Sobre mi

Carlo Pollaci

I am a street photographer.
I am attracted by urban and historians areas, that are the unrivaled scenery theater showing the spectacle of life.
I love photographing people.
I love the beautiful, but I have no hesitation to describing when i encounter the intrusive "ugliness" of everyday. However I avoid situations easy pietism and even more "let alone" the most vulnerable against the society or showing falls of human dignity.
I shoot in the conditions of time and light as I find them, without special technical measures. I do not like poses, neither the exaggerations photographs.
Lately I started to shoot in analog.

In this community I hope, with your help, to improve my English.
I am sorry for the inevitable errors in titles and captions of my photos and thank you for the corrections that you will suggest.

    Enjoying, and learning from/about, all your posts, Carlo. Still waiting for the thermometer to rise so that fingers do not stick to exposed metal on the camera. Snow next week then, if the Russians stay their side of the fence, I can start my 2022 'season'. It's a matter of being patient, in every dimension. Cheers from Kaunas!
