We’re writing from Italy, and It’s about a month that Mary and I are at home and maybe we will stay here for at least one more.
We’re all having hard times all over the world and we are forced to stay stuck at home for our safety. Anyway, we’re very lucky to have the ability to video chat with our friends without leaving our home or to enjoy services that provide us unlimited music and movies.
Moreover, we’d like to share with you a “small” selection of videos that we have found on YouTube. You’ll find more than 10hrs of documentaries and interviews from some of the most iconic photographers ever.
We really hope that this list can help you to enjoy your time at home waiting for better and brighter times that will come soon.

Joel Meyerowitz – Les Rencontres d’Arles 2017
“Photographers are athletes of the decisive moment. Among the human assets a photographer needs to cultivate are boldness and innocence, quick reflexes, as well as trust, precision, grace, and the willingness to fail again and again. However, the spicy taste of the occasional success is so satisfying that it erases any memory of the moments that got away. Enough so that one is ready to go out again in the knowledge that the world will repeat itself forever, in renewed variations.”
