WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The world is a busy place. We are all too occupied to stop and stare. We do this because we need to be costantly stimulated by something else, and reality is not enough to keep us entertained.
Yet, even what’s common and banal has got something that can enrich us.
How to bring out the magic of the everyday? My way is to turn a photograph in a painting. Or in a collage. Or in a double-exposure that cannot possibly exist. The work in this book aims to turn routine into a fairy tale.
Each piece is carefully crafted and hand-made. There is no digital manipulation, no technological trick. Paint is applied directly on the photograph. Images are cut and stuck on different layers. Double-exposures are created in the camera. Everything is real, now and here.
The pieces in this book have been exhibited in a few exhibitions around London. They have been entirely handmade by Bruna Martini.
The book is available English.
