For her project ‘Renaissance Brushstrokes’ photographer Romina Ressia created a set of classic portraits operated – without digital manipulation – but with brushstrokes which work as the link between two eras, and between the old and the contemporary. With her works Romina explores the similarities between tradition and modernism, between old and new, the common and the unknown. She aims to find out, how our past affects society nowadays and how other atemporal issues are managed today. It’s her way to examine how we’re touched by the changing world in which we live in.
