At a local street market you can find panties for just two euros, tracking suits with golden details, hair extensions, fruit, old hags shouting out their ridiculous prices, fake and fucking ugly Barbies, flea-inhabited blankets… What you do not expect is that a photographer as talented as Lorenzo Vittori could take all these elements that you can find at London’s Dalston Ridley road Market and combine them into colourful surrealist compositions, which make rotten fruit, hair extensions or even simple slugs something dangerously attractive. We’re waiting for Lorenzo to pass by our neighbourhood market, so that he can make a new still life out of “Jélo Kitty” sweaters and trousers, giving new impulse to the “choni” aesthetics.
