What do you want me to say?!
People keep holding on to their souls like they couldn’t preach another word tomorrow. We feel fear. It’s on the back of our heads. We cry because the pain is mutual. Grief paints itself with different faces. And in the middle of this there’s always a vague question: how the hell did we get here?
How did we allow weapons to have more power than words. How did we decide not to trust someone who’s different than us. How did we discriminate others from the outside.
People are sad. Tired. Fed up. Crossing their fingers that nothing bad happens. Generations before us gave their lives to fight for our freedom. But nowadays we live a new type of war. A war that has no boundaries, teams or sides. It’s a complex mix between misunderstandings, violence and discrimination.
Luck. That small factor that plays a big important part in our daily lives. That thing that keeps your heart overwhelmed by admitting “I was lucky not to be there at the wrong time.” Chaos. A complex situation that we, the people, want to get out of it as soon as possible.
We may have no idea how to solve all these major problems that are conflicting us. But at least we know, for sure, that compassion, love and happiness will prevail.
In terms of exploration and self-taught, sometimes I refuse to know information. On my own cost and responsibility, I take the blame for not having the knowledge I should have. Truth being told, according to your tasks and activities there are some things that are better to stay unknown. This can help you with your creative process in the beginning and after many brainstorms, you can share your new ideas with people you want to collaborate with. It’s all about a point of view, an opinion, a question, a constant exercise of puzzling your creation. Learn new information according to your own logic. And believe it, just like in life, the stitching never ends. Keep up with the good work.
If I have the opportunity to photograph something that I’m passionate about, I absolutely take that chance without looking back. Coro Teatro Verdi di Padova is a chorus that has existed for almost fifty years. Their repertoire not only includes opera, but also classical and other lyrical pieces. I got to know them through one of my best friends who’s in the chorus for some time now. Their concerts are very good (if you like to be transported to another place through music). To know more about their tour dates and other info, click here. More photos and videos available on their website and social media.
The world is always a possibility.
With that in mind, it is indeed the place where you can free yourself and experiment new situations.
I always recommend to travel alone a couple of times a year.
The destination is up to you.
I promise you will discover your inner dialogue.
