Nord of France. October 2020. During a firemens' strike, a group of people tryed to join the city hall but the road was blocked by cops. I was shooting the burning wheels when a old man, looking surprised, cross the road. A peacefully day breaked by an act of social violence. A quiet man, stranger in the events of this day but becoming part of them because the surgical mask. It give at the picture an extra details fixing the moment in this pandemic crisis period.
Giuseppe Volpe ITALY
Born in the south of Italy, I studied cinema and journalism and then I moved to France where I began to work in video editing. I fell in love with photography the last 5 years realizing thousands of pictures of Paris, Rome and other city where I lived and visited for travel. I have changed my life to work full-time as a sport photographer. For my personal work I choose to shoot in black and white, digital or film, for the different meaning that lights and shadows give to the subjects. I work to mix my passion for cinema (specially Italian Neorealismo and French Realism) with my journalistic studies in order to create a personal street photgraphy style. My aim is to frame the world around me without any kind of judgment but full empathy with peolple's lives.
