L’esplosione della fotografia, dovuta anche al digitale, ha fatto sì che tantissimi si siano (ri)avvicinati a questo mondo affascinante. E, con esso, sono nati una serie di siti che consentono un po’ di tutto…. Tralasciando quelli che si occupano principalmente di photo sharing mi vorrei soffermare sui siti per i fotografi “amatori”, ossia per tutti quelli che vogliono mostrare il proprio lavoro ad altri “amatori” e/o discutere di tecnica e Fotografia.

Queste mie categorie non pretendono di essere esaustive o complete ma solo di tracciare, simpaticamente, delle distinzioni su cosa aspettarsi quando si entra a far parte di queste Community Virtuali.

Nobody Belives you!

“What is so mesmerizing and pleasing about this photo is the way it seems to transport the viewer to a different time and place. Mr. Cristaldi says of his work, “Taking images is for me a way to transform into physical things my inner visions and memories.” Looking at this image takes you by the hand and guides you into Mr. Cristaldi’s memory and shows you this humorous, sweet, visually engaging scene.” – Jen Bekman on Hey Hot Shot!

The Prize is organized under the sponsorship of the Venetian Academy of Fine Arts, the Region of Veneto, the Province of Treviso, the Municipal District of Mogliano Veneto and the Ascom. It is directed to the promotion of the contemporary figurative art.

I participated to the Contest and have been selected for exhibit in one of the itinerant exhibitions planned for this event.

Yellow and GreenThe purpose of FILE is to collect and display photographs that treat subjects in unexpected ways. Alternate takes, odd angles, unconventional observations – these are some of the ways photographs collected in FILE reinterpret traditional genres. FILE leaves the Kodak Moments to the family album, the glossy fashion spreads to Vogue, and the photo finishes to ESPN. Rather than taking the well-trod paths, FILE veer off to get a different perspective.

My photo YELLOW & GREEN has been published by FILE.
