Mini photo-project: Napoli 09.13

Mini photo-project: Napoli 09.13

Being creative during these times it’s hard for me, too often I go out only to take some pictures with no ideas in my mind. That’s why I’ve started to do some mini-assignment to myself (mini photo projects). The idea is really simple: hanging around just catching things that I like or that attract my attention. Two weeks ago I’ve been around in Naples, close to the sea, with two friends of mine (Dario and Vincenzo) from 9 am to 1 pm.

We have been in “Mappatella Beach”, “Spiaggetta Colonna Spezzata” and down to the “Castel dell’Ovo”.

I have a controversial story with my city, in some way I love it, in some others I hate it. That’s why is so hard for me to photograph it. It’s a city full of stories and characters, so it’s really hard to come back home from a photo-walk in Naples with no pictures.

Here are some of the photos that I’ve taken that day.

The cover image have been featured and published by Leica Camera as Leica Master Shot and Picture of the week on LFI Magazine.

About the photographers

Mary and Maurizio are wedding photographers in Italy. They love capturing moments of genuine happiness and fun, feelings and emotions.
They shoot weddings in Tuscany, Como Lake, Apulia, Amalfi Coast of course, and abroad. They’ve worked together in adv agencies for several years, dealing with fashion and lifestyle, and this still has a strong influence on their style. Travels and cinema are also some of their greatest sources of inspiration.
Their photos are always devised with a look that comes directly from advertising, fashion and movies. They translate true moments of life through a kind of glam eye, they “aim to document reality in a glamorous way, always without taking away spontaneity from our shoots”.
They love to make their couples feel at ease in order to let them look spontaneous and gorgeous in their photos. Their main goal is catching authentic moments of joy and raw emotions
