You are creating some really excellent photographs! I think you see your world in a beautiful way and thank you for sharing your vision.

Alberto Mascali , December 07, 2007; 09:11 A.M.

stile

Molto bella questa tua attitudine a creare situazioni ad alto contrasto con la creazione di cornici (vissute o meno)che circondano i soggetti principali. Sia in campo architettonico (l'ultima di C.S.A.), sia nella street (mannequin, exit San Pietro) il risultato e' di grande eleganza.

Very good your personal attitude to make situations with high contrast using frames ( with or without man's sign) that surround the main subjects. Both in architecture and in street photos there is strong elegance.

Alex Koutsalexis , December 10, 2007; 07:24 P.M.

I thank you for all your kind comments and rates in 2007 and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year plenty of good photos. Ciao, Alx

SINCERELY

Guiseppe, I do not want you to think I was in any way mocking your image, HAMS, quite the opposite, I thought it was EXCELLENT.

Giuseppe Pasquali , December 13, 2007; 08:50 A.M.

No, no dear Hansjurgen ...

I never thought you were "mocking"!!! I was simply very pleased to receive such a synthetic, beautiful comment on my shot. So it's all right and thank you again for your time(I hope you will give a look at and let me know what you think about my portfolio ). Ciao. G.

Bello

Ciao Giuseppe, complimenti belle foto, abbiamo un modo simile di vivere la fotografia, 蠩mpressionante vedere in quanti modi si possono inquadrare i particolari. Le tue foto di Roma (San Pietro, Pantheon, Colosseo) fanno sembrare questi siti una cosa diversa. Complimenti e buone foto. Paolo

offerta collaborazione per una mostra di architettura a roma

salve! innanzituto...complimenti vivissimi per il suo lavoro. La fotografia 蠬'inesauribile tentativo di percepire l'anima delle cose, isolandola da tutto il resto studiandone le forme attraverso gli occhi...assorbendone il senso arrivando all'essenza e...resituendo un'emozione a chi guarda. Questa 蠵na magia, un'alchimia che non sempre riesce, non a tutti! e le assicuro che..la sensazione che lei restituisce attraverso le sue immagini...vibra all'unisono con l'emozione di chi sa guardare con occhi del cuore. Sono un'architetto e le scrivo perch謠colpita dalle sue immagini, ho avuto l'idea di contattarla per collaborare insieme per una mostra di architettura a roma. Dunque spero di essere al pi� presto contattata via mail ( ilariamontella@hotmail.com ) e di poterne quindi parlare. grazie. a presto. ilaria

Giuseppe Pasquali , January 16, 2008; 09:06 A.M.

Grazie Ilaria,

ho inviato un messaggio di posta elettronica all'indirizzo che mi hai segnalato. Aspetto una tua risposta. Grazie mille per le belle parole. A presto. Giuseppe

Nikolay Nenov , January 19, 2008; 03:03 P.M.

congratulations

Hello Giuseppe,

I enjoyed looking at your portfolio very much.

It shows to me a very personal feeling for light and a profound understanding of the language of photography.

It is my understanding that it is not before you start telling stories with your pictures that you have begun mastering this fine art we call photography.

Although some of your images are not so glamorous or "stylish" as some we came to admire lately, you are obviously a natural story teller and to me this is what counts.

My admirations.

Nikolay.

Hossein Mosaferi , February 02, 2008; 08:20 P.M.

dear Giuseppe, you have a unique portfolio. I found many great photos here. and something interesting: just take a look at this link: http://www.hmosaferi.com/snow.htm here are some of my photos. you'll find some common photos between yours and mine. it is really wonderful

Eliete dos Santos Teixeira , February 03, 2008; 03:00 P.M.

Bravo

Awesome portfolio. Congratulazioni.

Giuseppe Pasquali , February 03, 2008; 07:09 P.M.

Thank to all who have left a note on my portfolio.

Hossein: I gave a look at the link, and this is quite stunning: it's true : the world and "We are such stuff / As dreams are made on". We share the world, we share dreams. Thank you again. Giuseppe

Ciao Giuseppe,

Ho guardato alle tue photo che mi piace molto. Tutti hanno molto bene. Complimenti. Pardoname per il mio Italiano :).

