It’s always a good thing to return in your second country, Germany.
For me street photography doesn’t need necessary to be shoot, for me is a way to meditate, observe and understand the world. In particular observe the society, how it evolves through new trends, new technologies…
In photography and especially street photography it’s important to follow your personal view of the world. This is why I like street photography because it has helped me to have a voice, to share my personal view of the world.
A short series of images taken in Hoyerswerda (2015-2016)
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.
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.
