A trip to Fortaleza

A friend of mine and I spent four days in a small village two hours north of Fortaleza, in Aracati. From time to time Josef and I escape Europe to have some days off, talking about design and photography, about up coming projects, about life and kids. We found ourselves waking up very early due to the jet-lag and walked around for hours after hours, slow, and silent. The place was just about colors. The afternoons we would drive around listening to Radiohead and Daft Punk.

A Trip to West Ukraine

Chernitvsi, Yaremche, Lviv and Kiev. I spent most of my summer holidays traveling in a place where, except for Kiev, marketing tourism has not arrived yet. Being a tourist in West Ukraine, however, it’s more or less like being in another time: cars are the same of 30 years ago, people still farm in their own land and most of the families got a cow. In the city they live in a very simple way too. The war is still there, in the East part of the Country, and you can feel it even if newspapers don’t tell you. I documented places and stories of Ukraine that defined my travel.

Holi and Lath Mar Holi festival in Mathura, India

Holi is a spring hindu festival celebrated in India in which everyone throws brightly coloured powder and liquid paint on each other to celebrate. It’s also known as the “festival of colours”. We were lucky enough to celebrate Holi in Mathura, which is the birth-place of Lord Krishna. According to the legend, Lord Krishna was concerned about Radha being of a lighter complexion to him, so his mother advised him to go to her and apply colours. As Lord Krishna and his friends went to Radha‘s village to apply colour to Radha and to the other women there, the Gopis used to beat them with sticks in a playful manner. The tradition continues until this... Read More

A trip to Stromboli

Suffering from heat and nausea for several hours in a row, finally I’m approaching the Island. As soon as the sun disappears behind the flat top of volcano, the noon is turning into a sunset not even having time to arise. In this light the ash-black sand of the shore is merging with the blackness of the sea, forming an image of a solar eclipse in the middle of a summer day. Suddenly I am freezing. Looking in her eyes I can see Her freezing too. The nausea recedes, leaving a place for voiceless admiration. All the colors disappear; the shadows merge with the ground.

A gangway takes us to the coast. This is Stromboli – a... Read More

A trip to Kyrgyzstan

Kaji-Say is a small seaside resort city. The lake on which it is situated has been a destination for Kirghiz, Kazakhs and Russian tourists since the 70’s. A few hotels and old infrastructures that still have communist vibes are located on the beach. But the soviet union let another legacy to the town : just behind the touristic facilities, on the mountains, remains a huge pile of uranium wastes. At each rainy period, this pile threatens to pour some radioactive elements into the lake and contaminate the whole region.

A trip to Puerto Rico before hurricane Irma

A Space between Sand and Clouds

The calm before the storm. I was in Puerto Rico for the first time this summer, a couple of days after my departure Irma hit the island causing terrible damages, some places I have visited will never be the same. Puerto Rico is an universe suspended between sand and clouds, Puerto Rico is contradictions: little towns isolated into the tropical forest, uncontaminated nature and stinky suburbs, breathtaking views, cristalline waters, the kindness of the people and the economic crisis that has lasted for the last 10 years, old traditions and the American fast foods. Puerto Rico is an island where Spain, Africa, and the Caribbean culture come together. A contemporary... Read More

A trip to Asia

Earlier this year I travelled from Tokyo to Kyoto, Osaka to Naoshima back to Tokyo and ended up in Shanghai. It was my first time in Asia and while being amazing by the obvious (for the Western eye that has never been to places like this before) all the straight lines constructed by nature and by humans really got my attention. Not being able to fully read your surrounding makes you focus on the small things, which are often overlooked in our day to day life.

A trip to the outskirts of Cuba

A trip to the outskirts of Cuba

Cuba is where streamline never left, it is a memorabilia of 50’s american architecture and design, with hidden pearls scattered all around the island. It is a country of entrepeneurs and lovers. You will never see anyone begging for money and you will never witness the death of an american classic car. A land where the past is present.
However, Cuba is also an island of alienating infrastructure in which human souls can get lost. Havana, for instance, is surrounded by tongues of concrete, deserted plazas and inhabitated mid-century structures among which the iconic seafront curvy hotels with their empty pools. The outskirts of Cuba is where dreamy land turns into an urban dystopia. It... Read More

New York subway series

New York subway series

It’s easy to get lost in the big picture, especially while commuting, to be thinking about the next stop, where you need to be, or how late you’re running. With photographs, you have the ability to stop time. While I’m on the subway, I usually feel rushed, cramped, uninspired, but this series was a way to slow things down and tap into the emotion and lives of those around me – Nick DeLieto

A trip to North-East state Nagaland during Aoling festival, India

A trip to North-East state Nagaland during Aoling festival, India

The Aoling festival is a festival celebrated in Nagaland, one of the seven sister states in North-eastern India. Every year in the first week of April the Konyak tribe gather in Mon to celebrate the arrival of spring and pray for a good upcoming harvest.

Nagaland, which is located on the border with Myanmar, is known for its headhunting, which was still happening as recently as 1969 when the Christians came to Nagaland. When a member of the Naga tribe beheaded someone they were given a tattoo on their chest as a trophy of the event.

Nowadays, the Naga people can be seen with piercings and facial tattoos and brightly colored tribal patterns selling handicrafts and smoking... Read More
