Lorenzo Vitturi is a photographer and sculptor living and working between London and Milan. Formerly a cinema set painter, Vitturi has brought this experience into his photographic practice, which revolves around playful site-specific interventions at the intersection of photography, sculpture and performance.
Lorenzo Vitturi’s Dalston Anatomy is vibrantly riotous and full of inventive bravado. Using London’s Ridley Road Market as a studio, Vitturi shot and constructed all of the images from material found in the bustling and culturally diverse bazaar. Precarious and humorous assemblages of fruit and vegetables are paired with images of found signage, canopied stalls, and portraits of the market’s inhabitants. Afros, bold patterns, and brightly coloured fruit dominate. Straight portraits are also mixed with re-photographed portraits overlaid with coloured chalk, beads and fruit.
