Rimini's annual Foto d'Autunno exhibition opened on the 10 of September and runs through the 25th of October. Over the past few years the event has established a name for itself, attracting both local and international talent.
Local photographer, Chico De Luigi, is exhibiting photos from his blog, which, for the past 5 years, he has updated daily. His à la sauvette approach to photography could be described as: inconsistent, cheeky, and unorthodox – for a photographer with a lifetime of experience. But that's exactly what makes his pictures unique and fascinating. He makes the camera work for him, concentrating on his subject, instead the technical aspects of the camera.
Also on display are photos from some of Chico's students who attended his summer 'No Panic' workshops.
The exhibition of Luciano Leonotti, dedicated to Giorgio Morandi, is another of my favourites.
Leonotti's images depict the rooms, simple and bright, where Morandi, the great Bolognese artist, lived and worked.
