Greta Valente was born in Aosta in 1996. In 2015 she moved to Milan to pursue a creative career, studying Photography and Visual Arts at the European Institute of Design. She graduated in 2018 with her first publication “Memories of Volatile Spaces”, curated by the art critique and photography historian Angela Madesani.
Greta’s creative vision focuses on the dialogue between the landscape and still life, which she brings to the viewer through photography. She is currently based in Milan, however, the photographic research brings her often to the Alps.
About ‘Tell us of Pain’ – words by Greta Valente:
“Tell us of pain” is a project developed in Naples. It is a journey. An awareness of a human that walks asleep, reading The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran and searching for its own awakening.
In these lines and in these colors I understood and made peace with the pain: the breaking of the shell that encloses our understanding. Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so we must know pain.
