Rome, Italy based Micaela Lattanzio has created a unique artistic identity by exploring the idea of fragmentation and reconstruction, implemented within her photographs. In her series called “Frammentazioni”, she takes photographs, predominately portraits, and then gives them a completely new personality by cutting them up into abstract pieces. She then pins the fragments together onto a new canvas, playing with light and depth, to create original works of art.

She uses different materials to realize her works as paper, aluminium, PVC and they born from a detailed manual photo or painting cropping made by her plots, which she breaks down into small pieces of different form, getting an intricate mosaic through which she deconstructs the image that later reassembles, giving to faces, bodies and natural elements a new logical visual that follows an incredible creative patterns.

Fragmenta by Micaela Lattanzio

Micaela Lattanzio produces mozaic-like fragmented portraits by cutting and ripping her prints into abstract shapes and then pinning the fragments to a board. In some, the Italy based photographer, intertwines multiple photos creating a new image, while in others the original image remains intact. The pieces create a visual puzzle that jumps out of the picture plane.
