Martina Della Valle
POST-IT is a series of photographs by Martina Della Valle that reproduce the pages of a famous book on contemporary photography. Accidentally found on a bus, the book is “censored”. A mysterious author has intervened by covering with yellow post-it notes all the naked bodies reproduced in the images of the most famous contemporary female photographers. The trace of the meticulous work of an unknown reader generates a reflection on the subjective interpretation of the image.
