I spy

From the church atop of the cliff, I spy rusty promises of eternal love and  infinite horizons

The calm after the storm

The winter sea, a bowl of contrasts. Neither light breeze, nor moderated gale: storm and hurricane I call you, winter sea. And calm.

Colors fall from the sky

Some news channel recently included Cinque Terre, Liguria, Italy among the places to avoid because of mass tourism. They are probably right: I never managed booking an accommodation in Cinque Terre during spring, summer or autumn. What about winter, then? Enjoy the colors of Cinque Terre, painted out of the sky on each of the five villages.

Pictures shot in Vernazza and Porto Venere (the sixth “Cinque Terre”). Click each picture to enlarge

Au-revoir China

Downtown shopping

Chairman Mao

Chairman Mao

I have been on my own 4 day long in Harbin, without understanding a word and without being understood. Shops signs, bus stops and restaurant menus lost their meaning. The connection to the outer world turned flimsy. Still, several times I have been asked to pose for a souvenir picture with strangers. I had my fun playing the exotic creature with locals. And whenever I gestured for shooting a picture to someone else either in downtown, slums or rural areas, I always received a smile back. How warm was my human experience in Harbin, despite the constant -20 °C. Au-revoir, China!

Here below the full list of the reportage “Detour to China“. Pictures shot by Lorenzo Borghi, reportage edit by Maria Francesca.

  1. China Red
  2. Smoky days
  3. Sometimes … sticky sticks
  4. Life in plastic
  5. United workers of the PRC
  6. Antithesis
  7. Take a walk on the white side
  8. Organized Chaos
  9. Lights on ice
  10. Blocked
  11. You must leave your hat on
  12. Layers
