A page for some photos to keep, some notes to expand.

What about Photography and Writing?
«I believe that having a photographic sight helps to find accuracy and synthesis
also in writing. Writing for its part helps photography to go beyond appearance,
to ask questions and to pierce the surface.

I use to write and I like good literature, in general. Some books in some moments of life
are able to move the way we see and live objects and spaces».
