The process of receiving material for the benedusi competition #02 is going strong.
I have already seen many images, some bad some good some others very interesting. (don’t worry, yours are most definitely in the third category…)
We are still very far from the verdict, which will be more towards the middle of November.
But there is already a biased winner. Who does not win much, if not being published here below. She is only a biased winner for the simple reason, beyond the intrinsic quality of the image: the subject photographed, as you can see, its me. I honestly find it hard to award a photographer that has me as the object. I would feel as if I was taking a bit sides…
Anyways, honour and praise goes to lorena caramia from puglia, to whom I publicly offer my gratitude: thank you!

new section of my website dedicated to backstage, there will be video as well as photographs.
By clicking on the preview below here you will land directly in the eye of the cyclone. For now all these images were taken from the shootings during the years for sports illustrated SA. Most of the photographs are of my previous assistant claudio vignola.

A very interesting weekend, at mr. frankoB’s court extraordinary anglo/italian artist: as “monstruous” as he is kind and affectionate.
His exhibition at milan’s PAC is surely not to be missed.
The curator, francesca alfano miglietti FAM, tells the story in the best way.
I had the honour and the pleasure to follow the preparations for the performance of the artist: before he stepped on stage I kidnapped him for two seconds to snap this portrait.
Thank you frankoB!
