Marc Valesella : Unknown Master by Lena Herzog

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

First, it must be noted that Marc Valesella could have been a musician or an engineer in equal measure, and a great one at either.

His wife Gaia proudly points out the exquisite sound system which Marc built from scratch and an impressive collection of rare LPs. A finely tuned taste is a taste in everything.

And Marc’s taste is as impeccable as the precision of his knowledge of instruments—from the enlargers and cameras to the lenses, it is immediately striking. The sense for aesthetics and science are balanced to make him the greatest printer of photography I have ever come across. Be that his own work or the work of other photographers who do not print their pictures, each image comes to life, to its best version of self: radiant, dramatic and subtle, mysterious and revealing, for Marc is a radically endangered type—a true master.
