Who is Enrico?
My name is Enrico, I’m 52 and I live in Bologna, Italy. I took my first reflex shot in 2010 during a trip to Africa – and haven’t stopped since. I’ve always been a curious traveller, feeling the need to see and explore different ways of life. I think this approach is reflected in my photography, where I like to capture people’s stories with images.
I like to view the same people through multiple lenses so I can see how they, and the places they represent, look in different contexts, angles and light. This fascinates me, as I can explore different shades of the world.
The stories behind the best photos
The light of night made a wonderful bokeh for me.
In southern India, women are always the protagonists of family life; workers and mothers but always beautiful in their colorful clothes. India is a complex country that can not be explained and has to be seen and photographed.
The eyes of those who look at you with spontaneity always give me an emotion.
This picture was taken in Chiang Mai Thailand. The young Bonzo was busy preparing for the celebrations of Loi KrathongThe point of view and the strong color contrast makes this shot one of my favourites.
I took this photo in Laos, on the border with Cambodia. These children played in the Mekong River. Often, an emotion is the result of an intuition and develops in a second, so you only have seconds to catch it.
Enthusiasm and joy, children are really the future of the world.
Your eyes look fixed. They scrutinize and are curious, they draw you in like a magnet – you cannot resist. It is an interaction between the photographer and the subject that he lets himself discover. This man in Sulawesi is wrapped in the typical sarong toraja to shelter himself from the cold while waiting for a bus.
7. A young baby
A young baby H’mong Flower that it is one of the many ethnicities of northern Vietnam. The sweetness of the look and the typical dress gave me a window into these people’s world. All children always wear a headset to protect their head from the cold – and this makes it clear how important and protected the children of this ethnic group are.
Enrico about diversity
Diversity is normal.
Man fits in the environments in which he lives, and in those environments he develops his culture and language – his way of being and living. I like to get in touch with people or people who keep their differences and peculiarities more intact and true, even though it’s sometimes hard to understand them all. But this difficulty to understand is perhaps what makes them so special in my eyes.
