I love the way Emilio Tini adds notes of surrealism and childhood play into his images. In places his models create the illusion of hypnotic synthesised electronic movement. At other times they are rebels who possess a child-like innocence as they seek freedom yet retreat to familiar comforts reverting to an age when their imagination ruled supreme and was allowed run wild. They are fragile yet fierce. His photos, at times shrouded by a tough youthful anarchist attitude have a playful quality.
Tini also experiments with mixed media, an inherent modern descendant and interpretation of surrealism, as he makes you reexamine the picture by interjecting cut outs.
