Artwork Details

"Suite morandienne" is a project started in 2022 and realized using mainly a Polaroid camera on 600 film.
The photographs are an homage to Morandi's atelier, a place often immortalized by great masters of the 20th century. The idea of this series of fifty Polaroids is to create an imaginary, nonexistent place, reinterpreting my relationship with the painter according to my vision. Through the use of photography, manipulating the images in a painterly way and then returning to photography, I create a cycle in which the image is enlarged and generates a new composition.
In the creative process of "Suite morandienne," I work through syncretisms to arrive at the final image. I use a combination of analog and digital media, experimenting with different manipulations and transformations of the image. The final image may be on a different medium than the initial photographic shot, which may be atypical for traditional photography, considering there Polaroid 600 as a negative. This process of exploration and experimentation allows me to transform and reinvent the original image in a unique way. "
