HUMANIST PHOTOGRAPHY

I didn’t invent the thing, the humanist photography, I just find it is the closest mindset to my way of photographing. I’m not a pro.
This is what humanism in photography is all about. It is about showing images of people and telling stories about them. It is about being a “genuine” human – showing love and affection to others. Humanism in photography is all about images that show empathy and the ability of human beings to empower each other.

ABOUT ME

My name is Daniele and I'm based now in Italy. My activity as a photographer is independent and non-profit. I don't want any affiliation or forms of hiring in order to preserve my creative freedom.

Besides the main website, there are a Facebook and an Instagram for Le vecchie foto delle stelle. I create free online exhibits and sometimes I publish fanzines or books. 

ABOUT THE PROJECT'S NAME
The website’s name came from a page of Watchmen graphic novel by Alan Moore e Dave Gibson which I read when I was young, in my mother language which is Italian. On that page, an inhuman guy with the greatest powers in the universe, Dr. Manhattan, tries to reconnect with his human side by remembering the time he was a real man and by watching an old photograph of a happy day in the past.
He fails. He throws away the photograph –  on the martian soil! – and he thinks: “All we ever see of stars are their old photographs”.
That is, in italian, Le vecchie foto delle stelle.
