The Hyères Festival 2014 photography winner is Lorenzo Vitturi with the selection of works from the photo project called “Dalston Anatomy” inspired by the multiethnic market of Dalston (East – London). A riot of colours, words,voices and mantras, shouted and repeated, find their home, each in its own exact position, coming together, creating a multiform, multi-sensorial micro universe.The book is edited by colour and intuition, and is a wonderful tactile experience, delineating a specific time and place, and conveying that recognizable London vibe. Juxtaposing abstract portraits with handmade sculptures makes for some beautiful combinations.” Dalston Anatomy ” was published in only 700 copies and since its debut it was highly acclaimed by the international photography community,even the Times has included it among the most significant books of 2013.
Italian born and London-based, after graduating in photography and design at IED in Rome, Vitturi has been on a two years residency at Fabrica, the Benetton centre for research in communication .
