Dive deep into the eyes of Valentina Vortice, whose truly unique lens captures a familiar and raw emotion that tears at the heartstrings. The high contrast monochromatic captures tell a series of diverse stories that may differ to each individual viewer. These stories stem from the immediate chemistry that the Italian photographer establishes with each of her subjects and settings that makes it easy to build an instant connection with each shot.

Though there is little information available about Vortice on the Internet, it is clear that she holds incredible promise as a photographer as her portrait work sharply breaks through superficial boundaries. Her work post-production is also notable. Though she does not over edit, the contrast shading makes her subjects stand out to the easily blinded naked eye.
