From the “Working Journal” – a photographic and handwritten documentary of the jobs, professions and endeavors that shape our connectivity to the people and  the world around us-Chiara De Caroli, actress, New York City. “I call myself ‘ a girl from the island in New York’ because that is who I am. I was born in Sicily, a  magic island in the heart of the Mediterranean sea at the bottom of a volcano. I crossed the ocean and that is my song, that is my legacy, that is what I am made of. Sea, salty rocks and fire. Acting forces you to strip yourself  from all the things you use to shield yourself from what You fear, and  to be unmercifully honest.  New York is a place where you can find people from literally all around the world. I dream to see this community growing and fighting here together, serving as a crossroad of intercultural exchange, especially in days like these, where  hatred and fear are tearing us apart. It’s more important now than ever to stay strong and stay together as artists, people, immigrants, males, females and ultimately human beings in the name of justice.”
