About me

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.

    Thankyou for favouriting cocklawburn 2.
    For me - it was the transition in colour from bronze to blue that appealed to me , in that view.
