Where to start my first post if not from the definition of “beauty hunter” with whom I present myself in the home page and in which I identify completely?
Seeker I’ve been since I’ve been aware of it. The research is deeply linked to my being, perhaps engraved in my DNA and in any case cultivated since my childhood by my parents. An instinctive character trait, a primary need, a response to the need generated by introversion and shyness.
A research mostly practiced in nature, addressed to the infinite wonders that the universe in which we live continuously offers us. In every place and in every situation, I believe that we can always look for and find beauty. In a remote forest like inside the dish where I am eating, in a secret corner of the lagoon or in the middle of city traffic, and sometimes even in difficult situations. Surprise for what you see is exciting!
The beauty hunter is instead a status of which only progressively, in parallel with the growth of the passion for photography, I became aware. Gradually, but with one exception, the one for mushrooms, I began to replace the physical collection of what I was looking for and found, limiting it to the collection of “sun” images.
It was fundamental to understand that the fulfillment for the discovery was fully completed only by reviewing the images captured and fixed in a photographic medium. Therefore photography is an instrument of knowledge and deepening, and an emotional and aesthetic end.
“CercaLaBellezza” calls me Allison, a friend of the journalist known a couple of years ago in the Venice Lagoon, with whom I shared a cruise on the bragozzo Eolo and the vision of the reportage I had produced. I hope to deserve this name and to continue, as long as possible, to thrill and excite me as a child for every little or big discovery along a path as fascinating as it is unpredictable.
