Valentin Marco: Disgrace

“I photographed my path and my feelings honestly and instinctively”, - says Valentin Marco about his series Disgrace. And, indeed, you can feel it with your guts. No turning away, no avoidance, no embarrassment of the camera at the sight of disgrace. Or, rather, shedding light on everything that’s there, raw, unappropriate, excessive, dark but also bright, fun and totally enjoyable. And snow running through the whole story as a note of peace.

"Disgrace is a selection of pictures taken between 2013 and 2017, when nights were longer than days. A mix of brightness and sorrow that I was strained to capture. I photographed my path and my feelings honestly and instinctively.

This era is now gone but the pictures remain."
