Once upon a time in Isfahan

These photos are from my trip to Isfahan back in 2008.  I was just starting to take intrest in photography. Isfahan is such a magical place. There’s a saying in Iran that goes like this : ” If you’ve seen Isfahan, you’ve already seen half of the world”. Now, that’s a bit of an exaggeration but it has some truth to it. Everything in Isfahan has been touched by the gentle hands of art. You can always find something facinating in each angle of the city.

A moment frozen in time.

A moment frozen in time, that’s what a statue is. Whether it’s the anxious look on David’s face after he has thrown the stone or the lifeless head of Medusa held by Perseus, it’s always about that moment, that instant in which everything just stopped and turned into stone.

Today I took my camera with me to take some photos of these beautiful statues in Piazza della Signoria in Florence. As always my 50 mm lens came in handy because I wanted to shoot these statues as if they were real people. The level of detail on these sculptures is just overwhelming. They work in perfect harmony with nature. The light made by the sun and the shadows made by these statues work together to create one of the most magistic things that a man can ever lay eyes on.

Recycled Fashion

Tags

, , , , , , ,

This is a photoshoot I did some months ago. The idea behind the whole thing was to recycle everyday objects that we all use, put them together and turn them into an elegant dress. The dress was made by Areta (the model) and my friend Sara (Visit her blog at www.7-sevendays.blogspot.it ). The skirt is made of plastic garbage bags while the upper part of the dress is made of  a copper plate that they shaped into a top. My friends at  http://www.bedarumica.org/ once again let us use their studio so a big thanks to them.

Please comment on the photos and let me know what you guys think. I can never get enough feedback. Bob.

The strange side of Florence

, , , , , ,

I made this post in order to show people that Florence isn’t only about renaissance art and architecture. Sometimes when walking through the streets of Florence, you come across some really strange, modern works of “art”. So I wanted to share with you lovely people some of the goofy things that can be found in this magnificent city.

The last picture wasn’t shot by me but by my good friend Sara.
