The photo series titled Alienation by Graziano Panfili takes ordinary people and turns them into adventurous astronauts. Of course, this transformation only involves a change of clothing rather than intense training. Captured in their natural surroundings, these newly appointed 'astronauts' symbolize the commonly held desire to be doing something different. As the Italian photographer quotes on his website, his concept is based on the idea that "…everyone has his small rocket, propelled in the blue of the outer space
with fragments of himself inside…."
People often lead dual lives, which Alienation by Graziano Panfili hones in on. During the day they go to their full time jobs while at night they focus on hobbies. For instance, Panfili points out bartenders who write stories and more.
