This book presents a selection of works from Valentina Loffredo’s first and ongoing series “As for me, I’m very little”. The photography plays on the tension between perfectly staged sets, composed through the use of geometry, blocks of colors and negative space and the constant, often ironic, presence of a little detail out of place. Through witty allusions, playful compositions and whimsical props, familiar elements take on different shapes, evolve and engage in a conversation about possibility. Fun, quirky and full of intrigue, Valentina Loffredo’s work is wonderful to study and a great accompaniment to any art book collection.
