Matilde Soligno

'I found photographs' – Matilde Soligno. See more of her work here

Matilde, what do you do? I am a photographer

Where did you find these pictures and why did you keep them?
I found these pictures in a few different flea markets in Italy, where I live. I chose them for the sort of clashing feelings of fragility and intimacy they emanate. I keep one of them in my organizer (agenda), and the other ones are spread on my walls and shelves, so I can see them. I also included one of them in a series I shot exploring and articulating upon the imagery of found photographs: the name of the series is indeed Il Diario Ritrovato (The Finding of a Journal).
