'Fil Rouge' or "red thread" is a surreal photo series by Giuseppe Manzi that features several women in abstract outdoor settings, lost in thought. Placing them in a the wilderness helps us identify with fairy tales and fantasy stories. The woods are often the main location where magical things happen and these women seem to be lost in the wanderings of their minds.

The photographer chose to blur some of their movements and overlap them, giving them a spiritual look.He also chose to give them vibrant clothing so they stand out like fairies in the woods. One image stands out as a piece for reflection: a woman stands in a pond with a fishbowl in her hand. She looks off into the distance and it seems as if she's pondering whether to set it free or not.

Each image has an emotive aspect to it and encourages introspection. It's true when they say "a picture speaks a thousand words" because 'Fil Rouge' certainly encourages reflection and the search for meaning and understanding.
