A walk in the Old Town
This series focuses on streets you go to, not go through. These images make me think back to a quote by DeGrazia when reflecting on modern life, he said:
“Lean back under a tree, put your arms behind your head, wonder at the pass we’ve come to, smile and remember that the beginnings and ends of man’s every great enterprise are untidy”.
[Foreword by Joanne Carter]

The people are no longer the same as when I was a child. The world is changing. The certainties of the past no longer exist and the important things (the ones that make a man really great) have changed. Family, love, friendship, work. The digital man has changed his relations with others and with the world around him. The digital man walks uncertainly in my images, his body has lost the sincerity of the lines and now the figure is mentioned, thin, unreal.
“Men and women with no time stopped in a moment of their lives … while they phone, talk, walk, sit at a table to drink a coffee”
They live in the city, they move, but who can say what are their thoughts? Fears, doubts, and above all hope and promise of a better future .. They still have a common need basically, the same as always, what makes a man great and invincible, the need of love.
All images were taken with Slow Shutter app. I used this app for some years and it is among my favorites. The effect changes when I use Low Light or Light Trail mod. I try to shoot the moving subject because in Low Light mod the figures become thin and stylised. This is the effect which I prefer. In addition, as always, in my work, colour is very important. Pastel, pink. aviation blue, pale yellow. Working with colors, their combinations form a nice balance to the eye. This is the most important work for me. The colour designs, color expresses deep emotions.
All photos were taken in Cagliari (Italy) with my iPhone 6.
