Inside Alessandro Cipriani’s Camera bag! (Bag No185)

“Hi, Folks! 

I’m Alessandro Cipriani, an amateur photographer. I love the road and all the possibilities that SHE  the street (yes, because it is a sentient and living entity, a concrete entity) give me. The TIME. Stop him and contemplate him, that face, the movement of the hands, death; the power to block death, almost a divine being. 
After discovering analogue photography in its practical side (development and printing) and spending a few years with the Leica M7, I understood that the perfect system with which I would have been comfortable was the Leica M system,  I decided to sell a large part of my digital equipment and buy a Leica M9, a slow camera with many weak points but which fully reflects my photographic philosophy.

Rules of participation

Each person that submits the contents of his bag will also be allowed 150 words to describe her / himself to the rest of the Readers via the website pages! We will even allow one link, back to your website! It will be loads of fun! Why? Well, because we will start to get to know each other through these small 150 word descriptions and of course through the contents of each one’s bags! Now, when we say Camera Bag, it doesn’t have to literally be a bag. It could be a pouch, a backpack, pockets of a jacket, whatever. All we need is the list of all the contents and a photo of those contents on a wooden or carpeted (preferably) floor from above. What must be included in the email you send us? Here is the list of things you need to provide us with in order to have a valid entry:

  • 150-word description of yourself and your Street Photography quirks, habits, tips, whatever. 150 words MAX.
  • Photo of the contents of your bag and your bag next to those contents on a floor-shot, taken from 90 degrees above. High quality, big size.
  • List of items included in your camera bag.
  • Link to your website OR blog OR Facebook page OR Instagram OR whatever.
  • A closing remark 20 words MAX. You can say for example something like Thank for letting me share the contents of my bag, now stop looking into my privates and go take some photos!

We thank you in advance for your participation and we are really looking forward to finding out what YOU are hiding in your camera bags! Send everything in at! Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!
