Riccardo Magherini_Dodho-03

Can you tell a little about yourself?

I’m a pragmatic guy, a little bit overthinking, with an unclear vision of the world and an itchy curiosity.

How did you get interested in photography?

I stumbled on it. It has been unplanned and unexpected. Now photography is my primary interest, it’s part of my life.

What inspired you to take your BKK Series?

BKK is part of a wider project that mainly involves wandering the big Asian city’s alleys with no other occupation that look, smell, taste, wonder and take pictures of things that catch me. I like to be inside the environment to shoot and, at the same time, I love having the feeling to be isolated, a foreign without any possibility to communicate but eye contact and gestures. A sort of flâneur, in a way. Bangkok with its smells, chaos and noise, has a crazy human life that permeates all. Things and people merge into each other in an amazing huge clanging living organism. I wanted to portray this.

Three words that describe your works?

Dense – Vibrating – Nuanced

How would you define your general style of photography?

Evolving.

At the beginning, when I started to take pictures meant to be merged, my works were different. My way to see things has changed during time, discovering new interactions between myself and the street, changing the way I look at my work.

In your opinion, what makes a good street photograph?

I’m not a street photographer, so I’m not an insider, so to speak. As a street photography spectator I like to be surprised by the unknown and by the delicacy of the nuances, tonal and ahestethic.

What do you think makes a memorable project or photograph?

Concept, timing, composition, personality. Photography projects have to be personal.

How do you know you got the shot you wanted?

I know if I stumble into something that I want to collect. My works are made of fragments, like memories. Almost all the pictures that I take from a place or a ‘street story’ are shots that I wanted.

Your idea of the perfect composition?

The non perfect one, a bit unbalanced. With an itch that make me feel uncomfortable and an anchor that keep me there.

What would I find in your camera bag?

Very few things. A mirrorless, a couple of vintage lenses, a notebook and tangle of cables.

What future plans do you have?

Keep strolling alleys. Keep changing point of view.

Finally, one last question. What opinion do you have of our print edition?

Dodho on paper, like the online version, has a strong graphic appeal, a neat and impactful layout and a great selection of contents.
