Non-profit project: "VISIONI. Surreal stories."
2014 September, 01
August. "Paoulette la petite bête"
By Lorenzo Scaldaferro.
“Paulette la petite bête is a fantastic creature, dreamlike, impossible.
She leans forward, staring, ready to capture the viewer.
The world around observes her suspended, waiting for the shoot."
This is August of Visions, the calendar for the IOV promoted by Paoul, interpreted by Lorenzo Scaldaferro and the artist Anna Piratti. They have already worked together in projects like DAP (Discorsi Alla Pari) by Anna, in contexts like Venice Jazz Festival and NEAR – the European Night of the Researchers. Anna's artistic vision and the creativity have surely known how to enrich the shot of Lorenzo.

Lorenzo Scaldaferro: Born in Vicenza, he got a degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Padua. Three years later he began working as a photographer, working first in journalism and collaborating with Phocus Agency (becoming later one of the associates) and producing in the meantime his first commercial works.

Among his clients there are brands like Wrangler, Valentino Fashion Group, Nice Group, Paoul, Momo Design, JDO, Dermaplus. He has never abandoned the idea of a picture that is not only pure image, but also a cultural and social issue. He wrote and directed with the support of Canon Italy the short film Stoned Melodious, a work focused on the issue of autism, presented at Fotografica, and the winner of the national award for creativity at So.Docu Film Festival. Pursuing his passion for the image stated in different social aspects he also produced a calendar for Bakhita House from Vicenza, a homeless shelter. He teaches at the International School of Comics and organizes workshops in different international areas of interest such as Rototom Sunsplash. He worked on his own or with other artists on projects related to South America (La Paz del Agua, Nuevo Inca) and also on projects related to music photography. He founded together with the journalist Riccardo Bastianello and the video maker Diego Nicoletti the production house Varédo. www.looo.it
