Roma: Street Photography in the Eternal City

For Street Photography, Roma is one of the most interesting cities in the world. A place full of contradictions, where the sacred and the profane, Romans and foreigners, the bourgeois soul and the popular one coexist. A colorful mixture of students, workers, politicians, priests, tourists and artists.

Streets of Istanbul

As I’ve already told you in the last posts, I’m organizing my archive, I’m opening all the folders I have since 2009 to create a good selection of images for my archive.

Color / B&W #1

It’s good sometimes to come back to photography so I want to begin a new feature, where I’ll show you some of my street photos in double version, color and black and white. I always posted on my channels the first one because reminds me the cover of Bob Dylan’s The Freewheelin’, but I think it’s time to hear your thoughts!

Distant But Close

The world through your windows. This album is realized by you, it’s just a way to be closer in the distance, during the lockdown caused by the Covid19 emergency. I’m trying to map the world outside your windows in this difficult time, where we can’t leave our houses. Send me your photo here: a.trerotoli@gmail.com (and, if you want, add a line to describe the scene).

All the pictures will be posted in the album on my Facebook page: the name of the album is Distant But Close.

Please send me your image and spread the word!
