From 'La mia vita intera' (My whole life) by Mario Giacomelli.

'Mine is a poetic realism, meaning that it omits, it leaves out, a few things. I start from a certain reality, but at the same time I ensure that it is my own reality: I bend it, shape it to my advantage, for what I want to say'.
'What matters to me is to feel, to look inside myself. I want to understand who I am, what I want, in that moment, in front of that situation, why I am here and not there, why I want this and not that. In my photographs what is important are the ideas inside them, the thoughts, the emotions, the sensations. This is what it matters, even if I don't deny reality'.

It's a New Year, time for good resolutions and wishes. Do you have any street photography-related resolutions or wishes? I certainly do. I wish you all a New Year full of motivation, inspiration and vision, filled with new opportunities, experiences, satisfactions. I wish the Street Community a new Street CV too, because we surely need one. Desperately! But in the meantime, please show some love to the authors of these powerful and gorgeous images.

As for the good resolutions...Help me write the Yard's list up! Is there something interesting or useful we can do for you? Do you have critiques, suggestions, ideas? Please let me know. Do you have interesting readings or features to share? Link me them. And if you have news of your own, such as a publication, an exhibition, an award, a book, a project, a blog, a website, whatever! let me know, and I'll help spreading the news through the Yard's journal.
I'd like to make of this group a place where you can find resources, inspiration, connections and exposure. Help me with it.
If you're there, knock once!
