Paris- Moments of Truth

Paolo is a fine art photographer based in San Francisco, California and travels wherever he is assigned to do the photographic assignment to make it come true.

Truth in imaging is a passion to give the true message. any subject or conceptual project can provide an image to penetrate or pursuade, but to attach truth is transparency. Though compositing art is not reality, we must ask of the story, what is the truth? Truth is needed in creation. Fine art can be a Truthful story when the moment is captured.

Young & Old

Cooking food is the oldest of industries or maybe construction of shelters, but for now we'll say food, because we can't go without it. So, once the first community had an outdoor gathering with food, was it the first outdoor cafe?

Now, if we were to look at many cities today, say Paris. How would you see it's streets different and it's cafes?. Yes, there's a few new buildings here and there, but how much has a city changed if the cars and trucks didn't give it away to recognition of it's former self. Deep in the streets of a city away from the skylines and modern transport, is the truth revealed in the heart of thriving daily human activities that make it all so, familiar in yesterday and today.
