Venturing into the world of photography casually and self-taught, Valeria Ciardulli captures her surroundings by observing with curious eyes, paying attention to details, and adding a touch of irony without ever neglecting the communicative aspect. Communication, her profession for over 20 years in the field of art direction, is indeed one of the cornerstones of Ciardulli’s work.
Segnali (in english, signals) is a photographic project that uses the language of the body as a medium, conveying an immediate message to those who view the shots in this series. The photographs capture emotions, offering observers the opportunity to interact and relate to the images on a personal level, based on their own experiences.
Friendship, support, fragility, fear, and strength are fundamental aspects of Signals, which also encompasses themes such as fear, desire, and hope. Valeria Ciardulli takes care of every detail, leaving nothing to chance, and her strength lies in minimal compositions, light, and colors that, combined with the predominant body expression, have contributed to conveying her message more powerfully.
