WePhoto - 2016 - Minimal - Vol 1


WePhoto “The Series” Minimal Vol 1 Dear all, I am very proud to introduce the new collection “The Series”. It was not so long ago since we have launched the first eBook, including the photographic work of the 15 administrators, who at that time were cooperating in the “WePhoto” group. Since then, we have published 21 eBooks and the Special edition “Calendar 2015” and now two Calendars 2016. This new collection – The Series - is made of different eBooks, each one (or more than one if required) related to a specific photographic theme, including the artworks of several authors from Italy and abroad. This is the first eBook of the seventh line of this new collection and has been dedicated to Minimal Photography.


We are all so excited and happy to be able to collect such beautiful images and, most of all to be able to share them with a wide audience. Spread, share, recommend everyone to download eBooks from our webpages and links below. Also make sure to leave your feedback on the eStores – 5 stars comments would be great. RATE IT! You can really help us growing and sharing our beloved passion for photography! In this eBook you can also find the links to our Facebook Group.

Minimal Una parola così “piccola” che nasconde un Mondo non visto. Infinite sfumature dei bellezza, di colori e forme. Il Mondo di MINIMAL è vasto, ricco di particolari e anche non ben definibile. Minimal può essere un paesaggio che guida lo sguardo in un unico punto, può essere una foto di Architettura, una “Street”, oppure qualcosa di così vicino a noi, un particolare che concentra l’attenzione, che “CREA” un immafìgine “MINIMAL”. Spero che questo mondo affascini voi, come affascina me, ed I bravissimi Autori.

Minimal A word so "small" that hides a WORLD UNSEEN. Infinite shades of beauty, colors and shapes. World of MINIMAL is vast, rich in details and also not well defined. Minimal can be a landscape that directs the gaze in one place, t can be a photo of Architecture, a photo of "Street" or something so close to us, a detail that focuses attention, that "CREATE" a picture "MINIMAL". I hope that this world fascinates you as fascinated me, and our talented authors.

I was born in Cagliari 26 years ago; from just 1 year I've enhanced the study of photography in all its fields. Fascinated by the possibility to share with other people the way I see the reality around me, i start to immortalize what i see in my mind with my trusty Pentax. I love the minimalism because it allows me to direct the attention of the viewer to few elements in the picture, trying to transmit a message or an emotion through irony. Thanks to Fabrizio, my mentor , Silvia , my source of inspiration and my Pentaxians friends, that give me joy and happiness. 9

ANGELO CIRILLI Cuneo, Italy a.cirilli@tin.it www.facebook.com/cuneo/ www.facebook.com/groups/139193476097533


Mi chiamo Angelo Cirilli, classe 1957 vivo a Cuneo, dopo aver girato gran parte dell'Italia per lavoro, da una decina di anni posso dedicarmi alla mia passione fotografica a tempo pieno. Quando posso pratico la caccia fotografica in montagna, amo fare ritratti in studio, ma la mia vera passione Ë lo still-life minimal. Fin da quando mio padre mi regalo una Comet Bencini nel 1970 fotografare gli oggetti mi ha attirato in modo particolare, ma la vera svolta c’è stata alcuni anni fa, quando mi sono allestito un piccolo studio fotografico casalingo ed ho perfezionato e personalizzato in modo particolare la tecnica della retroilluminazione. “Una fotografia, è l’arresto del cuore per una frazione di secondo” - Pierre Movila 21

CHRIS FRAIKIN Leerdam, The Netherlands chris@chrisfraikin.com www.chrisfraikin.com


Educated at the Royal Academy of Art, where he studied graphic design, Chris Fraikin built a professional career for forty years in succession in the graphic, the IT and the music industry.
 In 2014 he decided to focus more on photography and in search for a direction in photography that would attract him most he attended lots of workshops and made several photo tours as well in The Netherlands as abroad. Besides projects of all kinds, he currently found his main field of interest in what he calls 'archtracts': minimalistic extracts of in particular architectural and urban objects. Mainly he roams at industrial sites to discover the objects which are photographed in a contemplative way. In his work you will recognize his graphic background. 33