Opinion

Dear Friend, i always follow your work, a great work, so i decided to ask you an opinion: you consider a shot as beautiful independently by photoshop?s operations? There is a limit to define a shot as a photograph? Many of us look for the best moment, the best light, the best composition to take a real photo; we are wasting our time? Please let me know. I added an example of retouching operated by an expert, Pam.R, in a perfect Rarindra Prakarsa style. The magic light of Rarindra (Rarindra is only an example of photoshophotographers; one of many..)! Thank you.

On photoshopping

Dear Alberto,
first of all I want to thank you for your appreciation of my work and for having asked me an opinion on such a difficult subject.

When photoshopping prevails on the original aesthetics of a photography, I know that the work I am examining is a work of art like a painting, no more a photography in the strict sense of the word. So, if someone wants to comment on it, he should put apart some "categories" and apply others (it's the same strategy used when you want to comment/analyze poetry or narrative).
Sometimes the photoshopping isn't prevailing on the original aesthetics of the photo, for example when contrast, tones, colors are adjusted like they could be in a traditional dark room, and in this case I know I can apply the photographic "categories".
Other times we are in front of an edge post-treatment, for example when the author dramatically enhances the sky and colors, like we see in many many landscape shots. When judging such works I always try to "extract" the original photo and think about it and what has been done with it: if the job has been an elegant one I try to analyze the photo behind the treatment. But I don't like the many fake, industrial, standardized postcards I see around, because I think that this works have been retouched only to impress the eye and not the mind.

In my humble opinion (and when I say "humble" I mean it) usually nobody wastes his time, nor the "purist", nor the photoshopper. These are simply two different ways - starting from an image taken with a camera - of producing a "work of art". But - as we are speaking about communication - the essential thing behind the use of pure photographic means or post-production ones - is the presence of a message. If the message is absent, a technically perfect photo is a waste of time, and the same could be said of a gorgeous photoshopping.

Excuse me Alberto if I have been tedious or unclear on this interesting subject. I'd like to leave you with one final, personal thought: when I shoot a photo I want to convey a message. Sometimes the message is more important than my humble photographic knowledge, and I don't care if the photo is un-focused, or not traditionally framed, provided that it brings my message in the shortest, clearest way.

Thank you again, ciao, Giuseppe

Italian translation

Caro Alberto,

Prima di tutto desidero ringraziarti per l'apprezzamento del mio lavoro e per avermi chiesto un parere su un tale, difficile argomento.
Quando il ritocco prevale sull'estetica originale di una fotografia, io so che sto giudicando un lavoro artistico simile ad un dipinto, non pi� una fotografia nel vero senso della parola. Cos젳e qualcuno vuole fare un commento su di esso dovrebbe mettere da parte alcune "categorie" ed applicarne altre (la medesima strategia utilizzata quando si vuole commentare/analizzare una opera narrativa).
Qualche volta il ritocco non prevale sull'estetica originale della foto, per esempio quando il contrasto, i toni, i colori sono ritoccati cos젣ome potrebbero esserlo in una camera oscura tradizionale, ed in questo caso so che posso applicare "categorie [di giudizio] fotografiche.
Altre volte siamo di fronte a trattamenti limite, per esempio quando l'autore ritocca (migliora, diciamo cos쩠il cielo ed i colori, cosi' come vediamo in moltissimi scatti panoramici. Quando si giudicano tali lavori io cerco sempre di estrarre la foto originale per pensarci su e vedere che cosa gli e' stato fatto: se il lavoro e' stato elegante provo ad analizzare la foto al di la' di esso. Ma non mi piacciono le molte cartoline fasulle, industriali e standardizzate che vedo a giro, perche' penso che questi lavori siano stati ritoccati soltanto per impressionare l'occhio e non la mente.

