POP (st)art again (for METABOX)

In the life of a person and in that of an artist, some events happen to be so relevant they can be recognized as soon as they occur. When this is the case, attesting their influence on what will follow from that moment onwards is easy.
Some of my life-changing events are real-life encounters with Pop Art artworks.

The delights of the damned

The delights of the damned (for METABOX)

De-contextualization is one of the dominating themes of my photography, maybe even the most fascinating and recurring one since early my days.
Despite this, the reason why I have always equally and carefully avoided macros and floral subjects is my – very own – impression that these would lead me to fall into an abysmal hole of lacking of originality.

Abstract-in-blue

Abstract in blue (for METABOX)

Who says there must be a reason for everything?
Abstract in blue doesn’t demonstrate a meaning, doesn’t have a left or right or up and down, doesn’t show anything that might be easily or clearly readable.
Why does it strike me so much, then?

Mixtape Vol.3

Mixtape, Vol.3

At long last we have a new compilation for your listening pleasure!
Mixtape Vol.3 has taken me longer than I expected to compile but is quite a collection of very alternative music; as I see it, there is no pop involved this time, even when I throw in Lana Del Rey produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and the soul they have soaked the song in.

Read the post, listen to the tracks, read my words explaining why I chose each song, then let me know what you think.

Games The Shadows Play (for Metabox)

Games the shadows play (for Metabox)

About adding one’s self in one’s own work.
Not a post about the easy fashion of showing yourself for the sake of showing, but about infusing something of your own self in what you do; about being sincere, believing it, having the guts of facing yourself.
And then not being afraid of coming out publicly, too.

Walking in Florence

A Cinamatic video: Walking in Florence

When you are born and have always lived in Firenze, describing what it means to be living in a city as peculiar as this one becomes often impossible.
You are at a loss with words.
But most of all you are so used to be here and be immersed in such a rich environment, that you suffer with some kind of blindness that is procured by habit and daily presence.
