PAOLO VENTURA
photographer

In the early '90s, Paolo Ventura immediately left the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan to pursue his interest in photography. After having gained some experience, in the subsequent ten years, as fashion, design and landscape photographer, he decided to move to New York. After having left commercial photography for good, in a small studio in Brooklyn he began to build dioramas inspired by the Second World War in Italy, based on memories and stories told by his maternal grandmother. In 2006, he published the greatly successful "War Souvenir" and many exhibitions all over the world ensued.
