Artist and photographer Lorenzo Vitturi has just released his latest publication, Dalston Anatomy, telling stories derived from one of London’s most vibrant scenes, Dalston’s Ridley Road Market. Situated in the heart of Hackney, the market, widely known for its traditional barrows, fresh veg, fruits, beautiful plants and street food, is where Vitturi spent a lot of time capturing people’s moods, taking pictures, making sculptures and creating collages from found materials he picked up amongst the debris in the market.
Bound in Vlisco fabrics in bright patterns are the photographic documentation, the result of his experiments on a number of objects and materials which most people consider useless. He used mixed mediums to study each object, either organic or inorganic, and see how each of them transforms and decays.
The publication, published by Self Publish, Be Happy, was first released in October 2013, only 700 copies, all signed and numbered. The new edition will be available for purchase in spring 2014.
Born in Venice, Lorenzo Vitturi now lives and works between London and Milan. The publication was also displayed in his solo exhibition at Foam Museum in Amsterdam.
