With only my camera (Canon 1100 D) and a press badge – in fact a free ticket – I attended the 2012 Soundgarden reunion concert in Milan. Thousands of young people – who were not even born when the grunge revolution began to shake Seattle and the whole world – were all around me. Kids full of energy and eager to listen for the first time in their lives to Chris Cornell, Kim Thayil, Ben Shepherd and Matt Cameron live and in action. When the show started I began to take pictures and had to fight not to be submerged by the crazed crowd. That Soundgarden concert, in the audience, ended up being a very physical & almost confrontational experience, but that did not stop me from putting together a very good series of shots.

The TIE fighter was the unforgettable symbol of the Imperial fleet. Probably TIE is the most iconic Star Wars product: a sphere between two shields, the perfect design solution for boosting our imagination. In The Force Awakens, the new episode, the shadow of the Empire looms again over the Star Wars saga fans and stretches out on Time magazine’s special double cover and inside pages and the walls of our homes. We’re back in the battle! [Shots taken by FujiFilm X30]
