Periferia

Mi piace il modo in cui le maglie della rete sembrano sciogliersi nella luce disegnando i contorni di questi palazzi di periferia. Ho scattato questa foto attraverso una zanzariera.

I like the way the net seem to melt into light, drawing the edges of these suburban buildings. I took this picture keeping the smartphone very close to a mosquito net.

Race in the city, sci di fondo a Milano

Cross-Country World Cup, 14-15 gennaio 2012. Parco Sempione, Milano.

Iniziativa insolita ma di successo, a giudicare dal pubblico presente lungo il circuito allestito al Parco Sempione con vista sul Castello Sforzesco. La gara era valida per la FIS Cross-Country World Cup presented by Viessmann: non una passerella, insomma, ma una competizione vera che ha richiamato parecchi appassionati di sci di fondo. Particolarmente folta e ben attrezzata la pattuglia di tifosi italiani, ma non mancavano supporter svedesi e norvegesi.

Salone del Mobile 2010, Milan – Infinitycandle

Every year the “Fuorisalone” -the event related to Milan’s Salone del Mobile– gives a great chance to take good pictures, by portraying creative objects of unconventional design, color and shapes. Artworks are already fine by themselves …so half of the photograper work is automatically done 🙂

Here’s the first of a series of articles about Fuorisalone …from a photographic point of view, of course.

The flame of a single candle infinitely mirrorred between two semi-reflecting mirrors: Infinitycandle.

The candle stands on a support between two circular semi-reflecting glasses, that bounce flame image in an infinite pattern, changing as you slightly change your point of view.

As simple as fascinating; when I get through the BrilliantAdventures stand at Superstudio Più on sunday morning,  all samples were already sold out.

Not an easy shot for a phototgrapher, due to reflection of the surrounding objects, that you don’t notice while you look, but image sensor reproduces. Continua a leggere

Salone del Mobile 2010, Milan – The transformer

The Transformer. Studio Re-creation, Nikola Nikolov

A former Lada Samara Diva (yes, a real car!) has just been re-created and even the Transformer seems surprised of this metamorphosis, asking himself “who am I?”. Picture taken at Tuttobene during Fuorisalone Zonatortona.

Salone del Mobile 2010, Milan – Puzzled table

Every year the “Fuorisalone” -the event related to Milan’s Salone del Mobile– gives a great chance to take good pictures, by portraying creative objects of unconventional design, color and shapes. Artworks are already fine by themselves …so half of the photograper work is automatically done 🙂
Here’s another article about Fuorisalone …from a photographic point of view, of course.

Puzzled table, design by Emma Klinkenberg - Picture taken at "Tuttobene", Fuorisalone Zona Tortona 2010.

Table top is formed by fifteen slide puzzle pieces. These pieces can slide until the lines of the wood fit exactly together (table top comes from a single wood piece, effect is very nice to be seen). Underneath each piece, there is space to store objects: a tidy table above, all objects below.

Also the stool works on the same principle, but…

…what’s the right color?

Main problem to face during Fuorisalone -for a photographer, of course…- is probably color balance. Continua a leggere
