Lo Sguardo Non Mente (The Eyes Never Lie) is the catalogue of a photographic project by Riccardo Ghilardi where the truth is told in 125th of a second through the eyes of Italian cinema. The book features an introduction by Marco Müller, director of the Venice Film Festival.
Actors and actress
The eyes never lie is a psychological game that tries to immortalise the instinctive truth that lies within the human eyes. The setting of this game begins with Italian cinema, actors and actresses, as well as directors and screenwriters. Those who should know best how to interpret, demonstrate, display or hide their expressions are the very ones that are put into perspective and humanised in this experiment.
Lo sguardo non mente ||The eyes never lies
With an unexpected question posed point-blank that changes with each subject, the shot becomes the instinctive response, captured in an expression. That one hundred and twenty-fifth of a second in which the eyes never lie.
