Destination / Wish You Were Here

Mattea Perrotta in Cuba

“I use it as a way to document things I see that I find beautiful: colours, textures, lines, shapes … anything really.
There’s a romanticism that a film camera has over a digital, it’s much more tangible.”

In her work as a painter, Mattea Perrotta has a knack for combining culture, history and the delicate nuances of femininity to create a raw and nostalgic beauty. On tour in Cuba with a roll of 35mm film and friend and model Kate Parfet as her subject, she captured nothing less. These are her memories behind those moments in a place that transcends time.
