Take a moody walk through old Italy. Paolo Ventura digs back into childhood dreamtime by building miniature sets of small Italian towns and making large photos of them. The result is a lush and contemplative body of work that may inspire you.

Instagram inspiration. Many of the sets he spent weeks building will be on display. You can't touch them, but you can take a few shots with your phone. Your FB friends will be impressed that you got so arty since you usually post pics of your dog.

Explore the unreal. Ventura brings a pragmatic outlook to his art. "People started as real, as a witness, of something out in the world," Ventura says. "What you see now is more people in our field using photography that they all manipulate. Nothing is real, more or less."