A mio modesto parere (e quando dico modesto, lo dico davvero) di solito nessuno perde il suo tempo, ne' il "purista", ne' il "ritoccatore". Questi sono due modi differenti - a partire da un'immagine presa con una macchina fotografica - di produrre un "opera d'arte". Ma - visto che stiamo parlando di "comunicazione" - la cosa essenziale dietro l'uso di mezzi fotografici puri o di ritocco in post-produzione - 蠬a presenza di un messaggio. Se il messaggio 蠡ssente, una foto tecnicamente perfetta e' una perdita di tempo, e lo stesso lo potremmo dire di un favoloso ritocco.

Scusa Alberto se sono stato noioso o poco chiaro su questa difficile materia. Mi piacerebbe lasciarti con un ultimo pensiero personale: quando scatto una foto voglio dare un messaggio. Talvolta il messaggio 蠰iu' importante della mia umile conoscenza fotografica, e non mi importa se la foto sar࠳focata o ritagliata (composta) in modo non canonico, purche' porti il mio messaggio nel modo piu' breve e chiaro possibile.

Grazie di nuovo, ciao, Giuseppe.

Guiseppe

Guiseppe, I'd already visited your portfolio but wanted to be sure to take the time to leave a few comments on your beautiful images. I like your vision very much and there are a lot among your many creative and elegant photographs that strike home with me. A tres bientot, Laurent.

Ton Mestrom , March 04, 2008; 03:25 A.M.

Hi Giuseppe,

without you knowing it the comment you left on my photo is actually quite funny. I was just browsing again through your portfolio (which is always a pleasure) and honestly I was thinking that you're one of those few people who perectly uses empty space in a photo as part of their composition. Put simply Giuseppe, you are a very good photographer.

Jose Angel Navarro Cortes , March 13, 2008; 05:05 P.M.

Hi Giuseppe!

Very nice portfolio. You have a great eye with a vivid style.

I will return to enjoy and comment some more of your shots.

Best regards.

Strong portfolio, showing a lot of beautifull work. Your works shows a personal, creative appraoch. My preference goes to your landscape work (e.g. Sienese landscapes)

Paolo Fefe' , April 13, 2008; 01:45 P.M.

Giuseppe

Mi ha fatto molto piacere conoscerti. Ho passato una bella mattinata con persone competenti dalle quali spero di essere in grado di apprendere il pi? possibile. Sono rientrato a casa da poco e la prima cosa che ho fatto e' venire a visitare il tuo portfolio. Gran bel lavoro ottimi e ben selezionati scatti. Mi piace molto il set in B/N e sorridendo ho provato quello di cui parlavo oggi. Al di la' della tecnica i toi scatti solleticano i sensi e chi li osserva (me) rimane a guardali per diversi minuti, a studiarli e ad esprimere inevitabilmente il proprio gradimento. Dovro' venirti a studiare spesso. Un caro saluto. Paolo

Marco Ruggiero , June 11, 2008; 12:21 A.M.

Stupendo!

Veramente una meraviglia di immagini. Un portfolio che ci invita a ritornare frequentemente.

Bellissimo. Congratulazioni. Marco.

Randall Ellis , June 11, 2008; 09:11 A.M.

(on other people's coal) [in response to your bio]

I am drawn to your use of repetitive geometric forms in your images - you seem to have a firm grasp of how to use these with great effect. I also think that you have a strong eye for the control of tonal values and for combining multiple complimentary elements to create an effect that is greater than it's constituent parts. These abilities lend real impact to your images, resulting in some real gems in your current collection here (I've added one to my favorites list by the way).

I'm curious, if you don't mind my asking, what is your artistic background? Your eye is more refined than many I have seen recently, as is your craftsmanship, and I was wondering what, if any, artistic training you have had, again, if it's not too forward a question.

Please keep sharing your impressive images with us, they are a joy to view. I just wish I could see them in person rather than on a computer screen...

- Randy

Giuseppe Pasquali , June 11, 2008; 01:52 P.M.

Thank you for your comments and visits: I am pleased by your appreciation.

