14 imagesParadiso is a series of twenty tintypes. The tintype is a nineteenth century photographic technique which creates a direct positive and, therefore, a unique and unrepeatable image whose central axis is the closeness and the mundane. Tintypes can be portraits and landscapes, sometimes unheard of, which make us feel the passing of time. They are presented inside a light box, recalling the simplicity and the strength of a haiku where the presence of nature, the exaltation of the instant and the objective capture of an experience take shape. The small size of the image creates an intimate and close dialogue with the spectator in a visual language exploited to its limits.
