This newly published photo book marks the end of the first chapter of Andrea Tonellotto’s artistic work: a silent film he shot through the years, with a Polaroid SX-70. Each picture included in this book is an honest representation of an extremely sophisticated storytelling—a personal style of poetry that is nonetheless universal.
Just A Perfect Day is a selection of 56 Polaroids that stands out for the circumscription of colour within space, the lighting and its angle, and the relationship between memory and events as they occur—as well as the stretching of a single moment to infinity, and the surrealism that feeds only on reality.
