Amandola: My Experience as a Middle School Teacher

aman18b

As I’ve already told you in my last post, in February I’ve spent some days in a beautiful small town, Amandola, in the middle of Italy, to teach photography to 16 students of a local middle school (these lessons were part of a bigger project about the city, “Visioni Sibilline”, but my task was focused only on photography). It was one of the most beautiful experience I’ve ever done as a photographer and I couldn’t believe how incredible these kids are: their photos were stunning, they really succeeded to tell the city, with amazing portraits and a lot of interesting images of the town. In this gallery I’m going to show you a selection of my favourite pictures, taken by these great 13/14 year old teenagers.

Hi everybody! Sorry for being far from the blog in the last month, I was really busy with a new, exciting, project: I’ve been every week in a small town in the middle of Italy to teach photography to 15 students of the middle school: it’s been one of the most beautiful experience of my life as a photographer and in the next days I’ll show you some shoots realized by my students, they are stunning. As always I’m going to post my best 10 street photos of this month. I didn’t take a lot of pictures in February, but that’s it.

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!

Pizza e…

[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.
