There is something cool about the way in which you can use texture in photography.
It’s becoming a good habit of mine, to walk around town with a friend, my dog and my camera. Usually, you are so familiar with the place you live in that several things can get unnoticed, especially small things. The camera often works as a magnifying glass, where ordinary things gain importance while they are put into a different context. You choose and select the world around you in order to create a sequence of images which convey a personal vision and tell a unique story.
Around Genoa with my personal assistent…
I’ve finally got in the studio to work on a new project. It’s a work in progress, but I had this idea in my head for a while now, so I had to try it out. Plastic is quite challenging to photograph, as it’s not a beautiful subject and you’ll end up with plenty of riflections to deal with…But I love challenges and hate pollution…so I had to give it a try!
How are you? I just wanted to say hello! It has been a while…I wanted to write something, but I didn’t quite know what to say. This is such a difficult time. We are all dealing with uncertanty and fear and at the same time, we are trying to get things done, while adapting to new realities.
In Italy, as you know, we have been in lockdown for some time. I’m currently teaching online. I had to learn how to do it quickly, just like many other teachers. I live in an apartment with my dog and two cute cats. I talk to my friends on video and with my lovely neighbour on my balcony :-).
I’ve decided to spend most of my time in lockdown to learn new skills. This is helpful, it keeps my mind occupied and relaxes me. Photography is also very helpful when I face hard times, so you’ll probably see me a bit more often on this blog, from now on, as I’m thinking to start a lockdown project.
I just hope that you are all well and safe. If anyone needs to talk, I’ll be here. I’ll be available. Stay safe at home and use creativity in order to feel free.
Lots of love from Italy XX
