Inge Morath al Museo di Trastevere

Il Museo di Trastevere regala sempre grandi mostre fotografiche e quella della fotografa austriaca Inge Morath, una delle prime donne ad entrare nella mitica agenzia Magnum, non fa eccezione: “La fotografia è essenzialmente una questione personale: la ricerca di una verità interiore”.

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.

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.

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.

May 2019

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.

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.
