Nature elegantly connected in quiet solitude moments is documented through the ocean, desert and glacier peacefulness. The viewer experience the meditation enhanced by the sense of timeless and the enchanting atmosphere.
Snow and ice dominate the landscape. The surreal arctic life of scientists and coal workers leave sporadic traces of their existence.
The series freezes the memory of silent moments in extreme northern lands , where human harsh existence is.
These photos were taken in the Svalbard Archipelago , remote areas where people often live in isolation and in close contact with nature.
AUTHOR: Nicoletta Cerasomma ITALY
Nicoletta Cerasomma is a photographer and pop surrealist artist with a background in staged photography. After studying photography since 1997, she realized her love for storytelling so, in the latest years, she had evolved from fashion photographer to independent artist focused on production of nuanced photographic tableaux.
Her work is highly conceptual and complex: as surrealist artist, she incorporates archetypes and cultural iconography with satirical narratives inspired by the collective unconscious. Leaning into the visual language of pop surrealism, she stages narrative compositions that expose the underbelly of modern life.
Nicoletta is inspired by the dichotomy Beauty and Decay, themes that she loves to incorporate into her works in order to evoke contemplation and debate on human condition, through a vivid and provocative still imagery and a cinematic technique.
Her images come from personal place of exploration where she dreams to live a thousand lives in one.
She is most known for her series "Cryptic Venus", created in 2020, which depicts women placed in suggestive scenarios.
Nicoletta was awarded the Sony world photography organization, the Pollux Awards and many other grants in 2020. Her work was exhibited in Paris, Moscow, Budapest, Barcelona and continues to show in international galleries. She is currently working on new dyptich projects.
