Italian Alessandro Rocky takes pictures as if his every shot is pre-filled with caramel. He skillfully turns ordinary street shooting into a carnival of bright pictures: summer, boats, seagulls and jumps into the water.
- I started taking pictures when I was a teenager. One day my father shot me and my friends against the background of our house in the village - and I was inspired by his work and the shooting process itself.
I worked at a web agency for 14 years, and then I was assigned to shoot for one of our clients. It was a very special report for me: the factory donated woodworking equipment to the community of San Patrigno - a place where young people with drug addiction are trying to fix and rebuild their lives.
I found myself in a street photo. I love to shoot those who do not pose, I’m curious to catch some unexpected revelation. My style is to make sure that a person does not in any way see that I photograph him: only then can I achieve the desired effect.
I take a lot of pictures, but I don’t earn a photo: I work in the financial industry. My projects publish - basically there are reports after traveling. I’ve got some pretty good reports on trips around Thailand, Ethiopia, Ghana and the former Yugoslavia.
In the former Yugoslavia, I visited Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia. Memories of war and violence are fresh in every country. Every building, every face of a passerby expresses the consequences of these terrible events.
I also like to photograph because every time I discover a new culture, traditions, lifestyle.
