Fantastical and elaborate dioramas created and photographed by Italian artist Paolo Ventura
Here, Milan-based photographer, artist and set designer Paolo Ventura (born 1968) creates elaborate dioramas using cardboard and found objects from flea markets and eBay, which he photographs as if life-size. Ventura’s so-called “invented worlds” or “ir-realities” reference World War II and stories by his father, a children’s book author.
