Street Painters in Florence

May 06, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Back in 2014, I wandered the streets of Florence fascinated by the “street artist” namely the painters that abound in the historic center of the cultural city of Florence.

These people have become a tourist attraction. I dedicated hours to meeting them and interviewing them from a documentarist perspective, aiming to create a collective portrait of the group character. I got to interview and photograph 26 of them.

My project was shot and documented but shortly after that, life and my own story took the front stage of my interest. The project got stuck in a box for years.

In 2021, now, I am peeking with wonder in the corners of my photographic archive and I am still fascinated by the “street artist”. Now,  the photographs have become living memories and flashback opportunities. I haven't been traveling in a while and rediscovering my pictures brings back to life those magical moments I lived in Florence.

In the next few days, I want to edit and put together the photographic project I intended 7 years ago.

Here is a little sample.
