Pandora’s box

“Only Hope was left within her unbreakable house,
she remained under the lip of the jar, and did not
fly away.” Hesiod, Works and Days

Memories are the evils of a suffering heart.

International Jewellery London

I love jewels and you can guess how happy I was to take photos at the International Jewellery in London, last September, for Source Culture Company (www.sourceculture.co.uk). Great designers, sparkling gems and interesting events (also a catwalk you’ll see below) made our day!

My secret sorrow

“What is the meaning of life? That was all – a simple question; one that tended to close in on one with years. The great revelation had never come. The great revelation perhaps never did come. Instead there were little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectedly in the dark.” To the lighthouse, Virginia Woolf.

Endeavour: behind the scenes II

Yesterday I was organizing my old photographs, with the idea to re-build my website, and I found these… Almost one year has passed since I had the pleasure to take photographs on “Endeavour” tv series set, and I must say I really love the images I captured there. I surprisingly realized how many photos I did not share, so now I am here for you to have a look at them!

A happy family photo shoot

Although I mostly share my personal works in this blog, today I want you to have a look at some of the photos I took last August to a lovely family, here in Oxford. I already had the pleasure to meet them in June, and I must say that working with them is so relaxing and fun that I am looking forward to other commissions like this one. Now enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the park, the cheerfulness of the children, the love, and the laughs!

In ascolto della terra

“Tu sei come una terra

che nessuno ha mai detto.

Tu non attendi nulla

se non la parola

che sgorgherà dal fondo

come un frutto tra i rami.

C’è un vento che ti giunge.

Cose secche e rimorte

t’ingombrano e vanno nel vento.

Membra e parole antiche.

Tu tremi nell’estate.”

Cesare Pavese, 29 Ottobre 1945,
