Giada Maestra is a freelance illustrator based in London.

is an attempt to grasp something in a multitude of ordinary elements
a way to make sense of the foolish
a search for oneself in others

All the images have been collected directly on site, from February 2021, in North London.

Like the Flâneuse, I moved in the contradictory beauty of my city and of its inhabitants.
I have observed, followed and remembered them, making their stories part of my everyday.
I didn’t know exactly what I was looking for until I found myself in those strangers.
