Cecilia di Paolo - To the Ones I've Dated

"We all have those objects. The ones we cherish. The ones we touch for comfort. The ones that knock the air out of us at just a glimpse.
They catapult us into the past, these things we know we should throw away, but don’t.

From a handwritten break-up letter, to a discarded pack of Marlboro Lights, each inanimate object hits a nerve and begs the question: is there anything worth keeping, once love is lost?

This is the question photographer Cecilia Di Paolo explores in her upcoming Solo Show: “To the Ones I’ve Dated.”

In her still life photography of the items that were given or left behind by lovers, Cecilia captures the correlation between the emotional and the material world, irrational, however undeniable; An exhibition that celebrates our memories and attachments."
