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!
