Photographer Giulia Bersani tells the intimate story of a woman she met on Facebook through her latest series 'Stronger.'

We all use Facebook as a means of keeping in touch with old friends and colleagues (and by "keeping in touch" I mean "stalking their lives"). But what about using Facebook as a mode for meeting new, interesting people? Looking for an enagaging story to tell through her work, Bersani put out a call for a photographic subject on her Facebook page. A woman from Napoli replied, describing her life as both "beautiful and damned." Intrigued, Bersani traveled to Napoli to meet Glada, a mother to a ten-year-old girl with a heavy, difficult past of drugs and family problems.

Bersani breaks the barrier of "stranger" to "friend" in order to tell Glada's story through her beautiful, saturated images.
