Pictures around my world

My Scholarship entry - Streets of Cuba ... Hasta siempre

Cuba | Thursday, November 13, 2014 | 5 photos

My name is Giovanni Vichi. I was born in Florence, Italy. I'm an engineer.
In the beginning, my approach with photography was a matter of curiosity but very soon I realized that seeing the world through the lens of my camera was becoming a real passion. I work hard to refine my technique and train my eye. My camera has become my inseparable companion during my tours in Florence and it is still with me during my travels around the world.
Travel and photography, two passions of mine so deeply connected one to the other. I’ve always desired to learn about different and distant cultures and photography helps me to get close to them and to discover the world, sometimes in an unexpected way. I don't know what I will shot next but I know photography will bring me somewhere I haven't been to yet.
What is the photography for me? R. Barthes has got the right answer: “What the photograph reproduces to infinity has occurred only once: it mechanically repeats what could never be repeated existentially”, and I would add: a beautiful photo is able to do it delivering emotions.
I heard about the National Geographic scholarship with Jason Edwards and I've immediately thought ... I must try!

The only people on the Komodo Island are the rangers that look after the dragons. The few tourists rise the curiosity of their families, as they represent that western world they can only imagine.
