Paolo Ventura- Winter Stories- Signed copy

£150.00

Product description

In Winter Stories, Paolo Ventura invents an imaginative series of photographs depicting scenes from the memories of an old circus performer as he looks back on his life, leetingly recalled glimpses of an everyday life: "images that he thought to have never seen, quick moments he unknowingly observed as he raised his eyes to the clock hung at the corner of the block."
Using his own childhood memories, beautiful miniature figures, and sophisticated sets, Ventura re-envisions a simpler time from Italy's past, but his darker vision- with its shadowy backdrops and retreating figures.
Winter Stories contains not only an engaging sequence of images from Ventura's newest body of work, but also reproduces the ink drawings and watercolours he uses as a starting point for his stories, and a handmade album of Polaroids of his works in progress.
There is also an essay by Eugenia Parry offering an insight into Ventura's background.
This copy is in immaculate condition throughout and is filled with stunning images. It is also signed making it a very desirable copy. This is an oversize book.
