Vintage photography exhibition in London

Postby le dame art gallery » Wed Sep 02, 2015 5:22 pm

Le Dame Art Gallery at Meliá White House presents the new exhibition LB No.5 by Lichena Bertinato. The exhibition is displayed from the 1st of September and runs for one month in the VIP Level Lounge of the hotel.

More like a movie director than a photographer, Bertinato uses a cast of models/actors and a crew of assistants to stage her pictures. Bertinato’s influences came mostly from the cinema of the past, namely film noir and movies by Alfred Hitchcock. Her approach to photography relates to the cinema industry, as she stages all her pictures.

LB no.5 puts together the best of Lichena Bertinato’s Vintage mood project. The project, started in 2013, is a revocation of past eras such as the 30s (Gigi’s firends), 40s (Next stop) and 50s (Riding in the 50s and Wedding Preparations). In this body of work Bertinato has used historical locations in her native village Valdagno, in the Venetian countryside of Italy, combined with period costumes to create suggestive scenarios for imagining her stories tied between realism and fantasy.