One of these days - I always fear my "verbosity" - if you like, I will post some notes on my "cultural" background (from Old Indo-European languages to Structuralism in visual and written narrative). I'd like to thank you one by one, and be sure I appreciate the time you spend looking at and commenting my works. Thank you, Giuseppe

Magdalena Campomenosi , June 11, 2008; 02:34 P.M.

Giuseppe, sei un maestro. Hai un portfolio stupendo! Adoro in particolare i tuoi bianchi e neri, ma sono tutte belle le tue foto!

Mario Saliba , June 17, 2008; 05:08 P.M.

Great Portfolio

Very good work. You are lucky you live in Rome. There is so much to shoot there. I have been there twice and I miss it a lot!

Cheers and keep posting new work

Mario

Meir Samel , June 19, 2008; 01:21 P.M.

black and white

Your black and white work is marvelous. There is a tonality (if that is a work) that makes them beautiful. Reminds me of Selinium toned prints. You have a style that I enjoy but am relectant to try and go there myself. Maybe I will give it a try. Thanks.

Giuseppe Pasquali , June 20, 2008; 05:29 A.M.

Thank you very much for your support.

Magdalena, thank you for your "maestro": I simply try to depict reality as I see it, sometimes my vision is shared and this makes me happy and motivates me;

Banafsheh (Violet, is a nice name), yes it's true: I am lucky to live in a nice country and to have been given the possibility to know so many good photographers here on PN;

Mario, Rome is a great place to take photos, but it's very difficult - if not impossible - to avoid photographic commonplaces;

Meir, I am really happy you like my b/w's Selenium tone. I think your b/ws are among the emotionally strongest I have seen in a while.

Roberto Barbieri , June 22, 2008; 12:17 P.M.

I really enjoy your portfolio. It's very real. I can step into your photos and feel what you felt at that time. Well done.

Caro Giuseppe ... I would like to write you in Italian, but I only can say a few words in my grandparent's language. You are a "Maestro", my friend ... I have been contemplating your work for more than an hour and I assure you, ... I'm shocked. Your shots are incredible ... Thanks for share !!. Be sure I'll be here from time to time just to learn a bit about photography.

My best regards from Argentina.

Giuseppe Pasquali , July 18, 2008; 03:07 P.M.

Grazie per il commento sul mio Portfolio.

Laura Delegal , July 25, 2008; 07:04 P.M.

Thanks You

Thank you for your encouraging words, Giuseppe. Your portfolio is so very beautiful. Your pictures tell a beautiful story. I hope I can take that to heart, learn from it, and do the same in the future. I lived in Brindisi for 3 years and many of your beach photos remind me of that wonderful time in my life. I didn't fully appreciate all of the sites there until after we returned to the States--the little Venetian glass shops, the fossils on the beach, the German turets, the old olive trees, the locals on the beach searching for sea urchins, the poppies that lined the shore, or the old man on a cart being pulled behind a donkey. You live in a beautiful country and you have captured much of its essence in your photos. Thanks again for sharing.

Laura

Adam De Frang , July 29, 2008; 11:40 A.M.

You have a great eye for unique compositions and for expressive scenes on the street, you have many photos I could just stare at for awhile, picking out the symbols. A really lovely collection of images, best of luck to you in your future endevors.

Stefano Bevacqua , July 30, 2008; 09:45 A.M.

Bellissimio portfolio, molto vario, pieno di colpi d'occhio unici. Abbiamo parecchio in comune! Complimenti. Continua a meravigliarci con i tuoi sguardi sulle cose.

So many amazing works here, thank YOU for sharing.

Micki F. , August 05, 2008; 01:15 P.M.

Your portfolio is filled with the world!

It is filled with light and contrast and the feeling that when I step out into the street I would see things as you have made them in your eyes. A total magnificent Giuseppe way. Your style is your own and I can see that in every picture.

You are unique and you are fabulous that you have perfected that.

My favorite thing that you do is your street stuff and how you seem to capture simple things and make us see them as glorious.

Thank you for opening my eyes! ~ micki

Din Menasheroff , August 06, 2008; 09:17 A.M.

