Valentin Russo: “I’m interested in relationship between photography and painting. I notice that one essential difference between these is time: Photographs are created usually in fractions of seconds whereas paintings take much more time. Therefore, I tried to experiment by slowing down the process of taking a photo to the maximum. I don’t use a tripod so that my hand movements act on the photo, like a painter acts on his painting.
In this approach, I try to reclaim physical photography, seen as an automatic process, and to offer another vision than the photographic objective truth.
In that concern, I was inspired by the works of Ernst Haas “Motion”, and John Batho particularly the bright colour and movement in "Maneges" (Merry-go-round) series. I was also inspired by the paintings of Gerhard Richter, the futurism paintings and the colors theory of Kandinsky.
In the long exposure time, I like the randomness, blending shapes and colors and blurred vision between real and fiction. I enjoy abstracting every day scenes, something which the camera, which usually distorts objects in movement, is particularly suited for.
White is very present in my composition. It reminds the white canvas and emphasizes on colors which appear like touches of paint, removing the limits between painting and photography.”
