Victoria E. Paternó, a Venezuelian photographer, takes us to the Mediterranean Sea, where the azure sea and old villages inspire her. Though accustomed to fashion photoshoots, the artist does not like to define her aesthetics. “It is merely a direct response to a visual stimulation”, she says. During her trips, she develops a visual notebook – fresh and contemplative. “They are aimless images that I took just for me – this is my way of awaken to the world. A form of meditation helping me focus on what I see”, she explains. In colour and black and white, she collections euphoric moments, and the simple beauty of Southern landscapes. By the sea, the heat and sand she captures summon a holiday languor.
