“Assenza” (“Absence”) is a series in which Lombard photographer Paolo Valassi pays homage to the great master Luigi Ghirri. The echo of the artist’s style and the attractive quality of absence in these wintertime visions of Romagna’s seaside entertain a conversation within the precise frames. Simplicity stops at the surface of these images, drawing us into a curious observation of the void.
