Do you care?

Do you care?

That is a frequent question as a street photographer.

We see so many not beautiful things, or just real things, that we ask ourselves if we care, if you care.

We’ve become so used to many wrong things around us that we simply walk by them as a natural part of life.

We shouldn’t get used to the ugly, to the wrong, to the not moral, to evil or any kind of bad truth.

We should be gladiators of a better world.

We should all be an army fighting for a real better world.

Nations spend so much money in weapons saying that they are fighting for a free world but I really don’t think so.

With all the money spent on wars, we could easily change the reality of all countries in need, we could stop hunger, we could stop the many exoduses around the globe.

We should feel responsible for every ugly thing so we could be a change factor.

This is our planet and, you know what, it’s not that big.

Today we have the internet and by this, we are all connected, we can know live what’s happening everywhere.

How can we be so selfish?

I don’t like tourists!

I like voyagers!

The main difference is that a tourist is an ignorant guy that simply go without feeling.

A voyager becomes part of a new reality.

It is much more respectful as a person, as a human being and as a useful member of our society.

We should all be voyagers!

In our everyday life, we walk by the wrong, the bad and the ugly and the best we do is to say that our governors are incompetent.

You know what, your governor is a you that got there!

Think about it!

Street Photography

Street Photography

As I decided to dive into photography I looked for all kind of possibilities.

I’ve started with photos for models books but, to be honest, I immediately thought that kind of photography was depressing.

Personally, I don’t see a meaning in making photos of people that want to be famous or liked. Even if these people are pretty girls.

I’m sure that Mario Testino has another vision of it but, his photos are much more interesting and complex than the ones I was shooting.

I discovered street photography looking at a book of Henri Cartier Bresson.

I realized that photography should be a frame that could be considered as an entire movie.

A unique frame with the power of an entire story.

This kind of photography is fascinating!

I really think that being a street photographer is much more than being a photo taker.

We are feline eyes looking at the world around us.

We usually see things that nobody else sees or pays attention.

We immortalize fractions of existence in a graphic way.

I really think that we have a mission in this world.

This is one of the reasons that made me think about having a blog.

We see and feel so many stories in our everyday activities that many of them deserve to be told.

As I told in a previous post, not every idea can be transformed into a movie, or a music, or a book because we don’t have enough time in life to do so.

If we really try to leave every day as much as we can, we will have tons of stories.

This is awesome at the bar or in a dinner with friends because we will always have something new or interesting to say but, we just can produce every idea.

The fact is that every great shot is a production.

Many times I realized that I spent an eternity looking at a frame that I had just taken that day.

Many times I was magnetized by a shoot that I’ve taken.

The real power of photography is to allow us to think and look at our everyday world in a unique way!

My first post!

My first post!

This is my first post!

You might ask why have a blog?

Well, as I’ve decided to become a storyteller one of the reasons must be because I have something to say, at least I want to.

I do music, films, books and all kind of expression forms but, you know, if you have a lot of ideas in a day you probably don’t have the time to make from each one of them a production.

Also, as a street photographer, I face a lot of things that I think deserve to be told, at least, things that make me think about life and how we deal with it.

I will start this blogging journey, hope you enjoy as much I will do!
