- Where new meets old. During the pandemic of 2020 a street vendor of African decent walks along the side walk as a young European women passes by on an e-scooter. To me this captures our changing world so elegantly. A world full of uncertainty and promise. A world in which the internet has created a borderless society yet the under the guise of the pandemic nations are attempting to become isolationist. Ignoring the lessons of past civilizations and their empires from the Egyptians and Chinese, to the Romans and Ottomans, all of which turned inward as their collapse became imminent.
Metropolitan City of Rome
- Between 2008 and 2009 I realized a photographic campaign on the artifacts of industrial archeology. Observing those spaces, I thought of the function that they had in the past in relation to the city, to their present state of emptiness, abandon, and ruin, and how a community can make them function and rethink their use. The project “Romantico Metropolitano” concentrates on some “unresolved” spaces, from an uncertain future, or better, from the future in which another conflict would generate, in fact, conflict places.
- The Colosseum or Coliseum (/ˌkɒləˈsiːəm/ KOL-ə-SEE-əm), also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin: Amphitheatrum Flavium; Italian: Anfiteatro Flavio [aɱfiteˈaːtro ˈflaːvjo] or Colosseo [kolosˈsɛːo]), is an oval amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy. Built of travertine limestone, tuff (volcanic rock), and brick-faced concrete, it was the largest amphitheatre ever built at the time and held 50,000 to 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum is situated just east of the Roman Forum. Construction began under the emperor Vespasian in AD 72 and was completed in AD 80 under his successor and heir, Titus. Further modifications were made during the reign of Domitian (81–96). These three emperors are known as the Flavian dynasty, and the amphitheatre was named in Latin for its association with their family name (Flavius).
- We woke up at 5am to grab some sunrise shots over St. Marks square, but the weather wasn’t on our side. It was foggy, and all around presented terrible shooting conditions. As we were leaving, I decided to shoot a final picture at this arch leading into the square. The walkways in the image are a result of early morning workers getting ready for potential floods, and I was very happy with the way it lead into the arch, with mysterious yet inviting orange lights in the background.
- Picturesque Burano is known for its brightly colored fishermen’s houses and its casual eateries serving seafood from the lagoon. The Museo del Merletto has exhibits on the development of lace-making in the area, and shops sell lace products like linens and clothes, as well as the local butter cookies called “bussolai buranei.” The ancient Chiesa di San Martino has a leaning 17th-century bell tower.
Metropolitan City of Venice
- Walking around, looking for whatever I could find during my short time in Venice. It was just about evening, with the sun finally on it’s way down. It had been a blistering hot Summer’s day, and I was looking for some shade. I walked hastily across a short bridge, when I realized, only after crossing, that there was a beautiful canal with a pair of Gondola boat’s drifting through, so I real quickly made my way back and shot a few exposures that blended nicely into this image. This image predominately reminds me of the nice, cool break from the otherwise scorching sunlight that day.
- I took this picture during a trip on the Lake Garda, in the north of Italy. I thought that the b&w was perfect to capture the atmosphere of this place: i thougth it was a silent, peaceful shot to take. The waves slowly and gently hitting the rocks, the bright sky and the absence of human presence, exept the little ship in the middle of the lake inspired me. I was on the edge of one of the rocks and I felt perfetctly balance, the same balance the picture gives me.
