Best of 2019

2019 is almost gone. For me it’s been a year full of satisfactions: first of all, it’s been my very first year of Photography. I mean, for the first time, since last december, photography is been my only job and this is something incredible to me. 2019 led me to Milan for a photo fair and in the village of Amandola, to teach photography to a group of young students (amazing experience). In June I went to Chicago to exhibit my Urban Melodies and I had a flashtalk about my project at Pritzker Forum on Global Cities, it’s been the greatest thing ever happened to me as a photographer. I began my new series Film People and I’m loving it (last week it’s been featured on Vanity Fair!), I went in Greece, to shoot a wonderful wedding and to Amman, Jordan, for a job that made me improve as a photographer. I won Roma Photo Marathon, a great satisfaction. Then, I had the chance to spend in Monopoli my summer holidays and in Sicily my Christmas holidays. I’ve changed apartment in Rome, so it’s been a year full of changes and new expreriences. I tried to collect a random selection of my best street photos of this 2019, I don’t know if I did a good selection, but here they are.

November 2019

November spawned a monster, as Morrissey should say. Beside beautiful songs, November really was a month full of rain (and it’s normal), where I took not many street photos (less normal). In this month I was focused on commissioned works, I went to Amman, Jordan, for a job, but I’ve seen only the airport and the hotel, so I didn’t have time to wander and explore the city (and I had the fever, as well!). So the selection of this month is not so rich, but here it is: my 10 best images of November.

Rome Film Fest 2019 – Photo Gallery

_MG_6146b

Every year since 2006, when the Festival was born, in October I attend the Rome Film Fest as a film critic for my cineblog Una Vita da Cinefilo. I studied cinema at the university so watching movies is probably my biggest passion, maybe more than photography. Anyway, my camera is always with me, so as every year I had the possibility to take pictures to actors (Edward Norton, Bill Murray, John Travolta), directors (Martin Scorsese, Kore’eda Hirokazu, Ron Howard, Ethan Coen, Wes Anderson), common people and go on with my series Film People, that I invite you to follow. Here a selection of images from Festa del Cinema 2019.

“Japan” by Daniele Salutari

06b

The country that I always dream about is, without any doubt, Japan. I’d really like to visit it one day, I think it would be the best for my photography style and for my taste. When this amazing country meets a great street photographer like Daniele Salutari, after seeing the images I dream of Japan even more, if possible. But words are not enough to explain it, let the images talk! Enjoy this gallery and visit Daniele’s website or Instagram.

Roma Photo Marathon 2019

I’m back after a move to a new flat so, as you can guess, I’m exhausted. But in these weeks I had some great news, at the beginning of September I’ve been awarded at Roma Photo Marathon, where I collected three prizes: Best picture in the category “Swirls”, the second prize in the category “Five” and the third prize as Best Photographer of the Marathon. The Photo Marathon is a contest where you have to shoot during one day nine picture, one for each category. The organization give three themes every three hours, so it’s a very interesting challenge. So happy for this recognition among hundreds of other photographers.

Film People Q&A

banner

Già da qualche mese ho cominciato il mio nuovo progetto Film People, di cui vi ho già parlato più volte (in breve: si tratta di una serie di ritratti dove ogni persona è associata al titolo del suo film della vita). Visto che spesso le persone ritratte (e non solo) mi fanno giustamente molte domande a proposito di questo progetto, ho deciso di raccogliere le domande in questo post per soddisfare pienamente la vostra curiosità. Per vedere tutte le foto del progetto potete visitare il sito Film People o il profilo Instagram apposito: filmpeopleproject.

Back in Rome after a beautiful month between Southern Italy (Monopoli, as every summer of my life) and Greece (Athens and then Kimolos, for a wedding). All the images of this selection are taken in these locations, waiting for my new summer pictures in Rome. As every month, I show you my 10 best street photos of the last 30 days (this time just a couple of pictures are good, but it’s ok, the most of the month I’ve been in holidays). And where are you? Or where are you going?
