I guess that moving to another city, to another country, is never that easy: you constantly face new challenges and they’re often tougher than you’d expected. Sometimes this might get you completely lost.
A good way to get back on track is just doing the things that you’ve always done, the ones that somehow ‘define’ you as an individual. As far as I’m concerned, photography does thejob: it suffices to find some relaxing view along a river.
There is no such thing as impersonal photography. Each shot you take -even the most abstract one- somehow describes your personality, your attitudes and, eventually, your life.
As a consequence, this collection of pictures does not reflect in any kind of way how Torino really is. It simply describes part of what Torino -I mean, the city as a whole- has been to me in the last three years: fairs, elegant squares and courtyards, the slow and steady flow of river Po, the frantic traffic near the city centre, the night strolls.
I think nothing worthful can be either achieved or done counting exclusively on one’s abilities: everybody needs someone to stand at his/her side in the right moment.
This shot of the Roman amphitheatre of Arles, in Provence, comes from a wonderful trip I did with my friends last year: it’s been a great experience and I want to thank you, Miriam, Luigi and Marco, for having been there with me.
P.S. Thanks for having been patiently seating on those stairs too!
