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.

    Hi Carlo
    I hope eruptions and floods are not 'restricting your opportunities' in Palermo :-)
    Just invested in a Fujifilm XE4. Heavy snow here for the next few days so I'll have to pick my time to christen it.
    Cheers from All-White Kaunas!

    Hi Carlo. I would be very happy to be in Palermo, even if 'Winter' at this time of year but -14 tomorrow means it's time to polish filters and get ready for 2023. Happy Christmas from Kaunas!

    Danke für dein Lob !
    Wir hatten die Star Clipper immer nur von weitem gesehen,
    aber dank glücklicher Umstände kamen wir dann auf einen knappen Kilometer heran.
    So gelang diese Aufnahme .

    le tue fotografie mi sono piaciute da sempre perchè guardandole si capisce con quale passione sono state realizzate. Le street sono insieme a quelle sportive le fotografie che più mi piacciono, e le tue in maniera particolare. Spero un giorno di incontrarti. Complimenti anche alla tua signora. Le sue foto sono fantastiche e per quanto ho provato non sono mai riuscito a trovare quei colori così particolare e belli. Buona giornata amico mio

    Hi Carlo,
    Kaunas had sun yesterday. I exploited that :-) Today, rain. Possibly winter has arrived and this 'street season' is over? It would be great to have some of your heat and sun but I am satisfied with what I can enjoy. A difficult year for me but things are 'looking up' with high hopes for March or April, 2023. Cheers from Kaunas!

    Ciao Carlo,
    ti ringrazio per aver scelto una mia foto per la gallery, per me è veramente un onore, soprattutto perchè la proposta viene da te, uno dei migliori street reporter che conosco.
    grazie di nuovo
