Music at the Elephant – When the Sun goes down

leave a comment »

This is a school project that took place between the 6th and 13th of June. The aim of the “Elephant Project” was to document the area of ​​Elephant and Castle, where the London College of Communication is based. A group of 28 international photographers have captured the life that took place within a week. My choice was to document the music, when the sun goes down. To my great surprise I found the area full of interesting and varied situations. Music, as usual, combines different cultures together. And by the way…who said that Elephant and Castle is dangerous?

Contacts Vol. 2 – Nan Goldin

leave a comment »

Two years ago I attended a really interesting workshop in Rome, runned by Leonie Purchas, one of my favourite photojournalist. Besides the normal lesson, where the class discussed about their portfolio, talked about her work, completed two different assignment and edited all the picture for a final exhibition, she showed us a series of video called “Contacts”, a collection of small video where famous photographers show their contact sheet, talking about their work. One of this video was really touching for me and has made Nan Goldin, one of my favourite photographer ever.

From Contacts Vol. 2, Portraits of Contemporary Photographers:

Don’t miss the second part:

«The work has always been about the condition of being human and the pain, the ability to survive and how difficult that is». (Nan Goldin)
