– Hi, Attilio. How would you describe this set of images?
– This selection of photos belongs to the project Hidden poetry. The urban environment is dissected by highlighting its poetical character, according to a compositional rigor of correspondences of lines and colors.


– As a photographer, what do you find interesting about urban environments and architecture? What usually attracts your visual attention?
– I like to find the detail that suggest the total. The human landscape tells about the people more than the people themselves.


– Which other photographic styles do you like besides architectural and urban photography?
– I am fascinated by the anthropological photography, because it can tell about people and places without the mannerism of journalism.


– What motivates you to be busy with photography, what is your goal as a photographer?
– Photography has always been my medium of expression, through it I tell myself who I am. Fortunately someone appreciates my work and buy my pictures.


– Do you have a ‘dream location’ where you would like to take photos? which city would you like to visit for a photo session? Which city would you like to visit for a photo session?
– I am attracted to all “non places”, I love the anonymous spaces, the suburb of the world.


– What is your favorite camera?
– The Leica M9, its compact size allows me to carry it always with me without sacrificing quality.


– Did you publish any photo books and where do you expose your works on internet?
– I’ve recently published the photo book Hidden poetry with Blurb. My works were published on several blogs and photographic sites (click here to view the list), my website is acph.viewbook.com and some of my projects are shown on Behance network.


– Thanks a lot, Attilio. All the best with your photography.

    The poetry is hidden, but the talent is obvious!

    In Attilio’s own words, this is ‘hidden poetry’: uncovered, revealed. “Poetry in an Urban context.”

    While photojournalism is in the midst of a remarkable, and singularly unexpected renaissance, some photographers like Attilio have challenged the hegemonic figure of the photojournalist at its core — and given birth to the most interesting ideas.

    In urban photography, separation of the landscape – an intrinsic part of human predetermined use, unfolding photographically is quite a challenge. By revealing steps that would typically be concealed, we are forced to think about the relationship between images.

    Here we have a remarkable unravelling of personal stories and anecdotes of everyday landscapes and exterior places, enticing what is essentially our sensory experience and the adaptation of aspects from the vernacular.

    Urban landscapes indeed have their own poetry from its contact and contrast with the real physical city.

    “Poetry fishes us to find a world
    part by part, as the photograph interrupts the flux
    to give us time to see each thing separate and enough ” – Jack Glibert.

    Once again, an excellent choice and an insight into visual poetry ‘concealed and revealed’ – enveloped by the projection of unification, and still managing to maintain and retain its own character, shape and specificity – in short a language of its own in the metropolis (es) we now form an integral part of. I am so inspired by this visual experience. “
