Portfolio by Tommaso Sacconi



This series shows people in the instant of coming out of the dark or just about to vanish in it. This is the only moment that I fall in love with them.

Each of the pictures is the result of minutes, sometime hours, spent waiting. I usually  get attracted by location first. I walk there over and over in order to study the light, how and when it changes. Then I wait for the walkers, because people are many scale for architecture, which is crucial to me. In the end I take the photos, usually many of them, as a speed camera. The results are frames of lonely walkers, icons a urban modernity which I’m entirely part of.
