Carlo is young and has talent. He tries to experiment and do it the right way. Here it is, his interview and his photos. Enjoy it.
- Remember your first picture?
My first picture dates back to August 2000 and has been done on the top floor of the twin towers (NY), I picked up a scene of daily life in the Japanese restaurant.
- What was your first camera?
An analogic Konica Minolta 5000 AF.
- If there wasn’t photography in your life, where would you be now?
Certainly I wouldn’t be the person I am now, because I believe that photography has helped me not to dwell only on what is being proposed at first glance, it pushed me to look more deeply and to be able to see things from a different poin of view, being able to be open-minded.
- Choose one of your photos and tell us the story behind it.
This picture (the first in the gallery) was taken inside the Hindu temple in Singapore. While visiting the temple, I saw this man’s deep in pray, with this shot I wanted to take his personality, not only his expression. This shot is for me a moment of reconciliation with ourselves and I wanted to share this moment that I was given!
- Tell me who was one of your masters and the name of a photographer to follow on your advice.
Don McCullin for his skill in telling the lower classes of society, depicting the unemployed, the oppressed and the poor; Elliot Erwitt for the naturalness and spontaneous poses that managed to capture in his photos, Robert Doisneau who managed to capture a heady Paris with easy virtue, managing to convey a new zest for life despite the possible adverse events that marked our lives. I particularly like the Paris photographs by Daniel Malleo
