Street photography June 2020: part 1

October 28, 2021

A quick review of my street photography taken in June 2020 in Rome. That was hard times for street photographer. In fact the first lockdown due to Covid-19 ends in May 2020 but streets were almost empty, people were afraid to get out from home. There were no tourists, Rome the eternal city seemed a desert place, as the rest pf the world. So it was very difficult for a street photographer like me to go out for to take some good shots. Few people on the streets was a problem also for my shyness.

But in this month I’ve taken some of the best pictures of the year. I don’t know how it is possible. So I was lucky enough to photograph really interesting scenes despite of empty streets in Rome. This is the first part, of course, because I’ve taken many good shots that months, so I have to divide the June 2020 review into two parts. Here we come with the first series of street photography taken in June 2o20 with my Ricoh GRIII. Hope u’ll enjoy that.

Let’s start with a surreal and funny shot at the same time. I was inspired by De Chirico’s atmospheres.

I’ll do an article to describe in particular the sequence from I’ve extracted the following two shots. It was a sunny days, I was with my Ricoh and flash in front of Trevi Fountain when a I looked at this particular street prayer. He was very kind with me so I started to take some pictures of him.

The following picture is inspired by Daido Moriyama’s photography for the BW strong contrast, the dutch angle and also for the subject.

For this surreal shot I was inspired by Mark Coen’s photography. I like the picture the man seems a sort of zombie.
