Publication - Interview with Ken Follett

Some time ago I was on assignment for Donna Moderna and I had to take some pictures of  Ken Follett interviewed by journalist Jusy Locascio.
The article was on the magazine last week.

News - London Olympics 2012

I haven't been inside the main venues where the Olympics took place but I have been photographing many situations related to the event. I went to see the arrival of the Torch in London passing through Hackney, where only one year ago there was the riot. And I found an incredible atmosphere, a very beautiful parade. For the opening ceremony I went to the BT Live Event in Victoria Park, very close to the Olympic Stadium. There was a 70 square metres screen and about 20.000 people with their eyes stuck on it. Then I went to check what was happening in South Bank, one of the main touristic spots of London. For the 200 metres final I went to the Jamaican House at the O2 Arena, what a great place to watch it: Bolt, Blake and Weir.  - ONE, TWO, THREE! - all the Jamaicans were screaming lifting up the  three fingers on their hand. Then I couldn't miss the Italian House where I went on the last day.

Pictures in a drawer - Egypt

Just before the Arab Spring took off I was in Egypt, on holidays.
Now, after all that happened, I find there is a subtle connection between this poem
and the pictures I took relating to the present ...

drylands by Yahia Lababidi

Tell me, have you found a sea
deep enough to swim in
deep enough to drown in

waters to engage you
distract you, keep you
from crossing to the other shore?

News - Appleby Horse Fair

This past weekend I went to Appleby-in-Westmorland to experience the horse fair that takes place there every year. It greatly fulfilled my expectations. The situation was a bit chaotic but very friendly and I met a lot of great people. Also the landscape was very beautiful. It was a great break from the city.

News - Jubilee Family Festival at Hyde Park


 Yesterday I was in Hyde Park taking pictures of the Jubilee Family Festival, one of the many events for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The weather had been merciful as we got just few drops of rain on our heads and even a great light, sometimes, spreading through the clouds over the crowd. Being an Italian, I was quite surprised to see all these people united under the national flag.
