On the Spot: Veronica Codignoni

Veronica Codignoni, aka ContessaNera photography, 22 anni,  si sta laureando in Traduzione specializzata. Ama le storie, i miti, gli universi letterari, la musica e il colore rosso. Fotografa per mostrare la bellezza che non si vede e i mille mondi nascosti dietro i visi che indossiamo tutti i giorni. La sua fotografia ritrae persone comuni in ambienti comuni, aggiungendo un tocco di impossibile qua e là, un pizzico di immaginazione, una drammaticità o una leggerezza tipiche di incubi e sogni con colori a volte cupi, a volte delicati. Non ritrae quasi mai la realtà com’è qui e ora, ma come potrebbe essere o potrebbe essere stata. Non sceglie visi particolari, cerca di rendere particolari i visi che trova.

**English translation**

Veronica Codignoni, aka ContessaNera photography is  a 22 years old student in Specialized Translation. She loves stories, myths, literary universes, music and the colour red. She takes pictures to show the beauty that cannot be seen, and the thousand worlds that hide behind the faces we wear everyday. Her photography portrays ordinary people in ordinary places, with a touch of impossible here and there, a sprinkle of imagination, a drama or lightness typical of nightmares and dreams with sometimes dark and sometimes delicate colours. She almost never portrays reality as it is here and now, but how it could be or could have been. She doesn’t choose peculiar faces, she tries and makes peculiar the faces she finds.
