I like to read. unfortunately I do it less than I’d like to, but luckily I do it more often than the statistics say about italians: 12% of families do not have even one book in the house and 37% of the population above 6 years of age have not read even one book in the past year. well done!
a population that reads is surely a better population.
I don’t know if a person that reads is better, but has at least the privilege to see and know the world from a point of view that possesses a real quality: not your own point of view.
all of this, perhaps useless, rigmarole is a premise of a book I’ve just finished reading: THE GUGA HUNTERS.
I liked it a lot.
no, I don’t feel like it and I fear I am not able to write the review that it deserves. but when you find a book that is fun, scares, moves, excites, makes you discover new things (the guga!) and even makes you want to leave for scotland I think you just have to share it.
thanks to everyone who participated, thanks photoshow, thanks daria and pasquale, thanks fabio, thanks to ubaldo dino mancuso and thanks justine mattera for my “self portrait” taken this afternoon: THANK YOU!
I have already written about me participating to the photoshow which will take place next week in milan.
two very important updates for sunday, when I will be shooting live:
– its with great honour that I will share the stage with one of the photographers, actually THE most famous and celebrated italian photographer in the world. his work has been published in almost all the italian and international magazines. he has shot major worldwide campaigns for incredible brands. his new york agent was willing to divulge his name even before the event, unfortunately his agent in los angeles was adamant and has prohibited us to mention his name, to avoid predictable advertising speculations. I can only put up two tiny images, masking his face. I am sorry, but his presence on stage will repay the mystery. I am so excited!
– the presence of the illustrous guest almost overshadows our second piece of news: the beautiful justine mattera will be my model for sunday’s shooting!
I have finally been able to release a new episode for SHOOTING my iphone app, this time on the outdoor’s natural light, made in santo domingo on the set of sportweek dreams, with the beautiful cristina.
even this time firstly there is my quick lesson with the possibility afterwards (virtually) to take your turn in shooting as if you were on set with me, then quickly retouching the shots taken (we have increased and improved the filters available) and you can then share your photograph on the various social networks.
