Quando si dice che non serve la migliore Reflex per scattare una buona foto!
La situazione era troppo originale per farsela scappare, e così Fabrizio Quercia ha usato quello che aveva a disposizione in quel momento: la fotocamera del suo telefonino.
Rimane la curiosità di capire perché l’uomo anziano sia salito con le ginocchia sul banco dell’edicola: in cerca di una rivista nascosta, per una moneta caduta?
Il bello della singola immagine, a differenza del cinema, è che lascia sempre all’osservatore la fantasia di decidere lui cosa sia successo “prima” e “dopo” lo scatto, e costruirsi così – in molti casi – anche il “perché”:

When things looks prety much in order,
always make place for the unexpected 
Firenze, Italy
Superb image, mirror of our cities, with thousands (often millions) of people who live in them, that animate the streets, in the subways, skyscrapers in crowded used for offices. But the case however, that once represented the “center” of people’s lives have become huge dormitories, where you return only in the evening and where you live a few hours each day.
The shot of Orly Danieli tells us this: windows closed, curiously aligned in a geometry involuntary, with a single person to symbolize the loneliness and anonymity that we often hear when we go back and re-enter the workplace in our buildings, where the most of the time we do not know the neighbors upstairs.

A little game with the prospect, and the woman with the bag becomes part of the large poster behind her, merges and enters the frame. Huge eyes staring at her and try to learn their thoughts, or maybe her thoughts that materialize in the face “silent”.

In the photo of Fred Trobrillant are the eternal connection between real life and virtual represented in large posters that fill our cities.

Comparing Notes : From Master to Newbie Jakarta Indonesia
In the middle of the degradation of a street in Jakarta stand the three carts parked neatly one after the other, with their load “differentiated” (boxes, bags, …). The pastel colors of the carts, the shutters, the insignia, they create an environment that probably goes on living a life in black and white. (rewiew by Carlo Traina)

But who is more “human” in this photo? The driver or three dogs that clearly interact with each other? If anyone still has doubts on the intelligence and sensitivity of the animals, seeing this shot can not change his mind! A dog that side and two on that … “greet” standing still motionless on the road, how could be – between “human beings” – in any train station.

To survive, people do anything, like crush cans to sell as metal.
We are used to seeing, even in the richest cities of the western world, people who rummage in garbage bins to find objects to recover and resell, but this scene taken in Cuba has its own originality: the object was “invented” by the boy to crush cans (and then store it more easily), and especially his work, with children and other people who observe it without help, as if the activity had need special experience … and expertise. Effective choice of wide angle to include in the frame the many elements of the scene.(rewiew by Carlo Traina)

Sciuscià from New York….
“Povertà organizzata” … una volta gli “Sciuscià” si incontravano soprattutto per strada (e in molte città del mondo è ancora così), qui Luigi Sannino ci mostra un angolo di New York dove è possibile farsi pulire le scarpe al coperto, su comode poltrone. L’immagine che ne esce è quella di una attività organizzata, con le scarpe sul ripiano, la gente in fila, i clienti che sembrano appartenere alle più diverse classi sociali. Ma poi c’è il volto in primo piano che – sebbene fuori fuoco – ci riporta alla realtà e ci sottolinea come sia sempre la povertà a spingere gli “Sciuscià” a questo tipo di lavoro.
