Sometimes that sense of estrangement that catches you when you are far away from home, in a new and unknown place, among people who do not speak your language and signs that you do not understand

Sometimes that sense of estrangement that catches you when you are far away from home, in a new and unknown place, among people who do not speak your language and signs that you do not understand, can be a precious source of creativity and inspiration.

Riccardo Magherini, an Italian awarded photographer, plays with that feeling letting himself wandering with.

His unique street photography style starts with faces and stories, when one stands out to him. He collects pictures all around that moment, which talk about it. Then shots are composed and merged, ‘shaped’ to tell that story, to suggest the feeling of that moment.

Hong Kong, New York, Tokyo, Lisbon: his works, shot in the great metropolises of the world, sublime street life, recreating sensations through the time and space overlapping. In his photographs a strong focus point grasp the look from getting lost, allowing us to dive between volumes, shapes and situations.

BKK, his last series, bring us through the streets of Bangkok, amongst the crowd, the smoke, the food, the marketplaces. “I made base camp in Talat Noi, one of the most popular and ancient part of Chinatown, full of mechanical workshop, food stalls and street rusty second-hand car engines stack, a neighborhood dense, noisy and smoky, alive. It was the perfect choice.”

Alleys, temples, trains, in his shots emerge the feelings of a story, of an encounter, of a trip. Merging moments and places, Riccardo allows us to make our own vision, a very personal point of view. Details and nuances come to the surface joining the plot, enriching it, generating unexpected connections. Is the life that comes forward through the flow of lines, colors and forms within the image boundaries.

His BKK Series, following similar ones in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Florence and New York, won honorable mentions at the PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris and at International Photography Awards this year.
