The roman carnival: old memories for child eyes


Last carnival I had my usual walk looking for interesting masks and disguises and, sure about where to find them, I went in Piazza Navona, usual place in some days for street shows and other pleasant occasions for meeting friends and people in general. I love these occasions because it’s pretty easy to get closer to subjects and take, without any great risks, effective candid shots and streets pictures. Actually, some people, especially street artists, when get aware of you while shooting, doesn’t get angry but smile and pose…of course every hope of taking a candid shot is lost but some portraits taken in that way are very nice. Anyway, most of the times they are so engaged in arranging the stage or with some other activity, so they basically don’t care about you at all.

It was a very profitable sunday, I went back home with a good lot of sound shots. I had my usual session of postproduction for the black and white version. I hope I didn’t diminished the poetry of those moments that can seem just funny but, for me and anyway in my opinion, are a tender bridge towards some far but not forgotten ages where we could watch a puppet show by child eyes and get excited or enchanted.

This is a selection of shots taken on that day, I hope you could enjoy.

La musica di strada


Fotografare per strada persone senza farsene accorgere è la principale sfida del fotografo di strada. Questa sfida ha peraltro delle situazioni “semplificate”, per così dire. Si tratta delle persone impegnate a fare qualcosa: venditori ambulanti, musicisti ed artisti di strada.

Camminare per Roma porta ad imbattersi in molti artisti di strada. Generalmente credo rappresentino una ricchezza ma lo sono senza dubbio per quanto riguarda il fotografo che può dedicarsi ad un soggetto spesso di straordinaria intensità, distratto dalla propria performance e normalmente abituato ad essere ritratto. Ovviamente l’ideale sarebbe non attirare l’attenzione dell’artista, potendo così ritrarre tutto il pathos. Altre volte, occorre accontentarsi di una foto in posa che però può mantenere la sua intensità. Ecco alcuni scatti presi per le strade di Roma e Napoli.
