The covid lockdown, my book and my zine

Il mio libro e la mia zine dal covid lockdown

Sono giorni di tensione, il cecchino vigliacco è ancora là fuori. Ma noi siamo combattenti, ci adattiamo alle regole dettate dalla legge e dalla prudenza e andiamo avanti!

These are days of tension, the cowardly sniper is still out there. But we are fighters, we adapt to the rules dictated by law and prudence and move forward!

E allora ho deciso di rendere pubblico il lavoro fatto durante il primo lockdown. Sono fotografie e qualche pensiero da quel difficile momento disponibili sotto forma di libro oppure di zine.

And so I decided to make public the work done during the first lockdown. It’s about photographs and thoughts from that difficult moment available as book or zine.

Chi segue questo blog da tempo dovrebbe già sapere che amo in modo particolare la fotografia stampata, concreta, da poter tenere in mano. Per questo motivo ho scelto di pubblicare il lavoro come libro, stampato su carta di qualità in piccolo formato per mantenere l’aspetto intimo.

Those who have been following this blog for a long time should already know that I particularly love photography when it is printed, when it is concrete, something something that can be held in your hand. For this reason I chose to publish the work as a book printed on high quality paper and in a small format to keep it as an intimate project.

Esiste anche una versione zine, più economica ma con le foto di dimensione maggiore!

There is also a zine version, less expensive but with larger photos!

Il libro lo trovate al link seguente, dove potete visiualizzarne una parte e se vi piace acquistarlo!

  1. i should start making books for myself… i miss making photo albums from my old film days
    i didn’t like this year, lately i’m so alone, so lonely that i feel i may go insane

    • Making books is a good exercise, you select, you sequence, you study the layout of the pages and you combine text and images. This is all good and interesting.
      I do not mke books to make a profit, I do tohave my photography out in the world, possibly in a physical form, printes.
      Something people can have in the hands…yes, you should try it !
      ps. we are all feeling alone in thiose days…we do not go insane: it is the world around which has gone insane!

      • yeah, i would just like somewhere i can make and order ONE book for myself and hubby… you know of a place? perhaps one day having a wordpress blog will have an option to order a book made out of one’s pictures lol that would be cool…

  2. Bravo. My hunch is that the book will sell better when this illness is truly behind us. Like the Trump presidency, it will seem like a bad dream.
