    SHOTS FOR GOODS

    After all the disarray for MC at FORMA I am really in need to cleanse my conscience: my photograph here below will go under the hammer today at 18:00 by the Sotheby’s auction house in Via Broggi 19, Milan.

    For those who love photography and at the same time wants to get a good deal and some charity at the same time this is a very interesting occasion, not much for my “masterpiece” but for the many masterpieces for sale, by great masters (Barbieri!).

    All the info here.

    I, unfortunately, won’t be there 🙁

    MARTINA IN-VISIBLE: SHOW OR MONSTER?

    I wrote and I deleted, wrote and deleted, wrote and deleted. And again wrote and deleted.

    Now is enough, too many words. I think I have explained everything in my presentation.

    I don’t know about you, but in the midst of the disarray of fotografica I boarded a plane, and I flew to Brazil, for work.

    Let’s all be serene with the voice and this shot: you have no clue how cold and windy it was to get this…

    FIGHT CLUB, OR ALL IS BENE ENDS DUSI

    The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club.

    The second rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club.

    The third rule of Fight Club is: if someone says stop, goes limp, taps out, the fight is over.

    The fourth rule about Fight Club is: two guys to a fight.

    The fifth rule about Fight Club is: one fight at the time.

    The sixth rule about Fight Club is: no shirts, no shoes.

    The seventh rule about Fight Club is: fights will go on as long as they have to.

    The eighth rule about Fight Club is: if this is your first night at Fight Club, you have to fight.

    A BIT OF CHAOS DURING THESE DAYS SURROUNDING THE EVENT CURATED BY ME AND MADE BY MARTINA COLOMBARI SHOWING AT THE SPAZIO FORMA.

    THE INTERNET EXPLODING WITH COMMENTS AMONGST WHICH THE KINDEST ONE WAS THAT I’M A DICKHEAD: IT’S TRUE I AM A DICKHEAD!

    THE SUBJECT IS OBVIOUSLY HOT.

    TONIGHT AT 20:30 I WILL BE AT FOTOGRAFICA, AT THE FELTRINELLI SCHOOL, EXACTLY IN FRONT OF THE SPAZIO FORMA.

    YOU CAN COME AND TELL ME EVERYTHING: MAYBE BRING SOME OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS, SO WE CAN SEE THEM TOGETHER, OK?

    I PROMISE, I WILL NOT SPEAK ABOUT MYSELF, I WILL SPEAK ABOUT YOU.

    ALSO BECAUSE HOW CAN I EVER SPEAK MORE AND BETTER THAN MR. TONI THORIMBERT, AFTER HIS MASTER SPEECH OF LAST NIGHT?

    THERE IS NO DOUBT, WITH HIM I END UP FLAT ON MY FACE.

    MARTINA COLOMBARI IN-VISIBILE

    Martina Colombari is in-visible

    Martina Colombari is not a photographer.

    It would be absurd that a serious establishment like spazio Forma (and within a prestigious event like Fotografica!) could host her photographic exhibition.

    You really want to know? Yes, it is absurd.

    Out there we have many photographers who shoot photographs for many years and they would deserve to be exposed here. It is absurd and also a little unjust.

    But it has its precise meaning, which can be of help to understand how, what and why take photographs. To understand what it means to be a photographer today, in 2010.

    To photograph nowadays it also means to have at your disposal wonderful photographic cameras, which take technically perfect photographs.

    Super refined softwares that allow you to correct any mistakes, of the photographer as well as the reality. Any photograph can be made perfect.

    So I find necessary, for who wants to take good pictures, forget that you know how to take photographs. Forget about technicalities. Forget the virtues. Own back a pure look.

    To take everything to the extreme a few months ago we asked Martina to start taking pictures of herself. I didn’t teach her anything, I set the camera to P, and I only asked her to take the photos always horizontally, to have a basic style of uniformity.

    I asked her to forget about the camera, I told her about different female photographers (firstly Francesca Woodman…), and I asked her to simply be true and sincere.

    Above all I asked her to use the camera to explore herself, to make that little box of glass and metal a real instrument to get to know herself.

    Martina was wonderful. Really. In a few days this operation became a “real obsession”, and photographing herself was “the first thing to do as soon as she was awake, and the last thing before falling asleep” (the quoted are her words).

    So magic happened, inevitably: despite the fact that in these years Martina Colombari has been photographed by the best professional photographers, she has managed, photographing herself, to create such real images, so deep and so sensual (without the use of photoshop!) like no other has ever been able to!

    So here is the reason to host her images in these spaces, here is what a non-photographer can teach us: that photography is not only techniques, it is not only using well some refined software, it is not only mega lenses. Photography must be truth and sincerity, as truth and sincere as Martina Colombari has been.

    So true and sincere to have even become in-visible…

    FOTOGRAFICA 2010

    I’ll be waiting for you on the 24th of November, from 18:30, at the spazio forma in Milan for the inauguration of fotografica 2010, the event sponsored by Canon.

    Martina Colombari’s portrait exhibition will be presented, of which I am the curator. I will write about this project again in the oncoming days, because it offers some interesting points for whoever asks himself what it means to be a photographer and to photograph today, in 2010.

    Here is a preview of some images from the exhibition:

    The same night, the 24th at 21:00, for who is interested in listening to a real photographer, I highly recommend to participate to the lesson by Mr. Toni Thorimbert

    : I assure you that you will have a lot to learn. Don’t miss out!

    If by then you are not sated the 25th at 20:30 by the main hall of the Feltrinelli institute (in front of forma) I will be talking there and perhaps will be doing something…

    Anyways this year the calendar

    is very full, there are a lot of initiatives and meetings which are worth seeing: in short go and place your tents in Tito Lucrezio square my dear!
