I started to talk with a client about photography, and came out that he has more than 700 old cameras collection. The story of photography. Leica, vario-elmarit, rolley and many many names, less famous but extremely great to the quality of the pics that they made. He also told me about cameras from KGB and the tecnology that they use to shot under extreme weather condition, or, if i was thinking that leica and vario elmarit made great things, some lens from Russia are sharper that them.
Tecnology tecnology...today we alwais talk about it and about the progress... I see that now is only a businnes, and what they built isn't what did you expect...
When i was watching the Italy football players, the italian best players all together, people that are so rich, i had some sensations... I was looking "normal" guys, with a talent. At the people, on tv, on magazines, they looks so "great", so "far"... That day, they where there, in front of me, simply, quiet, doing them work, doing what they enjoy. Into some, i found a little bit of shy beeing sourrounded from a lot of people so near and screaming... I think, at our eyes they looks so great because there is another huge world rounding around them: the world of Money. I was thinking: i'm sorry for the most famous of them, that are impossible to have a simple walk in the city centre without someone that stops them for a sign, without walking with a friend and found the day after that a magazine start a new love story... Ok, they have a lot of money...but money doesn't mean happiness.
I would wake up... wake up and wach the world from a plane, wake up and smell the chilli, wake up and breath the fresh alaska air, wake up and ear the waves on the sand of a tropiclal island, wake up during a deep red sunset, wake up and photograph the never-stop-New York, wake up listening buddist mantra in a Tibetan village, wake up near my far friends.
But i'll wake up having my everyday milk&biscuits.
