It’s always hard to be inspired in photography and others creative works. This happened to me. I feel uninspired, in fact when I walk through the streets of my town, it all seems the same.
Actually I’m living in a small town in the south of Italy. Before I’ve started shooting street photography, I’ve thought that I would never be able at it because of the boring place in which I’m living.
It all starts with a normal digital camera and than I discover street photography. It was a normal day, I was surfing the net when suddenly I come across images that represented ordinary moments on the streets, with or without people. I was amazed of this genre of photography, I made some researches about it and discovered that his name was street photography.
I will share with you some photos that, in according to me, are my favourite shots, not my best, because the best one is outside and wait to be shot.
After three weeks in Germany I’m returned in Italy. It was a great time spent with my grandparents, where I’ve meditate on who I am, what direction my photography should take and rediscovered shooting people and in color.
Shooting street photography is not only a way to capture peoples emotions’ and their souls, during a normal day, but is also a way to discover who you are.
After three months passed shooting urban landscape, to document the place where people live, I restarted shooting people.
I’m back in Germany exactly in Hoyerswerda where I will stay for three weeks. I’ve really miss this city, here I feel at home but unfortunately here isn’t my home, I don’t know where I belong. I feel like an homeless because sometimes I don’t know if I’m an italian or an german boy, sometimes I’ve this sense of confusion.
