June 2019

chicago01head

Spring is gone, summer is here. June is been a busy month, but also a month full of satisfactions: I went in Chicago to showcase my Urban Melodies at Priztker Forum on Global Cities and it’s been wonderful (as I’ve already told in my last post). After Chicago I had to leave my apartment in Rome after 6 beautiful years: waiting to move in another one in September, always in Rome, I’m in the Southern Italy like every summer. This month I want to show you 20 and not 10 of my best street photos of the last 30 days, all taken in Chicago. What about next month? Well, I’m about to go in Greece as a wedding photographer, it’s something rare for me, I do it only for friends or for people that permit me to realize something special for their wedding, something different than the usual wedding pictures. Maybe I’ll show you something of my unseen wedding photos in a future post… After the wedding I’ll be back in Monopoli again, in the Southern Italy, to finally enjoy my well-deserved holidays. Well, it’s time to show you my best of June: hope you will enjoy the gallery. See you soon.

Urban Melodies at Pritzker Forum on Global Cities

Last week I’ve been in Chicago to talk at the 2019 Pritzker Forum on Global Cities. On the walls, a selection of my series Urban Melodies, 10 amazing prints chosen from my project. I had the opportunity to talk on the stage about my project, it was my first speech in english and I was very excited for it. Here, in this video, my flashtalk about “Urban Melodies”.

I’m sorry. I’m so busy and I forgot to post my usual “Best of the Month”. May in Rome was everything but the spring: rain all the time, rain and more rain. It’s been the month of the annual Rome Photo Marathon, so it’s been a good occasion to go out all day long and take some picture. Here my 10 best street photos of last month.

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.

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…
