Designer Creates Striking, Colorful Life-Size Sets Handmade Entirely From Paper
By Yoon Sann Wong, 29 Jun 2015
Italian artist Adriana Napolitano first began constructing sets for stop motion videos.
After her photographer husband Paolo Lafratta began teaching her about his craft and lighting, Napolitano conjured the idea of creating a portrait series featuring intricate props and costumes, but made entirely out of paper.
The extravagant crafts seen in her photos were made using simple preschool materials. Napolitano said on DIY Photography, “I create my sets with a lot of patience and a lot of Band-Aids and make everything stay in place with tape and prayers.”
“Mostly everything is captured in-camera. I use Photoshop for color correction and maybe to fix some [minor stuff], but everything is giant and real,” explained Napolitano.
She also left some encouraging advice to aspiring photographers, “…I would say that I’m an aspiring photographer myself and that the important thing is never stop being an ‘aspiring-something’.”
