Street

In my opinion, street photography is perhaps the most authentic photographic discipline. This is said, of course, without trying to take something away from other types of photography. The proof is, however, that some of the photos that have gained immortality in the history of photography - by Cartier-Bresson, Ruth Orkin, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Robert Doisneau, Elliott Erwitt and many others - are street photos.

Quintessentially speaking, street photography is the discipline that best represents the well-known concept of "seize the day". With studio photography - portraits, food, fashion and everything else - the photographer can "easily" create a scene to produce the right shot. He can instruct the people involved and adjust the lightning to create the right atmosphere. This is not the case in street photography, where a series of unpredictable elements - people, moving objects, sun, light, shadow, and so on - all play a role in the final result.

Street photography is really the discipline that requires the greatest ability in terms of "a photographic eye" and alertness in a bid to capture the shot that will tell a small story about real life.

The street photos in this gallery are mainly from Roma, Firenze, Napoli and Palermo.
