This is a “young website” so it is a “work in progress” (perhaps it will be for all my future life). I realize many years ago the relevance to publish my phographs inside magazines. This actually spread your work not only among photographers but among common people. So in next days you’ll find in this page a lot of latest magazines to find my article and photographs. But I realize also that if you want to be well recognized as a real first class photographer you need a legitimate and well made book (and more than one if you can) with your photographs. So I’m working a lot to realize every year a new book. It’s an hard work, expensive and it’s worth only if you have something to say with your experience, your words and your photographs. Otherwise don’t waste your time and join competition: it’s easy, cheap and you can get a lot of personal satisfaction. One of this time I’m going to write an article in this website on my way to intend a good photographic book and how to make it (perhaps it’s all wrong but there are no rules).
After one pair of books I realized the relevance of make a themed one. It happened after the first Kamchatka Expedition and after a few years experienced in brown bear’s life sometimes living and sleeping with them. Perhaps my photographic work on bears’ life and behaviour will last for all my life. I love all of them and I have never had any problem also with the biggest but I know that someone has: so please don’t disturb bears and observe them only through field glasses, if you want to move close to them … change your idea !!!Bear approaching is a magic moment of life but it needs a long experience and observation skills (or a good leader !!!). “Arctos.01” was the first and main result of my work with brown bears and I seriously think it could be not the last. It’s a solid high quality print square book. What’s inside ??? … photographs and a few words. What’s the meaning ??? … Buy it or join one of my conference (price € 35,00 ISBN 978-88-908289-0-4).
Soon after I published “Arctic Lights” the first work on polar bear. I cannot explain how much polar bear changed my life. When I saw the first one my eyes was full of tears. I saw polar bears swimming, jumping, playing, hunting and, above all, I saw cubs and I saw polar bears in such a poor condition that I clearly feel we are so much stupid, cruel and ignorant. I became vegetarian and I made photographs of polar bears every year and during all arctic seasons and I’ll continue till I can: but every time there is something worse in polar bear’s life. This is a big heavy high quality square book (like Arctos.01) and someone says that’s an artwork. I don’t know if it is but I know that in every photographs there is a little piece of my soul and my life (price € 40,00 ISBN 978-88-908289-1-1).
I began to write also some novels but “Bjorn’s History” (it. Storia di Bjorn) is a whole other story because I wrote about one polar bear’s life … thinking like a polar bear. I don’t know if I was able to do what I want … but it’s very cheap.
Men do not undestand books until they have a certain amount of life, or at any rate, no man understands a deep book, until he has seen and lived at least parts of its contents. Ezra Pound.
