Silent and mysterious, draped in an unapproachable silence and beauty, each of Luca Bortolato’s image seems to tell a story.

A story that can’t be read accurately nor clearly defined.

The women shown in the pictures appear vulnerable and strong at the same time, yet are still shy and withdrawn, without hiding themselves completely. Dreamy, fairytale like and gentle, Bortolato designs his images in an almost minimalistic way.

Some seem to tell of a long journey, others wrap the viewer in a moment of silence in which everything else around him fades into the background.

Luca Bortolato has been fascinated by the power of certain pictures from an early age on.

He says that a small part of him lives in and through every one of his pictures.
