Paradiso, by Eduard Ripoll Vidal


Paradiso is a series of  twenty tintypes. The tintype is a nineteenth century photographic technique which creates a direct positive and, therefore, a unique and unrepeatable image whose central axis is the closeness and the mundane.

Tintypes can be portraits and landscapes, sometimes unheard of, which make us feel the passing of time. They are presented inside a light box, recalling the simplicity and the strength of a haiku where the presence of nature, the exaltation of the instant and the objective capture of an experience take shape.

The small size of the image creates an intimate and close dialogue with the spectator in a visual language exploited to its limits.

A professional photographer since 1997, and a photojournalist in local and national newspapers, he is currently a staff photographer for  the newspaper Levante-EMV and since 2012 uses the wet collodion technique in his personal projects.
