Street Photography, my feelings and approach

“WHEN A PHOTOGRAPHER IS ABLE TO FILTER HIS KNOWLEDGE AND HIS FEELINGS THROUGH THE ART OF WRITING WITH LIGHT, HE WILL BE ABLE TO BE ABSOLUTELY PERSONAL.”

My style is marked by raw street photography images with the obsession of the decisive moment, but always with a documentary eye. I am a photojournalist, but I’m not afraid to call myself a street photographer, because many of my photos are made in the street with an approach and the aesthetic characteristics of this genre. The fact to call myself a street photographer doesn’t affect my creativity.

When I talk about raw images is because I am not interested to present pretty pictures, and never been interested to propose something reassuring for the observer. This is because I am connected with the streets and the streets that I cross often are full of harsh things to see, and I am not going to hide them.

I always photograph with respect. Respect for people and even for the place I am is fundamental.


I think that a good picture should have a mixture of good composition, effective management of light and then a good exposure. But it is not a purely technical discourse. Content is the soul of a photograph.

Street photography for me is simply my way of living and seeing the world. It is about going out with my camera always, even if I go to the supermarket, and capture what attracts me. Some people think it is a photographic genre. For me it is an approach and a way of living photography that allows me to never get tired of having a camera with me.

After all these years as a professional photographer everyday is a new day, just like the first day into this great thing called phoptography.
Street Photography is my life.
This is the reason why I still enjoy and I go out on the street with the same enthusiasm and desire of discovering things.
The fact of being a street photographer influences also my work as a portrait and commercial photographer, and you can see it also in my journalistic coverage.

Street Photography, the good street photography is something that documents, that communicates something about a moment captured by the photographer, and by so much also reveals something about the author of the photo. A good street is a revealing moment, a sublime dichotomy of the ES and the world around us, or at least the perceived one. With this reason you have to be demanding, with the moment captured, if there are true contents or not, if there is a composition worthy of this definition, if the street is genuinely represented and without straining, and for so much communicating that energy that only the street is able to reveal. The photography of street is to represent reality, however we can play with that reality and make it our own, revealing other meaning, perhaps another perspective.

The photograph of the street is direct, you don't stage anything and you have to worry about reacting very quickly, otherwise the moment goes forever. It may seem obvious, but Street Photography is a complex game. Only the photographer aware of this will achieve important results, through a lot of practice and dedication.

If you want to get good good what you want to know when you want to have a good technique and a good time for an excellent knowledge of the camera and the goal.

In addition to a true immersion in the reality that you are photographing, becoming sensitive, empathetic with the environment in which you are working. This is what makes you a different kind of photographer.

Casting Call in Mexico. Hairy girls wanted.  

For a particular editorial projects going against common places

Saturday, 01-01 10:55h - Thursday, 01-20 10:55h

Mexico City

Mexico / North America

Call for models. New artistic editorial photography project. Looking for Hairy girls/women in Mexico City to model for me. Against the stereotypes and cliche on beauty.
After I realized in 2014 the editorial project Mexicana I want to create a new project that defies the clichés of commonly accepted and imposed beauty.

For this artistic portrait project I am looking for women with body hair. Portraits may or may not include nudes, the model decides. Hair on arms, legs, armpits, pubis, face. It is a project that aims to propose something far from the stereotypes and aesthetic impositions of society and I am looking for girls who are motivated and free of problems with this issue. The project wants to be also an empowerment message of the woman, not depending by constraints imposed by society.

The project will take in account the psychology and the desire to get involved in each model, in order to propose a varied and multi-faceted work. For this reason it can include nude or no and it can be simple portraits, nude/erotica, fashion with a provocative approach.

Each work with a model is not related to others, however I want to combine this work with several models to present it on my page and maybe put together a printed book and an exhibition. In accordance with each model we can also carry out interviews and video recording.

The project in general is with TF agreement: to the model I offer the photos of the session / sessions with resolution for the internet use.

Info: [email protected]

I suggest sending a motivational letter with some photos that show you have body hair.

In case you are selected, prepare for a video call and eventually sign a model release.There is no age limit to participate except that of being over 18 years old.

Call always open

Street Photographer and Photojournalist.
Street Photography Workshops and Expeditions in Mexico.
Portrait, Erotica, Fashion.

I am an Italian documentary photographer based in Mexico. In 2013 I worked on assignment for Leica Camera AG, realizing the documentary project “People of Chapultepec” published worldwide in the Leica X brochure. My work in Mexico is focused on the documentation of human conditions in the barrios, popular neighborhoods of Mexico City and I collaborate with some NGO in Oaxaca. Currently my work is represented by Polaris Images and LatinPhoto.

As a Street Photographer I work everyday on the streets. My commitment is to spread the culture of street photography and since 2014 I am publisher of THE STREET PHOTOGRAPHER NOTEBOOK, a printed and electronic edition magazine. I pay the photographers featured.

As a photo coach my street photography workshops in Mexico count with students coming from any part of the world.
