Black and White Photography – Rita Scarola

Rita Scarola was born in Grumo Appula in 1990, studied pedagogical subjects and graduated in Political Science at Bari in 2016. During self-taught university studies, she began to be interested in photography, definitively maturing that indissoluble bond with the camera that would accompany her during her many trips around the world. India, Kenya, Turkey, the Balkans, Belarus, are just some of the other worlds that she explored her soul in. Rita pursued the possible dialogue with distant cultures even if it would happen only through a gaze. Eyes, hands, faces, smiles, tears: the quest for detail, for a tale to be told of the real world and for a necessity to immortalize what a naked eye might lose after it moves on and how to see beyond what was visible: a particular moment whose essence the human soul has the duty to seize.

Black and White (B&W) Photography belongs to an altogether different era and the interesting part is that the art form has not only survived all this long, it is thriving with innovations taking place every next time. Seems as if man is finding it difficult to come out of its spell. B&W comes with a rich heritage in the form of works of Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Edward Weston etc, who created masterpieces out of the constraints of equipment, tools and above all – color. But absence of the latter evidently came to their advantage and helped them see what would not be visible in a colored world. Colors dominate frame, its aspects and elements; and so a B&W photographer will rather focus on the potentials of placement, shape, pattern, texture, tonal contrast and above all flow and quality of light.

Black and White Photography – Corrado Corradini

“My name is Corrado Corradini. I’m 63 and live in Lombardy. I had been a professional photographer for eight years at a well-established photo agency in Milan. During those years I was involved in sports coverage following the various events of numerous disciplines, performances, journals etc. Gradually I became so exhausted that the initial enthusiasm for work turned into a routine with very little creativity, and eventually I said goodbye to photography for about twenty years.

In the year 2009 during the recording of a sports event with a small digital camera, I got a few moments to myself to explore the camera and it was like finding your true love that could never be forgotten. Today I am free from any constraint or obligation and I do photography just for fun only to find those moments greatly memorable. Now we have the digital devices but for those who had experience with an analog camera, it was like being in a wonderland.

I consider myself a reportage photographer.
