Italian summer

It's quite surprising how much the number of interesting Italian photographers has increased in the last year. I guess it's all slightly based around the growth of fotografi di strada, the Italian street photography group. I'll misrepresent them as mischievious little buggers with very direct shots and some sense of humour. So as for trying to get simplistic tags that other people can misrepresent as well.

I guess this summer I can be expecting more of the same. Plus the oddities of hardcore animal farm photography. Hum.

Yeah, but it's hard to misrepresent the Italian wave using diada's pictures, Philip!

i would never thought that one day i would have be a part of an italian wave of something... it's the right moment to stop working, buy a motorcycle, put all money in the lateral bags of it and drive east until the money lasts. thanks joni!
