Diario da Casa – 18 Marzo

La giornata si è aperta con una bellissima email della mia gallerista cinese, Lanjie, che mi ha parlato dell’incoraggiante situazione attuale in Cina, offrendosi di mandarmi, nel caso ne avessi avuto bisogno, mascherine e equipaggiamento protettivo di qualunque tipo, dicendosi molto grata per il supporto avuto dalla Cina nei primi tempi e per la mia comprensione nei confronti della galleria d’arte, che è chiusa ormai da un paio di mesi. Tutto il loro piano espositivo di questo periodo e forse di tutta l’annata è inevitabilmente saltato (ogni anno girano fiere e mostre d’arte in Cina dove mettono in mostra i lavori dei loro artisti, tra cui io), ma stanno comunque progettando di realizzare alcune mostre online ogni mese con focus sui vari artisti della galleria e sui loro lavori.

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.

June 2019

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.

June 2018

Summer has come, usually June for me is a very lazy month, I really need to recharge the batteries so I’m just waiting for my holiday in July. Furthermore, I must admit it, World Cup doesn’t help. So, this is the reason for my lack of photography in this month. It’s been hard to choose 10 decent street photos to show you in this feature, but this is the “best” I did in June…

My 2018 Begins Now

[ENG]
Dear friends,

Today is the very first working day of my 2018, 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 bring my camera with me many times as I can, because in 2017 I left it at home a little too much. Then, I want to realize another “Roma Coast to Coast” and exhibit the project somewhere in Rome. I’d like to do a workshop to teach something about photography and my style (Urban Melodies), but before I have to learn to speak in front of people… Maybe I’d also like to create a photobook, but let’s see.

As a man I’d like to travel a little 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.
