With a vibrant pop art aesthetic, Italian photographer Maurizio Di Iorio imbues everyday objects with a sense of whimsy and surprise. Profoundly influenced by the legendary William Eggleston, the artist saturates his carefully constructed studio compositions with rich yellows, blues, and reds. His sharp eye for detail allows him to maintain a truly democratic gaze; regardless of his subject matter, he creates an engaging visual narrative.
For Thirty-Five and One: The Short Days and the Long, photographer and photo editor Rachel Hulin joins her daughter Rose in moments of repose and discovery. As the infant navigates the homes of both the photographer and the two grandmothers, she explores the mother herself, climbing atop her nude body and reaching out for her touch. For the child, each instant is aglow with revelation and novelty, yet for Hulin, each interaction is piercingly precious. Rose’s days are long and sprawling, her mother’s brief and fleeting.
