JUST A PERFECT DAY

"This newly published photo book marks the end of the first chapter of Andrea Tonellotto's artistic work: a silent film he shot trough 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."

"In June 1969, Butturini traveled to London and was instantly captivated by the dynamics of the “Swinging City” in a decade defined by social revolution, freedom of expression, and political controversy. Picking up a camera for the first time, he was drawn to the immediacy of the photographic medium. The resulting black-and-white photographs testify to Butturini’s fascination with the darker side of London—the “true, bare” version of the city of the disenfranchised, destitute, and marginalized. The Tube, pubs, and streets were the stage of a frenzied humanity unseen by the tourists, who were wooed by Piccadilly and Carnaby Street. Butturini recorded shots of everyday life full of pain and sarcasm, but also of joy and lyricism."
