“I più felici sono coloro che vivono giorno per giorno come i bambini (…) “. Dovremmo forse pensare di più a questa frase che Johann Wolfgang Goethe scrisse nel 1774 (I dolori del giovane Werther) quando, quotidianamente, siamo costretti a confrontarci con i problemi che la vita caotica ci propone. In effetti, cosa c’è di più “contagioso” della felicità di un bambino? La foto di Giovanni Torre è bella anche per questo, perché fa “uscire fuori” dallo scatto la gioia irrefrenabile del bambino, felice perché si trova in un parco giochi dove può scatenare la sua voglia di correre e di fantasticare. E’ tutta la posa del bambino a rivelare la sua felicità: il viso sorridente, la corsa, i gomiti chiusi, e questi aspetti Giovanni li ha saputi fissare scegliendo il momento migliore per scattare.

Kadırga-istanbul 2012

The road, a ball and the usual kids. But in this photo Faruken Bayraktare took a peculiar aspect: not the usual run of disordered many legs for the ball, but the singular relationship between “one” child and the balloon. The others are spectators, not participating in the game, and each shows a different attitude: Some people are sitting, perhaps because they are less good at virtuosity, some people are ready to take over, there are those who are standing but with a passive behavior. And different states are well diversified by the different position that the photographer has assigned to them in the frame: the main actor in the foreground and then gradually more distant others, in relation to the role they are having with the game

A Crosswalk !
Written in the earth that seemed to be made by children for their road games. Perhaps instead are the signs of a project that involves the installation of structures that change the face.
Takashi Tachi, refocus priorities on the inscriptions, he played with the geometry of the lines, while creating the optimal division of the frame into two: the colors of pedestrians at the top, the black and white nature of the street below.

The pose is that of prayer, but the attitude of the two teenagers does not shine through meditation that the moment would require. The look of the first guy then fixed to watch the rain falling outside, seems to be asking when he can go out, maybe to run and play.
The beauty of this picture consists in having caught that look, and represented the universal conflict of adolescents between “duty” and “pleasure”. (rewiew by Carlo Traina)

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)
