Couchsurfing was born in 2004, from an idea of five young guys in San Francisco.
From then on, the community has been growing up in a constant development and it now counts12 million of people from 200'000 di erent cities. e idea is simple and connects people through travel experience, you can know new places and people by being a traveller or hosting them.
It was in 2012 that Carolina approached the Couch community and became fascinated by it: it opened her a whole new world.
Two years later she used her experience as a user to develop some images. She didn't move from her hometown, but over the course of a year she host- ed more than 30 people from all around the world. Carolina tells her journey through the portraits of her guests and some still lifes of souvenirs that they give her as presents or just as memories of their experience together. We have Soila the environmentalist, Fede, the Argentinian supporter of Fiorentina (Florence soccer team) and Ally, who’s just adorable. Each person brings a story with, summarized in an anecdote which com- pletes the dyptich of portrait and object.
