Sara Maragotto is one interesting image maker. With a portfolio full of quiet but brilliantly variegated colours and a process that I can’t tell you a whole lot about (only that it looks a lot like very hands on print techniques like lithography or mono printing) hers is a body of images with ambiguous arrangements, strangely diagrammatic qualities and not a little intrigue.
In particular, I’m really liking these spots for Italian short story magazine Follelfo which are inspired, she says, by scientific iconography, specifically Testut’s Atlas of Human Anatony.
