This week, Corrado D'Angelo shares his work and his own words.
" Two images from a larger portfolio (8 images) dedicated to a particular shop in my town, Turin, north of Italy. Its name was "Inferno" (Hell) and they sold strange garments for "strange" people (punk, dark, and so on). Really far from my gendre, but one rainy day I was strolling under the arcades of the town center with my camera and saw the girl arranging the shop's window with the heart.
I lifted my camera and shot: a short smile between us and I left. Few days ago I returned with the print of the photo and gave it to her. Well, so I started to work on the shop, on the girl and their clients, so different from me. I came back 5 or 6 times and found that "different" does not necessarily means even "dangerous".
My aim in photography is to tell stories and emotions, through images that are both pleasant for the eyes and moving for the hearth.
All images are hand printed by me, with a light final selenium tone: shot by Nikon F70, TMax 400 roll. "
