E poi ti capita di sentire, mentre hai l’occhio nel mirino, due poco distanti che parlano.
“ma cosa fa quello?”
“e’ un fotografo di strada, scatta foto alle persone.”
“ma lo puo’ fare?”
“certo che puo’, l’ho fatto anch’io tante volte”.
cosi’ lascio l’occhio nel mirino e sorrido, tra me e me.
Shooting the street is beautiful, charming and makes your adrenaline rush up. As when that railway man came to tell me I needed a permission, to shoot pictures in the station. False. Now I have a document in my pocket to show that. Or when that albanian guy came enraged to me grabbing my shirt and asking to see the pictures I just shot. Yes, on film… Then he told me I was shooting “like a queenie” leaving me stunned. We nearly fought but he strangely didn’t want to follow me to the police to clear the question.
Then you happen to hear, while looking into the viewfinder, two nearby guys talkin’.
“what’s he doing?”
“he’s a street photographer, he shoots pictures at people.”
“and can he do that?”
“sure, I did it many times as well”.
so I leave my eye into the viewfinder and smile, confidently.
