In a new space. NY, 26-30 June.
I decided to take a break from the countryside in which I live in northeastern Italy, to immerse myself in the multiculturalism of the American metropolis.
Free to spend five days and dedicate to what is my greatest passion, street photography.
The first night at the pub in Brooklyn I met a guy, who immediately told me “Hey dude, don’t visit New York, live it!”.
Inside me I tried to live so totally Manhattan, walking in a sort of reality without space and time. I felt that I lived moments without coordinates, living instants on Wall Street that reminded me of Harlem and passing between Brooklyn and Manhattan as if they were dilated spaces.I let the city enter me photographing what I felt, free to look for tragicomic life and details, trying at the same time to document a cross-section of American society.
I really thank to the wonderful people I met this week on the street and in the evening!
