Best of May 2018 – There are so many ways to narrate with photography! They are certainly more than the languages shown on the Venice Biennale Free Space pavilion!
A tourist must prove his presence in Cannes, so the best evidence for his story is to stand in front of the red carpet of the Palais of the Film Festival, under the vigilance of the security guards. Others decide that it is more important to show the magic of clouds pierced by the sun’s rays over a field of yellow flowers. And still on the light topic, you can underline the charm of the Neo-Gothic facade of the Basilica of Santa Croce in Florence with the help of few apps. Or, by exploiting the simple contrast with the stormy sky, you can enhance the clean lines and no frills of San Vittore Martire church in Locate Triulzi (Milan). Someone experiences worm’s point of view to show how complicated is the vault of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona or to give an unusual and somewhat bizarre vision of the tulips. Or showing his left hand holding a gun, just to tell that he is passionate about shooting and maybe even left-handed. Then there are tales like that one of the pecans field found by the Lilliputians…
A parent captures the daughter who, like a spider, uses her foot to turn on the light. But perhaps it was pride that prompted “daddy longlegs” to shoot.
It is sometimes known that photographs take the words out from their authors’ mouth and so it happens that the famous architect Norman Foster could remain famous especially for … his yellow ocher socks.
