Portraits

The train boy

Taking portraits is probably one of the most difficult things to do for a photographer. Every person is so special and has so many thing to say to the world that is difficult to show in just one picture who they are.

This is why I love portrait so much. They seems to be a true challenge to
be as good as you can to synthesize in just one shot happiness, illness, fear, rage, carefree, or no matter what and comunicate this kind of status in an emotion to the viewer.

As you will notice at the appropriate time, I prefer to avoid asking permission to people, because they would assume plastic and fake poses, breaking the simplicity and spontaneity that requires a portrait.

This is why you will probably hardly see studio compositions on this website.

I hope you’ll finally enjoy the variety of people that has been caught by my camera.

Stefano

Stefano Sgambati is one of the photographic promises of northern Italy, and he’s one of the best discovers in years and may be considered a real surprise. He’s currently working all around Italy showing his art, photography, cinema and visual arts. Every time I have the occasion and the honour to speak with him, it is always amazing to learn new stuffs thanks to his culture, that is absolutely astonishing. He truly looks like Hemingway to me.

Update: this beautiful picture is one of the many oeuvres of Stefano Sgambati, printed on paper. Well done Stefano!

tkbThe only hope of this world in this time of crisis, climate changes, are the new generations. This is why you’ll find many young people over there. The circle is closed. The power of the Three Rings is ended. The time has come… for the dominion of youth.