Sicuramente Roma è una città che offre mille spunti ed occasioni per fare delle belle foto, ma credo che bisogna anche esserne capaci, e tu lo sei senza ombra di dubbio. Un portfolio fantastico, ti ho aggiunto alla mia personale lista di preferiti perchè voglio tornare ancora a farti visita e cercare di imparare qualcosa da te. Congratulazioni, a presto!!

Paolo Carpi , August 10, 2008; 01:23 A.M.

Ho avuto finalmente un poco di tempo per visitare il tu portfolio con un pò di calma, sono in vacanza,e , cosa importante, dispongo di una connessione wifi... Ci sarebbe ovviamente da scrivere un trattato, ma scritto da me non sarebbe adeguato... La prima cosa che mi colpisce è lo straordinario "senso grafico", riesci sempre a trovare un perfetto equilibrio di forme e di prospettive anche in una realtà "contorta" come Roma, probabilmente ti muovi in orari particolari... Ho visto che hai avuto "problemi" con i rates, capita spesso, anchio, a volte, cancello delle foto, so di non essere Salgado, ma poi vedo delle volgari cartoline con decine di rates 7 o 6 e penso che i rates anonimi dovrebbero scomparire. Ciao, Paolo

Hi Guiseppe, I'm very impressed by your portfolio. You have a very artistic view on things and know how to make fine pictures of ordinary things. cheers, Hans

What Do We Tell the World About Giuseppe Pasquale as a Photographer?

1. He is prodigious at his craft; his output is enormous.

2. That is because is always is 'seeing' things and wants to record their 'specialness' as only he sees it.

3. And he 'sees' things that most don't 'see' not only because he has good vision, but also because he has extraordinary intelligence. Intelligence is defined as the ability to 'see' or identify 'meaningful relationships', and Giuseppe has the ability to do that in ways that few photographers can.

4. The ability to 'see' in a special way is revealed in his portfolio; he 'sees' interesting things all around him and 'sees' relationships that others may not think important, until after Giuseppe highlights them with his camera, and then they seem to take on new meaning. That is the power of Giuseppe's vision.

5. Giuseppe's 'vision' is not just a function of intelligence, though it is a function of that also, but also one of extraordinary curiosity. One can wander through his portfolio and literally follow Giuseppe through the days and hours of his life, looking perhaps through the viewfinder at his own shoes standing next to a leaf on a fancy stonework outdoor floor, and have a new appreciation for a man who can get away with taking a photo of his own feet AND have it be a success. Or man walking through a square or countless other scenes, sometimes from a distance, sometimes very close up.

6. Giuseppe learns from everything with his apparently insatiable curiosity and intellect, and one presumes that his photography is a melding of his own high education with an increasingly (and always high) sense of visual acuity.

7. Giuseppe now is approaching a new level in his photography. In earlier times he appears to have focused (excuse the pun) primarily on inanimate objects, or if they were animate, they were contextual but did not relate so much to the graphics or 'geometry' of an image as well as 'tell a story'. Being able to tell a story and and have outstanding composition were to be the ultimate test of Giuseppe's vision. (Giuseppe has a strong sense of composition and geometry within his soul, and it shows through in his photography/)

8. At this new level, Giuseppe has been learning to incorporate the entire scene into pleasing compositions aided by their graphics, AND to tell a story and do so in the same photo -- to literally meld graphics and composition ('geometry' as Henri Cartier-Bresson famously called it in somewhat errant English) with 'stories' and to use ALL the visual elements to make an elaborate, technically stunning photo and at the same time to tell a good story.

Those stories sometimes are just a little subtle, such as the recent post of a derelict bicycle against a wall next to a sign that says in Italian 'pedestrian zone' as though someone actually did alight (maybe in some decade past) from that decaying bike propped against an old stone wall, and actually did hoist it on its side and place it (artistically) there..

All in all such a photo reveals, a subtle but somewhat hilarious jest; a visual and symbolic visual remark about 'mode of travel' and even 'regulations' for those who look closely enough, and many do.

