Better an asked portrait or a stolen photo? It depends.
I do not think there is a definition of the best way in absolute but rather a mix of internal and external factors that determine the best choice from time to time.
A few days ago a strange thing happened: I asked an old man in a historical market here in Rome to pose for an environmental portrait, and after I photographed him I was asked to view the photo.
Is 50mm lens really the king of versatility?
There are those who say that 50mm is the most versatile lens on the planet. I think it’s the 35mm instead.
With a 35mm I can go out of my home really light and take photos of street, landscape, reportage, environmental and studio portraits.
If I had to choose only one lens in my kit to carry on my trips, it would be 35mm. Oh damn it… I already do it!
During the month April, 2017, the photojournalistic project called “Lo Stato Delle Cose” was officially presented at the auditorium of L’Aquila, Italy, the city from which it was born a year ago because of the tremendous earthquake that hit it during the night of the April 6th, 2009.
A photo project that lasted for months and will continue to evolve, created by Italian journalists and carried on by nationally and internationally renowned photographers, including some winners of World Press Photo.
