My name is Giulia Valente, I live in Italy and I’m a portrait photographer.

I mostly take my inspiration from the Italian and Flemish painters of XV and XVI centuries.

I have always seen photography as painting’s “younger sister”, and here in Europe we have a huge, precious treasure of amazing artists to look at.

My projects often focus on the Victorian Era, I see it as a mesmerizing time, where magic meets costume and fashion. I love recreating the mysterious atmospheres of the XIV century, and let the viewer dwell on the image’s details, objects, symbols.

I’m a big fan of cinema, in particular 1930s-40s’ noir movies, so I search inspiration in old films too; and also in my favourite books and songs.
