The duo Formento+Formento sent us the first images of the news series they are working on:
“Work in Progress… ” Nostalgia”.
We are taking a few years to explore sentimental longing, feelings of pleasure, the wistful affection we have for the past and for a period or place.”
Formento + Formento are known for their inventive and stylized photography that explore the uncanny and perverse, revealing double edged allegories with underlying lyricism . Utilising conceptually playful staged scenes that are psychologically evocative, the eerie sensuality of their style reveals a fascination with fiction and reality.
Under the name Formento + Formento, Richeille Formento styles and art directs, while BJ Formento lights and photographs. The images are a mutual portrait – an exchange in which the artist’s individualities blur, leaving traces on each other.
