munari seeks are fleeting moments that manifest first in her mind and then in the photographs she makes on the street. She does not try to document, does not care, and is not objective.
She rejects what is real. Everything happens first within her, and the people she meets embody her idea of fleetingness.
Often the existence of something unusual is rejected, but it thrives in the human imagination. Things creep in from other possible worlds, fill us with cold splashes, and our understanding adapts to receive them. She is constantly waiting for this splash to awaken her because she perceives reality as less important than imagination, too definite and definitive. A kind of counterpoint, a whisper overpowered by the main voice, a background buzz she tries to connect with.
