I started taking pictures when i was young with an analogic Fuji STX2 given to me by my father.
The "sacred truth" is unfortunately that with the coming of digital, using a euphemism, many fans were mere improvised photographers. Mine is not meant to be a polemic, nor want presumptuous, but honestly I think it is necessary to add value to the images, for calling them "photographies."
I think that every "not professional" photographer has taken inspiration from a professional one and my reference point were Cartier-Bresson , Erwitt, Capa and Vivian Mayer.
Photography is an art form and as such, as the same Stanley Kubrick (photographer before director) stated, must be interpreted, so , never exist photographs "good" or "bad".
I' m in contact with many studies for works such as Books, Catalogues, Events.
