Gazebook in (some) photos

Massimo Cristaldi News

A photobook festival in southern Sicily on the seaside is really something peculiar, that doesn’t happen always. Or, should I say, that never happened before. The location chosen is Punta Secca, “Dry Cape”, a piece o land that lays on a wondeful see not far from Scicli. The name of the event is Gazebook. So, at the beginning of a …

Ocoloy, April 2015

Massimo Cristaldi Essays

My Ocoloy for April has been partially tampered by my broken(!) Ricoh. Yes, it stopped working so I had to send it back for fixing. Hence, in April, I really missed it. Fewer shots in this month, some of them taken with Sony A7r+35mm. Indeed, it was fun for a number of reasons. I love shooting at night and hence …

6 Mesi con la Ricoh GR

Massimo Cristaldi Cameras and accessories, Photography as Technique

Non ho mai fatto segreto della mia passione per le piccole macchine. Avere la possibilità di portare sempre con sé una macchina fotografica vera è una cosa che mi è sempre piaciuta, convinto, come sono, che le migliori fotografie si manifestano quando meno te l’aspetti e poterle cogliere solo con uno smartphone (per quanto sofisticato) è davvero un peccato, soprattutto …

After January and February here is the OCOLOY for March. I’m shooting 70 pics per week and select, printing, 8 of them per month. I’m using just a small Ricoh GR (28mm f/2.8) and process the photographs to polaroid look&feel.

I’m shocked by what happened in a country full of warmth and humanity. I keep my memories of what Tunisi(a) really is, hoping that this would not stop tourism that is so important for a fragile economy.

Massimo Cristaldi Essays

Photography must be fun. So together with the “big”, long term projects, that somehow drain energy, I’m enjoying a One Camera, One Lens, One Year Project. For 2015, I’m shooting 70 pics per week and select, printing, 8 of them per month. I’m using just a small Ricoh GR (28mm f/2.8) and process the photographs to polaroid look&feel. You can …

DVAFoto: Touch Ground

Massimo Cristaldi Published works

DVAFoto published today a short interview on Touch Ground. Have you made any news reportage of the immigration story in Italy? Not really “news” reportage in the sense that I like to come back to a place after the happenings. I believe there are too many screaming photos of desperate people on those “hope boats” and, as often happens, we’re …
