Are we waiting?

Are you waiting for something? You will be waiting for a long time. Because the moment you start to wait for your life to become what you would like it to be, your life passes you by. We are all so concerned about what happened and what will happen, that we miss the only thing …

Rediscover our inner ‘nature’

We hide nature from our sight, under the streets, behind buildings.. We try to control it and at the same time we show off our will to preserve it. Let’s just face it, let’s recognize ourself in its beauty and fragility, in its kindness and strength… Enjoy your weekend doubters and use this spare time …

Have we forgotten how to use our feet?

Alice has a doubt: Have we forgotten how to use our feet?  Alice is a friend of mine who lives in Milan but is from London. Last year she made her first pilgrimage: from London to Rome by foot. Let me present her doubt… Modern society is designed to reduce our footsteps as far as …

THE WORLD WE HAVEN’T EXPLOITED YET

Dog: “What’s the matter with them?” We are surrounded by stuff. Stuff that we buy, we use (for a while), stuff that consumes us, represents us, stuff that we need, we desire… Stuff, Stuff, Stuff…it’s all about Stuff… What do we do with all these things? There’s a non-sense in the spending/wasting of money. Beyond …

PLAYING GROWN-UPS

I believe in change and that doubts make people change themselves and the world they live in. Let’s see the doubt in this picture and start changing, now. This picture has a fundamental doubt in it, and it clearly explains it by itself. I took this picture in Jerusalem. These kids were playing with fake …

WHAT DO YOU SAVE FROM 2013?

This year has almost ended and a new one will begin. Even if time is a flow where the only thing that actually exists is the instant we are living, the present, we always perceive a pressure by what has been, the past, and what is going to be, the future. That’s why at the …

Lights, camera, action!

As if Trocadero in Paris became the stage of a Fellini movie, people dressed up like ancient Romans or greek divinities were preparing for a scene. Past imaginary and symbols tried to come back into present but a picture broke the spell. Sometimes photography is able to create a tale around a setting, to enrich …

Memories have no doubts

“Nothing of myself is there anymore, only the memory of old bedrooms, and the sound of my mother’s slippers walking towards the kitchen. Only the experience that comes from memories doesn’t carry doubts. But we wear out the present and have no time for memories.” Giuseppe is a friend of mine who attends with me …

taking pictures of pictures

When you visit Paris you must: 1. drink french wine 2. have a pic-nic with friends during the week end 3. eat a falafel in the Marais district – I suggest at ‘L’as du fallafel’ 4. go to Montmartre and try to recognise Amelie Poulain’s places 5. visit the Louvre museum 6. listen to Edith Piaf while eating a …

What if they looked at eachother

Almost everyday we leave our house, our private space, to join the world. We cross the street, we go to the grocery store, we take the underground to go to work, we meet people that we don’t know everywhere. How many times do we get to know them? We are always so concerned about the …

the MONA LISA’s WINK

The Louvre is an amazing museum full of works of art, paintings, sculptures and…people! The latter was the subject I was more interested to. In fact, being in the Louvre in front of the Mona Lisa painting you realize that its beauty, history and master, don’t catch visitors’ eyes. In fact there’s something else that …

BROTHERHOOD of MEN

This picture for me represents brotherhood. Those people we’ve chosen as our sisters, brothers, lovers for a lifetime. Those people that you feel you are connected to because they share with you the same tuning, because you were meant to know each other. For somebody these people are the friends that surround him/her, for others …
