Monia, the sister of photographer Giovanni Cocco, lies in bed in Sulmona, Italy, in 2006. She suffered a traumatic brain injury at birth.
"I used to share my bedroom with Monia for many years," Cocco said. "She often woke up in the middle of the night, gesticulating, pointing up with her fingers, as she meant to say something. I've always been looking at her since I was a kid, trying to catch what she does."
Cocco's mother has taken care of Monia for 46 years. "I always saw my mother as a woman that couldn't choose her life, and who had to sacrifice it to her love for a disabled daughter," Cocco said.
Cocco presents Monia in an all-encompassing light, showing his sister within her defined visual space while also seeking to understand the unseeable -- her inner thoughts.
