After growing up near Naples, Laurent Fiorentino moved to Switzerland where, in 2020, he obtained his Bachelor’s degree in photography at the Ecal. Today he lives and works in Lausanne. His artistic practice combines photography and sculpture.
As a photographer he blurs the border between the living and the image, making the everyday space for creation. The organic, the desire, and the quest for identity and intimacy are the engines of research impregnated with lyricism. The image is presented as a votive act, an apocryphal, and a personal ritual. It is the acceptance and reverence of the precious vulnerability that structures the intimate. The vulnerable is shown as a quiet demonstration of an alternative to the virile prototype. It is not a frontal political act but a discreet affirmation of the right to be dissident, personal, and preciously fragile.
