41. Elegance and Peace... in one simple shot

Updated: Mar 20, 2020

By - Giulio D'Ercole

What is beauty? What is the essence of elegance? What does it mean feeling and longing for peace? How can we share with the world what we care about?

Sometimes, most of the times, the answer to this questions is.... simplicity.

The simplicity of a beautiful orchid behind a window. The simplicity of the window reflecting on its glass the window on the opposite wall, almost inviting her to open up. The simplicity of the right balance, a proper composition, the orderly arranged geometry that creates a dialogue amongst all elements.

With this simplicity, in one shot, "the eye, the heart and the mind" (Henri Cartier-Bresson) finally find a deep alignment. The photo taken becomes serenity in quietness.

Sebastiao Salgado said “…my way of photographing is my way of life. I photograph from my experience, my way of seeing things…” .

During our Rome Photo Fun Tours these are some of the themes we will talk about together, and, as we will be walking through the Eternal City, we will focus on capturing their immaterial essence on our digital sensor.
