A Tale of Two Cities

December 18, 2017

Like every large metropolis, there is an outside and underground life. Two different cities that are both open and hidden: it’s on this world that I focused my camera for 6 months. The subway is a second world – hidden, dark and dirty – where people spend a non-negligible time of their day regarding their […]

Color of the Streets

June 27, 2017

We live in a world full of colors and beauty, which is exactly the feeling that “Colors of the Streets” wants to spread and share. With this short series of street photos, I try to capture the essence and the contrast of colors in the streets. The urban environment is full of colors and we, […]

June 13, 2017

Between 3,000 and 6,000 homeless people are on the streets of downtown’s Skid Row on any given day, the largest concentration of homeless people in the United States. On July 4, 2016, a national day of celebration, I drove to Skid Row to document and to draw attention to this dire situation. As my backdrop, […]

Jens Krauer: Embracing the Evolution

May 17, 2017

Jens Krauer’s images are packed with so much emotion and stunning light – and composed so precisely yet with breathtaking spontaneity – that they appear both sculpted and alive, vibrating with raw energy. In fact, his personal credo is “share emotions not pixels.” A high contrast shot of a glass of water against sunlight, shot […]

Four Days in Rome

May 9, 2017

Dialogue I always liked ancient films about Rome starting from Ben Hur up to Gladiator. I can’t count how often I watched these films. Now I had the possibility to stay in Rome for four days, not only to visit the breathtaking monuments like the Colosseum but also to observe the people on the street. […]

Traveling in Iran

April 18, 2017

A mullah from the madrese Khan in Shiraz, one of the oldest koran schools in Iran. As you can read in our newspapers almost every day, Iran is considered as one of the “axis of the evil” countries. Just a funny situation I have seen in the streets of Shiraz. Only at second glance I […]

The Unknown Scene

January 3, 2017

It doesn’t matter for what reason I’ve left home. It doesn’t matter where I’ve come from and where I’m going. What matter is that I’m on a street or another public area. Streets are full of mysteries. Full of life, the real life. Sometimes the street is just like a movie. The scene and the […]

Subway Therapy

December 9, 2016

As an avid street photographer, I almost always take my camera with me. Whether it’s a quick errand or a day long adventure, I reach for my DSLR, making sure the battery is charged, and nestling it in my bag or pocket. My “wandering” eye rarely stops looking for decisive moments to record, knowing full […]

Blurring and Motion

November 29, 2016

This is a collection of some of the photos taken in 2016, in which I tried to record and freeze some photographs in public areas in several places with a street photography style and a blurring and motion approach. The photographs, which very simply emphasize the style to take pictures, give a touch of imagination […]

The Mission District Project

November 22, 2016

San Francisco has always been an inspiration for me and my photography – a place that breathes art and creativity and has seen countless brilliant minds and ideas – one of the few real timeless cites still alive in the world today. To be able to photograph a place like that was something that had […]

The Parisienne

November 2, 2016

I like to take horizontal black and white film picture. This timeless sense of the black and white and especially the film fascinates me. We can take a picture in 2016 but thanks to the black and white, the picture is full of mystery as to the time. I shoot with a Nikon FG – […]
