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.

“Urban Melodies”, Six Years Ago…

Can Can (Paris)

Today, six years ago, I did my first test with a multi-layered image. I did some works and then I wrote to a friend of mine to ask an advice: “”I’m trying to do some work superimposing photos, but for now I only did a few tests… but I want to do it again to do it better, I want to send it to you so you can tell me if you think that it can get out a nice idea”. The first test was very poor, but there was a potential behind. Six years later, today, my project Urban Melodies permits me to do this job, it’s been recognized and sold in a lot of countries in the world. I’m so grateful for this luck and the opportunity to try to do this career, even with all the difficulties and the worries. Something is sure: I’ll never forget that 14 December 2012…

October 2018

In October I didn’t take many street photos because the first week of the month I had to set my exhibition “Raindrop Blues”, the second week I’ve got the fever, the last two weeks I was attending Rome Film Fest, so… It’s not easy to find my best 10 street photos of the month, but let’s try, even though ALL the images are taken at the Film Festival. November will be better, for sure.

Festa del Cinema di Roma 2018 – Photogallery

As every year since 2006, in October I attended Rome Film Fest as a journalist for my cineblog Una Vita da Cinefilo. As usual, at the end of the Festival, I post the photo gallery to tell in some way what have been for me these 10 days. Friends, colleagues, actors, actresses, people and personalities, fans and especially it, the Auditorium, with its corridors, its halls, its spaces.

Una Vita da Cinefilo

_MG_8628b

Come da tradizione, è arrivato il momento di archiviare anche questa Festa del Cinema con la galleria fotografica che racconta in qualche modo ciò che sono stati per me questi 10 giorni di festival. Amici, colleghi, attori, attrici, persone e personaggi, appassionati e soprattutto lui, l’Auditorium, con i suoi corridoi, le sue sale, i suoi spazi. Tutte le foto sono state realizzate da me (se volete vedere cosa faccio quando non vedo film, fate un salto sulla mia pagina Instagram o Facebook).
