The photographs of 25-year-old Matteo Palmieri evoke an intensely raw emotion that is incredibly moving which can be attributed to a number of factors. The first is the lighting which sets the mood in a way that is consistent with the subject’s body position and facial expressions. The second element that makes these photos so raw is that Palmieri has moved away from the world of digital photography and shoots only with an old analog camera.

The veil of melancholy that ties each of the photos in his portfolio together is both powerful and meaningful to viewers. The Italian photographer captures beauty in sadness through his feminine subjects in a way that is not often seen in modern photography.

Implications - For art appreciators, the element that is most important in a work of art is the portrayal of raw emotion. Consumers look to the vision of artists to define and articulate certain feelings that are otherwise difficult to understand. Art that connects to the audience at the most personal level is generally the most interesting. Stats for Sullen Bedroom Photography Trending: Older & Popular