GIOVANNI PAOLINI Milano, Italy www.facebook.com/giovanni.paolini.14 www.gpaolini.it

Mi chiamo Giovanni Paolini, sono nato a Monte Porzio (PU) il 22/09/50. Vivo a Milano. La fotografia è sempre stata il mio hobby e la mia passione. Giacomelli è il mio fotografo preferito, ma penso abbiano influenzato il mio modo di fotografare anche Franco Fontana, HCB Henri Cartier–Bresson,Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe e molti altri. Ho fatto nel 1984 una bella Mostra personale dal titolo "Pretesti" al Circolo Filologico Milanese e molte altre collettive e concorsi fotografici . Attualmente uso una Lumix DMC–FZ28, una Lumix DMC–FZ 150 e un paio di compatte, ma non ho una reflex ad obiettivi intercambiabili.


Non saprei dire esattamente cosa sia per me la fotografia,è solo il riuscire a cogliere il momento di uno stato d'animo quello che cerco di trasmettere. Non so' mai cosa fotograferò. Una luce, un volto, un muro. Certamente non riconosco alcun intento al momento dello scatto. E' la totale libertà dell'emozione a coinvolgermi. Quando fotografo il mondo scompare e ci sono solo io, la luce e le mie emozioni!! Se poi questi miei momenti coinvolgono anche gli altri, e non importa come, ne sono contento su istagram come @giovannipaolini surrealtà minimalista !! queste mie foto vogliono cercare una dimensione estetica , al limite della poesia e della surrealtà in un mondo di grafismi che arriva all'essenza del minimalismo 57

DAVIDE COLAGIACOMO Genova, Italy www.davidecolagiacomo.com www.eyeem.com/u/davidecolagiacomo

In questo mondo dal 1973, ho iniziato a maneggiare macchine fotografiche a 8 anni, per poi continuare fino a oggi, imparando un linguaggio che ormai uso quasi più della parola (per grande gioia di chi spesso subisce i miei sermoni). Sono un ingegnere mancato, ma dell'ingegneria conservo un'impostazione razionale e analitica. Amo l'architettura razionalista, così come l'Impressionismo. E attraverso la fotografia cerco di trovare prospettive di visioni diverse da condividere con tutti.  Fotograficamente mi piace ritrarre le persone nella loro quotidianità, così come adoro le geometrie architettoniche e l'esplorazione di luoghi abbandonati. In tutte queste dimensioni fotografiche, sento sempre forte il richiamo per il particolare, il dettaglio che magari sfugge ma che nel suo piccolo rappresenta un’armonia minimal che appaga la vista. Ho fondato da pochi mesi un’associazione culturale il cui scopo è quello di far convivere e dialogare la fotografia con altre forme d’arte, nella quale convoglio tutte le energie che il lavoro e un figlio meraviglioso ancora mi lasciano.


www.facebook.com/Davide-Colagiacomo-Io-fotograf o-249499675200848/

In this world since 1973, I started to handle cameras at eight years, and then continued up to today, learning a language that I often use more than words (with pleasure of those who often suffer my sermons). I'm a non-engineer, but I keep engineering approach, rational and analytical. I love rationalist architecture, as well as Impressionism. And through photography I try to find different perspectives of visions to share with everyone. Photographically I like to portray people in their daily lives, as well as adore the architectural geometries and exploration of abandoned places. In all these phographic occasions, I always feel strongly called by the particolar, the detail that we don’t note in ordinary life, but feels good to be seen. Few months ago I found a cultural association whose purpose is to bring and talk together photography with other forms of art, in which I put all the energies that work and a wonderful son still leave in me. 69

PINO DI GIACOMO Chieti, Italy digiacomogi@tiscali.it


Pino Di Giacomo, works as a general practitioner and he is a photographer by passion for 35 years. He is currently using a Nikon D5100 with Nikon 18-55 mm and 55-200 mm lenses. He has interest in the photographic analysis of the territory through architecture and landscape, but for some years has been especially dedicated to minimalist photography, in its various aspects, which is the type of photos based on the concept that "less is more" , which allows to observe reality in its most essential and schematic aspects remaining faithful to the idea that "the hardest thing in photography is to stay simple (Anne Geddes)" 81
