Here I am, a long time since I last wrote. I was very busy working on a project of mine night and day. This is actually a novel, which is now almost finished and that, I hope, will soon be in bookstores.
Now that I’m no longer worried about the adventures of Isabella and Santiago, I can take care of photography, my greatest passion.
I’ve been housebound for months writing so I had no time to take pictures. I have in my raw folder some shots of the Mont Blanc peaks in clouds, worth to be edited and published, but I only had time to look at these two. others coming soon!
I proposed to Fotoup.net a report on the situation of the Arctic region, between Russia and other countries that want to exploit the immense deposits of oil under the polar cap.
It has been published here.
I arrived here a week ago and I did not waste my time! Between a walk and another, I was surrounded by bright green and the light of these enchanted places. An opportunity to try my new lens, a 70-300 mm. It’s a cheap lens (by the way, I found it second-hand), but in my opinion very practical, lightweight and multi-purpose. I am very pleased with my last purchase!!
Yesterday I was asked to write my short biography to go with an article that will be released soon about “L’Amo”.
I wrote lots of biographies, but never my own. It was not so easy to fit into a few lines writing an entire lifetime! I concentrated on my interest in photography which, on second thoughts, is not just an activity… it’s part of me and represents me. It’s the way I express myself, the way I communicate my vision of life.
Here’s what I wrote:
“After classical studies, she earned a degree in archeology, but her interest is already addressed elsewhere.
Formed first in the school of journalism and then in that of photography, she applies the criteria of the first to the second, using photography to investigate the reality, attempting to return it in the eyes of viewer as objectively as possible and pure.
That’s why she chooses natural light almost exclusively, dropping the use of flash. When not possible, she inserts the artificial light in her pictures clearly and provocatively, to denounce its presence explicitly.
That is to say: no tricks, no cheating.
The sensitivity of the photographer, so attentive to the colors and shapes, blends with the critical eye and the curiosity of the journalist to draw out from daily things a different story every time”.
