Another fascinating encounter in Ukraine. Another of my Russian teachers, if only for 5 minutes.


The meeting with Alexey was already a special one, when it led to a true revelation. Along with his lovely wife, Alexey had yet another person for me to meet. Yuri, retired physicist, now in his 80s like his lifelong friend Alexey. Yuri has spent much of his life, and litterally each and every day of the last 20 years, drawing. Not amateurish sketches,…


Walking in the park outside the Ivan Franko University of Lviv, Ukraine. I see an interesting man coming towards me. Not only does he seems quite photogenic, but a gut feeling tells me it’s worth trying to chat a bit with him. I was right. Here is Alexey, 82-yr old matematician with a special interest for geological processes. Having being “thrown out” of his…

SUMMER – I. Allegro non molto

“Zeffiro dolce Spira, mà contesa Muove Borea improviso al Suo vicino; E piange il Pastorel, perche sospesa Teme fiera borasca, e ‘l suo destino” (Soft breezes stir the air, but threatening north wind sweeps them suddenly aside; The shepherd trembles, fearful of violent storm and what may lie ahead).

SPRING – II. Largo e pianissimo sempre

“E quindi sul fiorito ameno prato Al caro mormorio di fronde e piante…” (On the flower-strewn meadow, with leafy branches rustling overhead…)

SPRING – I. Allegro

“Giunt’ è la Primavera e festosetti La Salutan gl’ Augei con lieto canto, E i fonti allo Spirar de’ Zeffiretti Con dolce mormorio Scorrono intanto….” (Springtime is upon us. The birds celebrate her return with festive song, and murmuring streams are softly caressed by the breezes..)

“Omoide” is out

My Polaroid book “Omoide” is out. If you are fascinated by Japan, you will love it. If you love the look and feel of old peel-apart Polaroid photos, you will be enchanted. If you fancy both Japan and Polaroid photography, this book will immediately be among your favorite. Contrasty, gritty and moody. Don’t miss it. (click on the cover to see preview of the…

My new book is out: (my) Afghanistan

Some of you have reminded me a few times that it was about time to give out a new book. Well, now it’s out: (my) Afghanistan. It’s documentary work about the people of Badakshan, Afghanistan, and their daily struggle to survive not war or terror, but landslides, floods and erosion of vital agricultural soil. No grainy and gritty black & white this time (well,…

Sick & tired

That’s what I am. Sick & tired of all of this, that you may find so charming since you don’t have to live with it for 6 months a year.
