Inspired by the colors, lights, and shadows in the Baroque paintings of the great Caravaggio, Laura Malaterra's "Caravaggesque Lights" is a series of images dedicated to portrait, spaces, objects, and light.
Caravaggesque lights n°1 by Laura Malaterra
The faces, illuminated in a cone of light, are swallowed by the dark background illuminated by a brushstroke of red that recalls the famous Caravaggesque red.
The expression on the man's face, of a deliberate drama, wants to express our troubled times, where the future appears insecure and shrouded in dark darkness.

Red brushstrokes remind us of the famous Caravaggesque red. Bold and dramatic cuts of lights and shadow interplay in the short but passionate story of a plastic bottle that launches its cry: "Recycle me again, a new life is possible, don't throw me away." Thus, it is transformed into a precious Bohemian crystal to enclose flowers, hopes that have never subsided, and the new awareness of a new and recycled life.
