Marcello – Porta Portese Flea Market
Marcello for me, is the real king of the market. Gentle, sweet and easy going, accompanied by a wife from Eastern Europe who is definitely older than him and with a really bad character.
Try to keep him away from getting in touch with me every time I’ve approached this man during the last months, but maybe he’s the first one who likes to be photographed and never forget the prints I gave him.
Knowing characters and their stories allows me to enter into an always new and intimate context, creating mutual recognition and a friendly environment if you want to come back and visit them in the future.
Having with me a discreet, fast, reliable camera that is often mistaken for a vintage object greatly facilitates the image acquisition process.
