Urban Landscape Photographer
Urban landscape photographer. He was given his first camera at the age of 16 by himself. For many years his concentration was mainly as an architectural photographer. It was, as he has said, an obsessive pursuit for an unreal purity. One day, after being annoyed by people walking into her shot, he decided not to fight it anymore, to shoot people passing by the buildings. That began his venture into street photography!
la fotografia di strada o "street photography" usa le tecniche della fotografia "immediata, diretta". Essa ha l'intento di mostrare un qualcosa , una visione pura, quanto più naturale e viscerale possibile del soggetto, concentrandosi, spesso, su un singolo momento umano.
Street photography uses the techniques of straight photography in that it shows a pure vision of something, like holding up a mirror to society. Street photography often tends to be ironic and can be distanced from its subject matter, and often concentrates on a single human moment, caught at a decisive or poignant moment. On the other hand, much street photography takes the opposite approach and provides a very literal and extremely personal rendering of the subject matter, giving the audience a more visceral experience of walks of life they might only be passingly familiar with. In the 20th century, street photographers have provided an exemplary and detailed record of street culture in Europe and North America, and elsewhere to a somewhat lesser extent.
