These are black and white photos books, all taken with a very simple camera: a Holga he uses since 6 or 7 years, an ??entirely plastic made camera, including the lens. This device, with all its technical limitations, gives to his photos a very special touch, a hushed and dreamlike atmosphere due to the low sharpness and unpredictable "vignetting".
Baldacchino isolates objects, places, structures in a milky background which brings a timeless, poetic and intimate dimension at his pictures.
