Street Photo of the week by Giorgia Ivone
I have known Giorgia Ivone for nearly over a year now. We met on line in the SHRC, the Street Hunters Readers Community on Google Plus. She is a very kind and enthusiastic person and clearly very passionate about Street Photography. She is Italian, currently living in Varese, Italy. She shoots in black and white most of the time and loves to capture the beauty of her country’s streets and share it on the web. During the time I have known Giorgia, her skills have only got better and her passion for the art has only got stronger. Her work has a quality that I admire and I always love to look at her photos in detail. She understands light and shadow and she always finds surprisingly creative ways to compose her photos. This quality is something that other people recognise too because I have noticed that her work gets rightfully shared and published online. I highly recommend you check out her work and connect with her on Social Media. You will not be disappointed.
Giorgia has managed to create a most remarkable composition in this photograph that has elements that captivate the viewer’s attention. After looking at this photo one understands that it is of a beautiful woman, sitting in the driver’s seat of her car. Her stunning Mediterranean features can be seen amongst unknown patterns that seem to be drawn on her face. But what are those patterns on her face and why is a half a star shining on the window of her car? What are the viewers looking at? Giorgia Ivone has managed to capture the woman’s gaze while in the window of her car the bottom parts of balconies are reflected, giving viewers the impression that she has patterns on her face. Her eyes are so strong they feel as if they are burning through the patterns, as if they want to be seen. On her right, our left, the bright light of the sky shines in contrast to the surrounding buildings that due to the curve of the car window appear distorted and look like half a side of a star. There’s brightness on the left side of the photo, darkness on the right side of the photo, but a darkness that hides a beauty all want to look at. The lady.
A wonderful photograph!
Thank you Giorgia Ivone!
