3rd Place to IPA Awards 2016 - CRACK UP

The project develops the theme of Laughter: the most direct, easy and universal tool we own to transmit positive vibrations to the outside and transform our psychophysical mood into optimal well-being. Nowadays, scientific research have demonstrated the health benefits of laughter. It helps to get rid of negative energy, and it's also one of the most efficient means of communication between humans. Laughter therapy is a kind of treatment that show most of the powerful benefits of laughing. I organised a special session that mingled laughter therapy with the help of two instructors and photography, involving a mixed group of people from different countries. During the two hours workshop, the participants/models were given the chance to experience the immediate pleasure and benefits of laughter, its releasing power and its characteristic generation of happiness. https://vimeo.com/123312550 password: Exhibit-it “Crack up” is a series of guffaws: it shows moments of happiness and vulnerability induced by viral laughter.

Honorable Mention 2016 - Categorie: Architecture: Interiors

I am really happy to this wonderful news. In particularly to create this image I spend 4hours in the stage to to harmonise and balance the elements and draw the set of light.

 This image is part of a series of image for the commissioned project to present the value of the Interior design retailers and furniture store Little House Cottage of Barcelona. The idea of the picture is to present the huge diversity and originality of objects the costumers can find in the shop. The purpose is a living room with a strong personality and a masculine arrangement. The composition of this image is a meticulous and careful selection of pieces of furniture in a harmonic and balanced distribution. An accurate lighting set benefits the warm atmosphere in the scene and the postproduction finalised the image. 

GRAZIE X TUTTO DARIO

Today Dario Fo leave us to go to Franca Rame and create, play, act their wonderful talent and profoundness.

Dario Fo born in a little village in my province of Varese in the north of Italy. He and his wife Franca Rame are my adoptive grandparents. They spend all their life to create, produce and show theatre.

You can’t thinking in Dario without Franca. How Franca said : How you know my husband is a Monument and I, I am the base of this Monument. ejejeje

In 1997 Dario Fo won the Nobel Prize of Literature and it was incredible for a comedian as him to receive this high award.

I remember a beautiful speech he made longtime ago in a library in Milan. He presented his new bookbut with his easy way of speech he drive all the audience in a other world full of color, music, heart. Every word are complete optimistic and positive. And when he was overtime he spoke about the reaction of Franca and you can see just a man full of passion for everything he live in his life.

Dario act, work, produce, write, draw … until the end of his days.. He died 13 octubre 2016 at 90 years old. 

Know How to Live the Time that is Given You.

It is extremely dangerous to talk about limits or borders. It is vital, instead, that we remain completely open, that we are always involved, and that we aim to contribute personally in social events.


A theatre, a literature, an artistic expression that does not speak for its own time has no relevance.

Our Homeland is the Whole World. Our Law is Liberty. We have but one thought, revolution in our hearts.

Analogic Photographic Manipulation: Sir Jerry Uelsmann

Jerry Uelsmann is an American photographer born in 1934 and the forerunner of Photomontage in the 20th century in America.

Jerry Uelsmann is a master printer, producing composite photographs with multiple negatives and extensive darkroom work. He uses up to a dozen enlargers at a time to produce his final images, and has a large archive of negatives that he has shot over the years. Uelsmann does not carry multiple attachments, but only one camera, "Most photographers carry many cameras with multiple attachments. Most photographers have one enlarger. I have half a dozen." When beginning to create one of his photomontages, he has a strong intuitive sense of what he's looking for, some strategy for how to find it, and an understanding that mistakes are inevitable and are part of the creative process. His process begins after a day of shooting. He returns to his work station in his home and covers a large drafting table with hundreds of proof sheets. He folds and overlaps various contact prints, explores the visual possibilities, then brings the options into his darkroom. He then sets his selected pieces into the large number of enlargers that he owns in his darkroom, and moves the photo paper progressively down the line, building up an image.

Hopper Meditations Series - Richard Tuschman.. Chapeau

 

Big and Loud Applause to the Hopper Meditations Series of Richard Tuschman. I really love it!

Hopper Meditations is a personal photographic response to the work of the American painter, Edward Hopper. Tuschman has long admired the way Hopper's paintings, with an economy of means, are able to address the mysteries and complexities of the human condition. Placing one or two figures in humble, intimate settings, Hopper created quiet scenes that are psychologically compelling with open-ended narratives.To Tuschman, the lighting acts as another character, not only illuminating the form of the figures, but also echoing and evoking their inner lives. Obviously as he did in the last three decades, all the pictures are deep of this talent to create poetic photographic images.
