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.

    Hi Carlo. Thanks for the ongoing interest/support.
    We have been 'suffering' Sicilian-type heat here in Kaunas which means this old boy stays on the shade and reworks old files - 2016 etc etc! Cooler weather is coming because I read the crows have already migrated to Germany and the storks are strengthening their long distance flying techniques before heading for Spain on or around August 24. This means Autumn is close and more real time for the KaunasKiwi on contemporary streets :-)

      Sono rientrato un attimo qui solo per risponderti, visto che per qualche disguido tecnico non mi è stato più possibile rinnovare l'abbonamento qui e mi sono dovuto "rifugiare"  sulla .DE..... Ancora complimenti !

    Per prima cosa ti informo che mi sono trasferita in GB nonostante la variante del Covid (solo du FC, ovviamente).
    Poi ti dico che è ormai da un anno buono che neppure io ho scattato più una foto, e quello che posto è tutto di archivio.
    Last but not least: guardo sempre quello che pubblichi anche se fotomodelli, auto e sport non mi offrono appigli facili per commentare. Al di là di questo potrei comunque scriverti un semplice "bella" sotto ogni foto, perchè in effetti trovo le tue  foto di qualità eccellente, a prescindere dal soggetto, solo che lo troverei un po' riduttivo rispetto al nostro standard.
    Auguriamoci che la situazione migliori, e se invecchiamo, fortuna nostra!
  • Graeme Allan 4. Januar 2021, 16:26

    Thanks for all the positive comments, Carlo. I appreciate your input.
    Very difficult conditions here - climatic and C19 - so, as is my winter habit, I revisit old files and see if I can improve my first edits.

    Cheers from Kaunas!
