Vanna Truffelli

The image as a sentiment of truth and taste

Saturday July 16 2016
only between 5:30 and 7:30 PM


I started to shoot photographs when I was twenty with a reflex camera which I used for only a short time: it was too heavy to carry hanging on the neck. A smart photographer exchanged it with a fixed focus Nikon FE. I still use this one, alternating it with a digital Nikon. As soon as I shall have repaired it, I intend to start using another antique, a Zeiss Ikon.
A thin line of light penetrates in my house, the rainbow leaves its trail in the courtyard: I am fascinated by light – to photograph is to allow myself to be absorbed by the immediate image. To take photos is a need, it is the expression of rage, of strength, of joy, of the beauty I seek. It is the search of the idea, of the sound I have inside. It's the expression of the sentiment of honesty, of truth; it is searching inside oneself something to give, that sometimes happens in an instant, in a flash.

Vanna Truffelli was born in 1946 in Mantova where she now lives. She is known in the city for her taste, for her special skills in interior decoration, for her generosity in welcoming people, in setting up sites, in helping those in need. She has collaborated at MAT/tam since its inception. This is her very first photography exhibition and MAT/tam is honored to be the sponsor of it. Indeed, Annarosa Buttarelli and Lucio Pozzi want to support those who are involved in an intense artistic research, the priority of which is not public ambition.

We hope that after this exhibiton others will respond to and sustain Vanna Truffelli's passionate research.
