April 2019

“April, come she will”, as Simon and Garfunkel used to sing. I’m not going out just for street photography, in these weeks I’m really focused on my three projects Urban Melodies (ready to fly to Chicago for my biggest exhibition), Raindrop Blues and the latest Film People (in these days a selection of this series is in Teatro Palladium in Rome for the amazing Roma Tre Film Festival), so it’s hard to go out in the street and shoot without an idea behind. By the way, as every month I’m going to show you my 10 best street photos, so take a look here to watch my best pictures of April.

Anche quest’anno il Palazzo delle Esposizioni ospita la mostra World Press Photo, che dal 1955 raccoglie il meglio del fotogiornalismo mondiale. Il vincitore dell’edizione di quest’anno è stato John Moore con la foto “Crying Girl on the Border”, che mostra una bambina originaria dell’Honduras in lacrime mentre lei e sua madre vengono arrestate dalla polizia di frontiera statunitense al confine texano.

Ten Minutes More

[Dieci minuti in più: in basso la versione in italiano]

[ENG] One of the unwritten rules of Street Photography suggests to walk 10 more minutes. I mean: when you have finished your shooting and you are about to go back home, when you are about to put the camera in your bag, well, walk and take photos for 10 more minutes. Sometimes you will be able to find a little treasure that you wouldn’t have discovered otherwise. For example, last week I went out to take some pictures for my Raindrop Blues series. After a two-hour shoot under the rain, I decided to take the subway and go home. Here, instead of taking the train and leaving, I thought I’d walk 10 more minutes to photograph a little more and walk to the next subway station. The best image of my shooting was taken in those 10 more minutes of work. It’s not a “rule” that can always work, of course, but every once in a while striving to add a little more time to what you have already did can give great results.

March 2019

Spring has arrived and with it the usual post with the 10 best photos of the previous month. In March I focused mainly on my new Film People project (that you can follow in this website or the new Instagram page), which is why I took very few street photographs (only 5, the ones you find in this post, along with 5 portraits of the project). Hope that April will be better for my street photos…

Here is Title, Poster and Description of My New Series!

[Ecco titolo, poster e descrizione del mio nuovo progetto: in basso la versione in italiano]

[ENG] We all carry within us the title of a film, a movie that has marked our memories and which, in some way, defines us. If it’s true that a photographic portrait can tell a lot, even more can tell the film we are more attached to. The goal of this project is to tell the people portrayed through the cinema, through a film that can define them, thus revealing a piece of their soul: as the “book people” of Fahrenheit 451 preserved the memory of the books, in the same way my series, FILM PEOPLE, wants to link every person to the film of his life.

What will they have written on that blackboard? My new project is coming soon, very soon… In this teaser a little preview, a sort of backstage taken before the photos. So far I did 15 portraits, they are going to be at least 20 for the end of this week. Can’t wait to tell you more, to show you this new series that I care very much. In the image below another preview without “spoilers”. I really can’t wait to go on with this project. Hope you will appreciate it.
