B&WCityEuropeMattia Zaldini ; Street Photography

He developed his passion since he was ten years old. He started in the easier way… He though it was a game. Go out and shoot. Easy, Simple. Fast. For some reasons, He shortly becomes the official “fotoreporter” in his family.

He developed his passion since he was ten years old. He started in the easier way… He though it was a game. Go out and shoot. Easy, Simple. Fast. For some reasons, He shortly becomes the official “fotoreporter” in his family. During the summer holidays or during the Christmas time, He had the camera in his hand.

He understood he had a new passion: photography. Since that time, he always had the camera with himself. It didn’t matter what he was doing… the camera becomes his best friend. Several years after he still follows his passion. The camera has changed. The goals have changed. The approach to photography has changed, but his passion still remained the same. She still produces, in him, emotions, and this is the key.

He always says: “If I think about the meaning of photography, the first thing that comes to my mind is the word EMOTIONS.” There is no question, in fact, that a beautiful image of a sunset by the sea can set off in us a myriad of emotions, a myriad of feelings. Feelings of passion, joy, love or sadness, melancholy and why not, loneliness. How can a romantic image as a beautiful sunset inspire in us discordant feelings such as joy and sadness? Emotions like the love for a person and the sense of loneliness? Or … how can an image captured at dawn with the cold shades create a perception of heat? The answer may seem rather obvious but it is not obvious. We are daily bombarded by images and each of them generates in us certain sensations. Understanding and governing these feelings are the keys to being able to provide them through our own images. The author must be able to feel something. The difficulty is to externalise these feelings into images. The scent of freshly cut grass, breathe deeply during a morning of summer, or feel the fog and winter moisture penetrate to the bones. All of them are feelings that must be considered if you want to try to create an image that is not a simple snapshot but a story full of charm and poetry. For this reason, Mattia needs to be involved by the surrounding area. The goal is getting in connection with the world around you. During his travels to discover new wonderful destinations, He has always tried to merge with the surrounding territory. Land in the broad sense, of course. A territory is, in fact, interpreted in its broadest meaning: Territory means places, people, climate, customs and costumes. From the chaotic New York to the Scottish Highlands to the piers of Maine, through the romantic Paris and the fascinating Venice. Every place has something special, something to be discovered, analysed and used to convey your emotions.

Mattia Zaldini | Street Photography | New York

Every time He works on a project, his first step is to stay among the people trying to feel the life of that place. He spends some days without using the camera. He try to take essence of every situation in front of him.
From the incredible New York city, where he tries to reproduce the essence of that magic place, to the narrow street in Venice, involved by the tourist wave during the carnival days. He loves shoot ordinary life scenes. He loves to be involved by the people, without call or interact with them. This to avoid the lack of naturalness. Every place should be the right place. Often he remains sit down on a chair in a cafe, waiting, observing and trying to see what can happens. Sometimes it means a waste time, sometimes He gets the shot. No rules here. Just patience and experience. [Official Website]
