More or less humans. As mentioned in my very short “photo” portrait, nowadays, while the scene remains untouchable, in some of my photographs the humans simply don’t exist, literally and sometimes just scarcely. But that’s just a first impression. Even if humans are not present in flesh and blood in all my frames, the photographs are about them and are telling their story. Like in more classical street photographs, besides the moment itself, a note of humor, irony, sadness can be added in some street “still life” shots.

And that is to catch the flying moment in a frame, a sort of time catcher. Street photography seemed the closest to what I was looking for and today I stick with it and its principles so that the moment should be kept unaltered. In the same way, I try to do my job as an event photographer besides my main job as an accountant.
