Landscapes One may be curious why a 100 people sitting at the edge with cameras in their hands would love clicking the same sunset that occurs almost every next day. Will not all these images look the same when processed. Well, one possible reason could be that nature is as dynamic as it is static. Also there is abundant beauty in nature and you will always feel like belonging no matter how long you continue looking at it. But the foremost reason that comes to my mind is that it brings about a strong emotion that you can pick a piece of the spectacle, create it your way and you become the owner of your own universe. You could do the same with painting with even more freedom and control but here you are appreciating the real world that you live in. The pleasure of actually having been there to witness it is as real as the scene before you. The air, the fragrance, the color and the touch is more than the worth of effort that goes into reaching there and taking your own photo. Money can buy you acres of land but here the whole planet is yours. You add or avoid elements, shift angles and choose your points of view to make your compositions unique, something more than a record shot, something no words can describe.

Such is the collection we present before you that will make you feel as if you actually were there and you will love watching it as much as we did making it. Pankaj Anand October 2016

MAURIZIO MARTINI Staggia Senese , Italy

Mi considero un appassionato della fotografia, passione sbocciata oltre 25 anni addietro e mai sopita. La fotografia mi permette di guardare il mondo con occhi diversi. Ho smesso di guardare le cose, e ho cominciato a guardare come la luce le disegna e come ne accende i colori a seconda dell’ora, della posizione etc, progressivamente cambia il modo di percepire la realtà e permette di cominciare a pensare a come rappresentarla e a costruire una immagine a proprio piacimento giocando con la luce e i colori. Perdono di rilevanza i contorni netti e le forme ed entrano in gioco le sfumature, i passaggi cromatici e di luce. In questo modo si introduce il movimento nelle immagini giocando sulla tridimensionalità che luci ed ombre donano.


I consider myself an indomitable fan of photography -a passion blossomed 25 years ago that ever since has never gone dormant. Photography allows me to see the world with different eyes. I started to look how the light draws the world, how it lights up colors in different things, moments, places etc. Changing the perception of reality would become possible while I played with light and colors . The contours and shapes would lose their relevance in spite of colored shades and chromatic passages of light. This is how I try to introduce movement in my images thereby creating a 3D effect that light and shadows give to the images. 10

ISABELLA TABACCHI Carpi, Italy

Sono nata a Carpi, in provincia di Modena, il 23 Marzo del 1992. Fin da piccola ho sempre avuto un lato creativo ma non ho mai capito come indirizzarlo nella maniera giusta. Avevo una piccola compatta con la quale scattavo foto a tramonti e a paesaggi, ma a scopo ricreativo. Dopo essermi diplomata al Liceo Scientifico, mi sono iscritta alla facoltà di Farmacia dell’Università di Bologna e avendo più tempo da gestirmi come volevo, ho deciso di comprare la mia prima reflex e imparare tempi, ISO e diaframmi. Con il tempo ho capito che volevo focalizzare le mie fotografie sul paesaggio naturale; mi sono innamorata in particolare della montagna e degli scenari sconfinati delle Alpi. Utilizzo una post produzione di tipo creativo nei miei scatti, ma sempre in modo che essi siano realistici e mi ispiro ai pittori paesaggisti del XIX secolo.


I was born in Carpi, near Modena, the 23rd of March 1992. Since childhood I’ve always had a creative side but I never understood how to direct it in the right way. I had a small digital camera with which I used to take shots of sunsets and landscapes, but only for recreational purposes. After graduating at the high school in science, I enrolled at the Faculty of Pharmacy of the Bologna University and started having more time to spend the way I wanted. I decided to buy my first reflex camera and learn about shutter speeds, ISO and diaphragms. I’ve realized, over the time, that I wanted to focus my shots on the natural landscapes. I especially fell in love with mountains and the boundless sceneries in the Alps. I edit my pics with a creative post processing but always so that they are realistic and I take inspiration from the landscape painters of the XIX century. 22

PAOLO LAZZAROTTI Apuano, Italy

500px.com/paolo73 www.facebook.com/paololazzarottiphoto/ info@paololazzarotti.photo

Apuano classe 1973, la mia passione per la Fotografia ha preso forma alla fine degli anni 90 quando ero ancora minorenne e ho iniziato a muovere i miei primi incerti passi con una compattina Olympus ovviamente a pellicola. Attraverso gli anni ho imparato tutto rigorosamente da solo, cercando di capire i miei sbagli e soprattutto come fare ad evitarli. Mai letto libri nĂ‹ tantomento frequentato corsi o workshop in vita mia. Adoro immortalare il mare per la sua incredibile mutevolezza e forza, talvolta osando espormi per coglierne l'anima irrequieta durante le burrasche pi˘ intense. La mia pi˘ grande fonte d'ispirazione sono i pittori del Romanticismo con particolare riferimento a Turner e Friedrich le cui atmosfere cupe e luci forti mi hanno sempre colpito.


