Phototoxins remains part of an ongoing series in which he questions the connection between photography, image creation and visual diary. Offering the viewer fragmented and distorted information imagery, Straniero foregrounds that fact that the link between subject and composition is never casual, nor is it ever complete. His technique of frying images (while adding trace elements of tape, thread and pinholes) is an endless process of seeking the perfect combination of chance and control in his work. He successfully transforms traditional photographic narrative into a more colourful and dystopian reconstruction.
