The ” Chicago Street Photography ” project was born from the idea to share our Italian way of doing “street ” with Americans like and love the Italian Style : a real Italian learning experience outside the classroom in direct contact with people and urban elements of the American City . Street photography is more than a photographic genre ; Street photography is a way of being , of living and perceiving of the day-life. Our Plus is our Italianism. Be “ Italian street photographer ” means get excited for the simple things , to grasp the “candid” side of life, smiling of the grotesque but also convey , with a sweet brutality , those visions that generate emotion. CSP is a way to “speak” Italian Street Photography in the homeland of Street Photography. Andrea Sciré and Giuseppe Pons are member of the Italian Street Photography ISP, the only collective full dedicated to the street photography only shoot in Italy.
The Patronage of the ICC Italian Culture Center of Chicago is the symbol of the will for a real culture exchange between people loving the Italian doing way and Italian Professional Photographers loving the American “dream”.
