Some swim freely with white sharks up to 6 meters long, two tons heavy and with rows of crisp carnivorous teeth. Others are at least as tough and have social balls of concrete. Meet Paolo Barretta (I AM WINTER)

Your fearless approach to accurately portray emotions, when did you discover that trait?

- I discovered my way to communicate through photography three years ago while I was living a dark creative period. I just woke up one day and I started feeling like there was something to tell to the world. I realized then that it was basically me.

Hello, my name is Paolo and I have this thing with green and yellow loneliness.

What is the best way to deal with green and yellow loneliness?

- Uhm, is there a good way to deal with green and yellow loneliness? Ahah. I don know, this is something I do for myself, as I developed this way to see the world through those two colors. I'm very attracted to the perfect mix between green and yellow and I just unified them with my feelings in photography.

What is the main difference between good and less good art?

- I'm literally no one to tell what's good and less good art. I think it's about different ways to see and understand art itself.

We have to make a difference between pop or commercial art, and maybe something more "weird" or particular. I do believe that what's really important is to communicate something through art, whatever the style is. That's definitely a good one.