9. With his most recent work, especially that which incorporates people most intelligently into his compositions, Giuseppe has become more than a casual observer who can take his time and make everything 'just so', and now has become also a hunter, and -- while even now he makes sure everything is 'just so' -- he has the patience, foresight and new-found vision to appear almost to 'will' the elements of his photos (especially involving people as graphical elements) into place.

10. When a photographer appears to have that rare ability to 'will' people as subjects into place, it really is not magic at all. It comes from watching and analyzing thousands and tens of thousands of scenes as they unfold and develop, then over time as they deconstruct. And by taking tens of thousands (or more) photos, then analyzing each one asking 'how could I have made it better?'

11. Whereas before, Giuseppe appeared content to wander around and take his time to visualize things, then record them meticulously, he has added now a new 'sport' into his photography -- the ability to predict through his vast experience when and where certain people will do certain things or adopt certain attitudes or walks so that they become 'plastic' 'movers' within his art, and he merely has either to manipulate their placement through changing his position and/or camera settings or wait until the next person comes along whose attitude and/or movements fulfill his vision. It may be a long wait of a short wait, or even one that is unfulfilled. But Giuseppe for the most part 'see's the photo he is going to take before it occurs in reality -- he previsuallizes it.

12. Giuseppe now is more than an identifier of interesting and special relationships among visual objects, he has become a predictor of how people will move and behave within their graphical surroundings to create a pleasing composition and/or to tell a story and -- in best of his work -- to do both.

In short, he is approaching the ultimate stage of his craft as an artist with a camera.

It may appear thus that Giuseppe is magically transporting his subjects and scenes into juxtaposition in his latest work. In reality I am sure, he has walked many hundreds even thousands of kilometers, examined countless scenes and then regarded the behavior of subjects so very carefully, so that eventually he has developed a 'sixth sense' about the scenes he is preparing to photograph.

That perhaps is the hardest of all parts of photography to achieve: master of street photography.

Of that, Giuseppe is achieving stardom with his unique, highly-developed vision. And I couldn't have begun to write these things if I didn't feel them in my soul.

John (Crosley)

Jack McRitchie , September 11, 2008; 06:04 P.M.

Giuseppe

Well, I'd be a fool to try to compete with my friend John Crosley whose insightful review of your work pretty much says all that needs to be said (and only as John could say it). I will add only this. I deeply appreciate your kindness and the consideration you have shown me and other photographers. Your comments are unfailingly supportive and affirming even when you offer a helpful suggestion. Your work is among the very best on photonet but it would be nothing without the great heart within it. My best regards, Jack

Liz Weisiger , September 11, 2008; 08:29 P.M.

I believe I know what art is now. It's life, as we see it, and live it. I am a fan of yours. I will study your work.

John O'Keefe-Odom , September 11, 2008; 11:06 P.M.

Good Job, Giuseppe!

Guiseppe, what an extensive collection of quality works! Good job, man. J.

Giuseppe Pasquali , September 12, 2008; 12:56 P.M.

Dear John,

Dad (1971 - My Very First Photo - shot with a Polaroid Model 20 "Swinger")

I was seven years old and as far as I recall it was a warm day. Yes, sometimes in January, in Tuscany, by the sea, we have glorious sunny, warm days. It was Saturday 13 February 1971, a few days after the landing of Apollo 14, a few months before April 24, when five hundred thousand people in Washington, DC and 125,000 in San Francisco would have marched in protest against the Vietnam War.

That day I framed my father in the viewfinder, I waited for the passing couple to be exactly in the middle, and shot. I shot my first photo with my brand new Polaroid Model 20 "Swinger".

This afternoon I kept that photo from the drawer and looked at it, just after having read another time your review. Photography has been a loyal companion in this long, beautiful, sorrowful, magic journey called life. As you said with good words I am entering a new artistic stage, where the old rules, my beloved books, all those imaginary photographies I have taken in the silence of my solitary walks, all those works I have shot and hidden, and those shown here, instantly merge one into another, while I dance through the people acting on the road like it's a huge play, searching for a pov, another one from which tell my story. First time I felt this strange new feeling was in January, when cataract had made me more than half blind, and I insisted in going out and look through that yellowish mist because I knew in a confused way that something was going to happen just in front of my lens.

