PHOTOGRAPHIC CHRONICLES MARCO MAROTTO

THE TRAINER Sacrifice and renunciation, victories and defeats, satisfactions and disappointments. The sport. The fight. You don’t it for fame, you don’t it for money, you don’t it for passion, you do it for vocation, you do it because you love it. Time passes, he become mature, along with trophies he gain experience, he become trainer, the national team, the Olympics, the dream.

PHOTOGRAPHIC CHRONICLES LARRY WOODMANN

BIOGRAPHY Larry Woodmann, “stage name” of an Italian photographer, born in Florence in 1964 and moved to Milan in 1997 where he still lives and works as a top manager for a telecommunication company. He cultivates photography as a hobby during his many travels and by a lucky chance encounter with a famous model, from which comes the first “set”, he decides to dedicate to this art expression with a more depth and focused approach. His photography is born from instinct and an innate aesthetic sense, not according to any technique nor any preconceived feeling, but only to that a model inspires him and then click to his set. “My ideal model is that one who, when I’m finally just in front of the pc screen working the shot, makes me fall in love with that woman forgetting her true identity.” Beauty, Glamour, Street Fashion, Erotic, Reportage are for his photography classifications with little importance, every shot communicates feelings that may fall under each of these categories. We could then define him as a “aesthetic” photographer, which seeks in every shot balance, beauty, harmony of the composition. Emotions are left to the personal sphere of the beholder his pictures, who is asked by the author in one word: “Beautiful!”

PHOTOGRAPHIC CHRONICLES LARRY WOODMANN

MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA A trip to South East Asia. As one of many young Western dreamed all their life. An unexpected money over. Crazy idea to glean something and complete the holiday. After all, what could it be? Just once, close your eyes and do it quickly. Aromas of incense and cigarettes, low light, who is he? I have my own room, clean, comfortable, silk sheets. That girl met at the bar advised me well and the owner has guided me well. The geisha studies involving the whole being: the modulation of the breath, the silhouette, the hairstyles, the gait. His physique must be slim

and slender, sharp face, her cheeks, pale color as the “cherry blossom” or “ice” so to remember the fall. The item must be able to vary the tone collecting a range that goes from melancholy to panache. The facial makeup is particular: the mouth should be redesigned so as to show to the rhythm of the lips, tension and relaxation together. The eyes should assume an expression that evokes the sweetness leaving a glimpse of flirtatious toes properly. The normally smooth and hair color glossy black and deep can be styled an appropriate aesthetic canon. I’m a westerner, I live in my own way, but I became the most popular in Saigon. I never would have imagined, but after 5 years I’m here, my world now has other borders.

AUTHOR OF THE MONTH ANDRÉ GIGANTE

BIOGRAPHY I was born in Porto, Portugal, in 1980, and I work as an architect since my graduation in 2006. Since the age of 9, however, when I received an old Olympus camera that belonged to my grandfather, photography has always been a huge part of my life. Even though I never stopped working in architecture, I began exploring different areas and co-founded bonjourmolotov in 2011, an atelier of visual arts and multimedia, where I develop projects within the fields of photography, illustration, animation and motion graphics. Photography for me is wanting to be in the heat of the moment, diving deep within the context, trying to be a part of the story, and I think that’s why I usually do series instead of single images. From street photography to stage photography, documental or more conceptual, indoors and outdoors, I’ve explored different approaches and I don’t know if I can pick a favourite. Nevertheless, my biggest passion is photographing people, from afar or as a portrait, and I also consider it to be the biggest challenge. They are moving targets, full of emotion and expressiveness that exist for mere fractions of a second.
