While photographing people in the street they often become part of a design that is there to be carfully framed.

I ask questions

I ask a lot of questions, I am an explorer, I travel a lot, I travel by sea, I travel by air, I prefer to travel on foot. I don’t like to do it alone though, I feel bad when I am alone, it’s like the world placing a stigma on you.
I don’t eat anybody, I just stare and look, I look around for those that won’t eat me.
If I was a king I would order peace, I would impose respect to everyone, I would treat all women like mothers and all men like children, because children are sacred like mothers. What would you ask a mother, what does a children want?
And if the sun dies, I would lit it up again and ask it to shine for those who smile. I would lit it up for the most beautiful smile I have ever seen, the smile of motherhood. I would build a miniature world where only the things we want to happen will happen. We can build a world like that.
I would make a “good idea hour” each day, where we can tell each other how great are the ideas we have and everyday there will be the king or queen of good ideas.
We would have the antidote to those down days where everything seems grey and every day the officer of anti-down would be designated and he will call the password, the keyword that changes everything and brings light back.
Everyday there will be the moment of questions and listening, where we make silence to listen to the others, because that is what makes everyone happy.

it has no thickness

[…] From one side or the other, the city seems to continue in perspective, multiplying its repertoire of images: on the contrary it has not thickness, it’s only made of one forehand and one back, as a sheet of paper, with a shape here and one there, that cannot detach from the surface nor look at each other.
Italo Calvino, “le Citt√† invisibili”, Moriana

The same way a photo has only one side and what is not portrayed in it does not exist, therefore a body without a face end its existance in an eternal back, a corner won’t be hiding any new road or adventure. There is no opposite side, there is nothing to be discovered, the mistery of the photographic reality is its flatness, welcome to FLATLANDIA!

SUMMER is OVER

SUMMER is OVER and we want to remember it through images shot before the summer even started.

This is OSTIA, not far from Rome as we saw it.

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.
John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America