My passion with Photography had started in late 90s when I was 16 and took my very first steps with a compact Olympus analog camera. Throughout the years I learned everything by myself without reading any book or attending at courses - just understanding what was wrong with my own shots. I mostly love fine art applied to seascapes and waterscapes, nature and portraits. I always look for a new perspective and composition to find out beauty in any thing or person I meet and make my style as much as original and different as I can. I hope you will appreciate my photos and have a nice and pleasant visit. Feel free to contact me for having a portrait or buy my landscape printings. 34

ANDREA BERTINI Bocca di Magra, Italy

“Il mio amore per la fotografia è nata dall'ambiente in cui vivo. Ho la fortuna di vivere in Liguria, a Bocca di Magra, nella valle del Magra, cara terra di Dante e molti poeti. L'amore per la mia terra mi ha spinto a catturare questi momenti così come rimangono impressi nella mia memoria. Sono felicemente sposato con due bambini di età compresa tra 5 e 10 anni. Il mio lavoro ha avuto il merito di portarmi alla fotografia. Da lì il passaggio alla fotografia per divertimento è stato breve. Mi considero un artista di paesaggio con una spiccata predilezione per paesaggio marino.”


My love for photography was born from the environment in which I live. I'm lucky to live in Liguria, in Bocca di Magra, in the Magra valley, endeared land of Dante and many poets. The love for my land has prompted me to capture these moments as they remain etched in my memory. I am happily married with two children aged 5 and 10 years. My work had the merit to bring me to loving art. From there the transition to photography for fun was not too long. I consider myself a landscape artist with a marked predilection for seascape. 46

Salve, mi chiamo Davide Calasanzio, sono nato il 29 aprile del 1970, vivo e lavoro a Catania. Scopro il meraviglioso mondo della fotografia nel 2006, quando ho comprato la prima reflex (Nikon D80) insieme al primo libro fotografico. Per lungo tempo ho fotografato tutto quello che i miei occhi vedevano, senza però capire quale fosse la mia vera attitudine. Nel maggio 2009 scatto una foto di paesaggio dal titolo "Quiete Assoluta" (che potete vedere nel mio portfolio), in quel momento ho capito che questa era la mia attitudine la mia vera passione: la fotografia di paesaggio. Con le mie immagini voglio descrivere la bellezza della mia terra. Quando qualcuno mi chiede che cosa è per me la fotografia, dico loro che oltre ad avere la possibilità di scattare delle belle foto ho la fortuna di vivere quei luoghi e quei momenti in incredibili.


Hi, my name is Davide Calasanzio, I was born on April 29 1970, I live and work in Catania, Sicily, I t a l y .
 I discovered the wonderful world of photography in 2006 when I bought a camera (Nikon D80) along with my first photography book. For along time I photographed whatever my eyes saw, without understanding what was my objective. In May 2009 I took a landscape picture entitled “Absolute Quite” (that you can see in my portfolio). That was the moment when I realized where lied my inclination; my real passion lied in Lands c a p e p h o t o g r a p h y .
 With my pictures I want to describe the beauty of my land. When someone asks me what photography is to me, I normally tell them that while I take a picture of my landscape I live as the first person who had the privilege of enjoying those incredible moments. 58

GIANNI RUSSO Villaricca, Italy

My name is Gianni Russo and I was born in Napoli 48 years ago where I still live. I always loved photography but for the previous five years, after the birth of my son, I have started doing photography every single day. Taking picture is just a way to stop the time and never let it be forgotten. In the beginning I just used to shoot portraits and reportage, but soon later I started shooting landscapes and cityscapes. To me photography is just a way to translate my point of view on life into images. Photographing is something that makes me feel good, it makes me happy. The contemplation of the landscape relaxes me and helps me think about the basic things of life. Often I am asked why I like to photograph and my answer always is: because it makes me feel good. 70

ELENA SALVAI Carrara, Italy

500px.com/elenasalvai www.instagram.com/elena_salvai_photography/ www.viewbug.com/member/elenasalvai www.facebook.com/elena.salvai.96

Sono nata a Carrara, un lembo di terra in riva al mare e sotto le montagne , e sono sempre stata una grande amante della natura e degli spazi aperti, elementi in perfetta sintonia con la mia libertà di spirito . Dopo gli studi all'università inizio a fare trekking sulle Alpi Apuane. Gli scenari mozzafiato di queste montagne che si ergono a picco vicino al mare mi conducono alla passione per la fotografia, nella quale trovo un mezzo perfetto per immergermi profondamente nella natura e fermare per sempre la forza e l’emozione di istanti irripetibili.


I was born in Carrara, a strip of land by the sea and in the mountains, and have always been a great lover of nature and open spaces, the elements that go in perfect harmony with my freedom of spirit. After completing my studies I started going on trekking in the Apuan Alps. The breathtaking scenery of these mountains that rise overlooking the sea led me to the passion for photography. I find photography as a perfect way to immerse myself deeply in to nature and freeze forever the strength and emotion of those unique moments. 82
