From the press Release for "Chiara Oscura" by Junko Terao, 2005
"Somebody defined his work as a "new form of reportage".
Actually Roberto Saletti's photographs are born from a process which is
the exact opposite of what we call reportage. The taking of the photograph
remains decisive, but only as far as the initial moment of a"deconstruction
of the object" which finishes with the dark room. "Months or
years pass between taking the photo and printing the negative, and in that
time I lose any bond with the photographic object which becomes a
vague memory, more or less defined."
