Valentina Lari

photographer and filmmaker

I believe in art that has a meaning and an urge. There is always a pain, and a joy to talk about. The difficulty is to find the right and honest way for you to express it.

As a visual artist and filmmaker I am ever so grateful to many writers, film directors, musicians and painters who’s work changed my perspective on life and death. Gifted human beings that are not afraid of being controversial, explorative without being exploitative or pointlessly arrogant.

I always work with an analogue camera and I love printing my photos. When shooting film there is a feeling that the image may not come out exactly as you imagined, in fact it may not come out at all, but therein lies the challenge, the beauty of dealing with the unknown.

My images talk about decay, ghost and dreams.

And all the memories they leave behind.
