A propos de moi

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.

    I enjoy your gallery and share your joy in photographing the street scenes. I also love the people who like to be photographed without posing specifically. Thank you for your interest in my pictures from Asia, where I always like to take pictures of the people who enjoy them. Greetings and best wishes from Bangkok Wolfgang

    Hi Carlo
    I hope eruptions and floods are not 'restricting your opportunities' in Palermo :-)
    Just invested in a Fujifilm XE4. Heavy snow here for the next few days so I'll have to pick my time to christen it.
    Cheers from All-White Kaunas!

    Hi Carlo. I would be very happy to be in Palermo, even if 'Winter' at this time of year but -14 tomorrow means it's time to polish filters and get ready for 2023. Happy Christmas from Kaunas!

    Danke für dein Lob !
    Wir hatten die Star Clipper immer nur von weitem gesehen,
    aber dank glücklicher Umstände kamen wir dann auf einen knappen Kilometer heran.
    So gelang diese Aufnahme .
