Bari Tales by Luca Laghetti


“Bari Tales” is a street photography diary in Bari. it tries to tell the city in a different light showing with no filter the raw realism of Bari streets. The biggest challenge for me now is to be able to tell my city, a small and very mistrustful city where a guy with a camera in hand raises more clamor of a gun tucked in his pants.

My way of doing street photography is more of a stomach, instinctive, I’m looking for the immediacy and spontaneity in a situation sometimes even at the expense of technique. What interests me is to communicate, to pass a message.When I take a picture I’m trying to tell a story but not the whole story, the photograph does not have to reveal everything at first glance but you have to be forced to look at it several times to find answers.
