ABOUT THE PHOTO I’ve always seen the rain not as “bad weather”, but as an amplifier of emotions. I like to take photos under the rain to create a sort of dreamlike reality. It’s not accidental that the girl in this image, that I called “Little Red Riding Hood”, seems to be profoundly alone. With this photo I tried to capture a melancholy never fully taking shape, but which is there, latent, in everyone life, evoking a sense of human isolation, a common feeling in large cities.
THE PRIZE for the WINNER is GR III Street Edition – Special Limited Kit.
