NINO ROMEO’S “DROIT AU BUT”

Nino_01

There have been so many ways to narrate migrations. In the last century photography has recorded the stories of those people forced to abandon their lands of origin – because of war, globalization, famine etc. etc. The project of friend photographer Nino Romeo does not focus on people’s faces – the chosen solution by the press and the media – but he prefers to “interrogate” objects that were washed up or abandoned on the beaches. In 2016 Romeo turns up with his camera, a Nikon Coolpix P7800, on the iconic beaches and bays of Capo Teulada, South-west Sardinia, in the places where a landing occurred. Shoes, t-shirts, plastic bottles now faded by the Mediterranean sun seem to have become part of the local wilderness: there is a delicate sense of continuity between the human need/urgency to migrate and Mother Nature’s unchanging and apolitical welcome. Nino Romeo does not judge what he sees; but his twenty color frames launch a cry of alarm to civil society.

HYST’S “KOREA DEL NORD” VIDEOCLIP

In early April my friend actor/rapper/director Taiyo Yamanouchi a.k.a. HYST called me to participate in his new videoclip, Korea del Nord. Taiyo chose me to play the role of a villain (I’m a super bad guy!). I’ve played the part of the North Korean dictator’s bodyguard but I could not help also recording the backstage with my FujiFilm X30…
