Street photography images are taken by me, mostly using smartphone. Text is from American Beauty movie, winner of five Oscar awards, including best picture. Concept behind the film and these photos is simple and essential. Beauty is everywere, in every corner of this world. The simplest thing like a normal bag dancing in the air may be wonderful to see.

We are often blind. Lost in traffic or at work thinking the way to make career and how beautiful is the new iphone; we don’t look at the beauty around us. We can find it in an hug on the street, in the contrast between light and shadow, in a child with his father.

Thanks to street photography I can see now, I can hear the music in the air, I can feel the magic around me. A simple light in the morning can be wonderful to watch. Street photography is not a simple hobby, it’s a way of life, a way to watch reality around us with different eyes. Try to appreciate more your life photographing the worldy beauty.

I’ve linked here the wonderful video taken from American Beauty. This is the most significative scene of the movie in my opinion. It express perfectly the concept that i have about life and street photography.




Stay well, have always light in your life

Best, F.S
