These fine art portraits by Adolfo Valente are masterfully rendered.

Using a canon, Valente has perfected the art of portraiture. His compositions incorporate the classical ideology of capturing characteristics and personality within a hazy aesthetic, a technique popular with many hipsters. His use of lighting and textures is spectacular. In one shot, Valente directs a model with pixie-length blonde hair. The model’s coif is subtly mirrored by the grassy scene, and her sharp gaze is heightened with the use of back lighting.

Adolfo Valente takes his influence from national beauty and spirit; the artist communicates the tragic romance that mysteriously floats through the streets of Italy.
