my classmates – Manuela Brunner & Priscilla Pedone

This is the last post about my classmates.

I’d like to end with two girls: Manuela and Priscilla.

I loved the picture story shot by Priscilla: above all, the “dancing shadow” and the weird gestures of the actors (?).

I loved Manuela’s mildness and her will to stop working in a office and to make a twist in her life: become a photographer…

I need the same twist (and strength)!!!

Here some pictures…


Manuela and Priscilla outside a bar in Pienza.


Night of the final show: what a smile!

my classmates – I due “de Roma” (Two guys from Roma)

Now I want to talk about two guys from Italy, Fabrizio and Kim.

They’re from Rome: this is enough to describe them!

They’re often late for the afternoon critique but they’re so nice guys (also some pictures they shot) that nobody wanted to rebuke them, even Bob.

They’re talking about girls all the time: every girl in TPW seemed to be fine and worthy of interest!

I envy Kim for his age: he’s only 20 and he’s a lot of time to experiment and find his own way as photographer!

Here some pictures


Night of the final show (part 1): “De che ahò…”


Night of the final show (part 2): Kim has been surrounded by fine girls!


Fabrizio talking to the “model” of his picture story in a bar in Pienza.

my classmates – Wolfgang Fueter

After a break with reflections, another fine guy from TPW: Wolfgang.

It’s a swiss guy, who took some fine pictures of a piano player, and created a warm and intimate story.

I stress his swiss birth because I was rude with him at a dinner in TPW monastery (another consequence of drinking too wine?): he was a gentleman, only a smile.

So, I became his personal waiter in order to make him forgive my behaviour (with insufficent result, I think :-)).

Here some photos…


At work, before the afternoon critique.


Final show night: the same problem for all of us, wine!

only pictures – Reflections

Just one little break.

In the workshop on TPW the goal was: ” learn how to take pictures of people”.

Landscapes, architectural photos, and whatever picture not related to people has been FORBIDDEN.

But I like taking pictures of things reflected by windows and mirrors: so a picture of a landscape reflected by a window is not a landscape picture!

Here some examples:


One view of Val D’Orcia I took from a small window nearby our classroom.


This one (too dark…) is a sunset from the window of my bathroom.


A reflection of a fresco through a small window of a tiny chapel close to the church of the monastery we lived in for a week.
