Green Is The Colour

Being already content with the pictures made with Helios-44M lens on the Canon DSLR, I wasn’t expecting to see the surprising results I had with the same lens on the Fuji X-T20.

The level of details and smoothness are amazing. The camera’s manual focus is clever, easy to use and I look forward to use this magic combination more.

While the autumnal colours are still my favourites, the flourishing plants in the garden are a feast for the eyes.

Shutter Hub Open Exhibition 2017 At Retina Photography Festival

I am excited and honoured to announce that my photo The Day I Glimpsed Inside Your Soul will be part of the Shutter Hub Open Exhibition 2017, at the Retina Scottish International Photography Festival.

The Day I Glimpsed Inside Your Soul
The Day I Glimpsed Inside Your Soul
The photo tells the story of thousands of people who walked through the gate of Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Oranienburg, on the outskirts of Berlin.

Sadly, for too many of them it was a one way journey. Others were lucky enough to live through it. My husband’s grandfather was one of them.

He managed to escape from the camp, a few weeks before the Red Army stormed into Berlin. Without looking back, he started the long journey that eventually brought him back home in Italy, after five years of imprisonment.

The photo tells a personal story too, of a grandchild retracing his grandfather’s steps, from the train station through the gate, imagining the horror, the fear, the cold. The chill still painfully palpable.

Both men turned their back to the gate and never looked back, 71 years apart.

The exhibition runs from 1st – 30th of July 2017, in beautiful Edinburgh.

Photography rut and little things in my garden

Having an ongoing photo project is good, as it helps seeing things around us with a different perspective, noticing details usually overlooked in our day-to-day life.

My ongoing project is about the changes in nature and sky on my way to work with my bicycle. It began in July 2016, around the time I started a new job in Cambridge.

Photos are taken with a mobile phone, and are uploaded on the website at the end of each season. My intention is to finish it by July 2017, but I don’t feel so enthusiastic about it as I have been until the end of last year. Continue reading “Photography rut and little things in my garden”

Hot Numbers Open Exhibition

Starting 12 December 2016, until 22 January 2017, one of my photos is part of the Hot Numbers Open Exhibition in Cambridge.

Boatspotting

Taken on a warm sunny day in May 2016, to me the photo represents contemplation, and the somehow strange and unnatural feeling of being so close to a massive cruise.
