The first month of the year is the month that took me for three days in Milan to attend the Affordable Art Fair, where the stand of Pica Photo, in which I exposed my photos, was chosen by Sky Arte for the Best Booth Award. Like every first day of the month, let’s see the 10 best street photos I took in the previous month. It’s very cold and for this reason I didn’t take many photos: it’s time to get out of the comfort zone and go around with the camera!

[ENG] Vincenzo has been making pizzas for over 50 years, working every day from 7 to 22. His life, as well as his pizzeria, is a life of expects, preparation, waiting for the arrival of customers and evening orders. Between dead times and signs of fatigue. In an increasingly dynamic world, where everyone is in a hurry, the slow life of this Roman pizzeria brings us closer to the flavors of the past, in this story realized a few days before the final closure.

My 2019 Begins Now

Dear friends,

Today is the very first working day of my 2019, so I’m here to wish you a wonderful new year. I want to ask you something: what are your resolutions for photography this year? Regarding me, I want to try to realize some little projects, like small reportage about people in Rome or something like that. I have some idea, I really hope to realize it. Then, I’d like to do another “Coast to Coast” in a different city, in Italy or in Europe, I don’t know.

As a man I’d like to travel always more, and I want to have more real connections with people and friends (as BoJack Horseman says: “In this terrifying world, all we have are the connections that we make”), so more beers (ha-ha). I want to do something new, read more, learn more, write more, be better.

And what about you? Hope the best for your life projects, goals and everything that makes you happy.

Love,
Alessio.

Best of 2018

_MG_0336

Here we are. 2018 is almost gone: for me this is the moment to look back and see what I did. It’s been a very good year for me: Sicily, London, Naples (two times), an artistic residence on a cruise and a lot of other little nice things. I tried to choose the 30 best street photos I did this year, I don’t know if I did a good selection, but here they are.

Coming Soon: “Pizza e…”

Teaser1

[ITA] Vincenzo fa pizze da oltre 50 anni, lavorando ogni giorno dalle 7 alle 22. La sua, così come quella della sua pizzeria, è una vita fatta di attese, di preparazione, aspettando l’arrivo dei clienti e degli ordini serali. Tra tempi morti e segni di stanchezza. In un mondo sempre più dinamico, dove tutti vanno di fretta, la lentezza della vita di questa pizzeria romana ci avvicina ai sapori del passato, in questo racconto realizzato pochi giorni prima della chiusura definitiva.

Cuaron’s “Roma” and the Images of Manuel Alvarez Bravo

mab01b

Last sunday I was watching on Netflix “Roma” by Alfonso Cuaron, incredible movie, one of the best films I’ve seen this year (and I watch A LOT of movies). “Roma” is in black and white and the story tells daily life of a rich family in Mexico City in 1970, seen through the eyes of Cloe, “la nana”, one of the housemaids. Cuaron’s movie and style made me think a lot about Manuel Alvarez Bravo’s pictures. Bravo was one of the most important latin-american photographers ever: his work tells a lot about Mexico of the last century and “Roma” reminds me that. Here some images of Manuel Alvarez Bravo, a photographer that I invite you to know better.
