Über mich

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.

    Carlo. Thanks for your response. For sure, political issues and climate change - the unpredictable versus the inevitable - is causing tensions in Greece as well, and Australia. The difficulty is what 'the man on the street' can do to change a trend when politicians cannot agree on an effective strategy. As someone said, the only way the world will come to terms with climate change is when people die and that tragedy has begun.
    Keep shooting and cheers from Kaunas :-)