You are a very sensible man, and a very good photographer who knows what I mean while I say "now I feel like dancing in the street". Did you notice that I titled my last folder walkin' - talkin' blues? This is because I felt like I was dancing while I was shooting. Photography is sensitivity, perception of geometry (God bless H.C.- B. in that interview he said more things with two words and one single gesture than millions of critiques with their pens) sudden eclipse of consciousness, because the image reveals itself in a single, brilliant instant and you get it or it's memory. Oh yes, now I know I can plan the shot, but time, and coincidence no, you cannot plan them, you can only hope that some physical rules will behave like they have always done in the past millennia, and stay there, behind your camera, finger on the trigger, ready.

I thank you, and thank all those good friends who share their wisdom and vision with me, because a big part of my growth is due to constant study and reflection on their works, because this helps me being more severe with my own works (those shot and those that will be). I should also thank my Linguistics Master, Chiarissimo Professor Riccardo Ambrosini, who recently died: he teached me the importance of studying hard and always ask "why?", because natural gifts are nothing if you don't feed them.

This is an emotional writing that I post here with a gift for you: my very first photo. Thank you John, because you have been the very first person who has looked at my work and explained me what is happening inside this photographer's head in these present days. I'll 'go with the force because the force is particularly strong around me' and you have unveiled this to my eyes.

Thank you, Giuseppe

Giuseppe Pasquali , September 12, 2008; 05:39 P.M.

Dear friends, I'd like to thank you all

for your support and your generous comments.

Kent your portfolio is one of the first I noticed, and has been a font of inspiration;
Christine R, I am happy you found my advice helpful, and thank you for your kind words;
Carlos your b/w is really good and I am honored by your visit;
Diego, I think we all are here to learn, and I am happy if you find my work (and/or words) useful
Tony thanks for the compliments, you have a very good eye for color and I keep following your works
Pradeep thank you for your comment, and thank you for your documentary effort in India
Jack I blush, and my heart beats faster: I don't want to end my career like that cone ;-)) Your works have the rare quality to go behind these three dimensions we live in - and it's a great gift for us
Lizyes, art is life, and life is "now", and is always the same and always different. These are the words that the river waters spoke to the ear of an ancient greek philosopher, and are one of the best indrotuction to this long play that we call life.
John O'K thank you for your appreciation, this way I had the opportunity to know and appreciate your work

Thank you all my friends, Giuseppe

Giuseppe di Pietrantonio , September 15, 2008; 06:11 P.M.

Carissimo amico omonimo

Stavo guardandomi le tue ultime foto e poi ho rivisto il tuo portfolio e mi sono accorto che non ti ho fatto mai commenti!E' grave!..Il bello e' che dopo aver letto gli altri commenti non so piu' cos'altro aggiungere...Innanzitutto ho trovato splendidi i tuoi ultimi scatti...Tu hai un modo veramente diverso di fare fotografia,nel senso che stai uno o piu' gradini sopra la maggior parte di noi,per tecnica,occhio,capacita' di composizione....i tuoi B&N sono in assoluto tra i migliori di PN...ed io ho imparato molto guardando i tuoi lavori..Sei un grande Giuseppe.Con amicizia e stima e senza adulazioni un saluto dal tuo omonimo...

Ana Stipanic , September 22, 2008; 11:24 A.M.

Complimenti per questo portfolio straordinario! Devo tornare qui molte volte per vedere tutte le foto caturate dal suo occhio attentissimo!

Sergio de los Reyes , September 24, 2008; 02:57 A.M.

Todos mis respetos, Pasquali. Quiero aprovechar esta ocasion para felicitarte por tu trabajo y por tu grandisimo talento. Agradezco mucho que compartas tu trabajo con nosotros porque me es de una gran inspiracion. Tengo la esperanza de que un dia pueda tomar fotos con la calidad y el espiritu que poseen las tuyas. Considereme un admirador de su trabajo. Lo saluda, Sergio de los Reyes.

Alberto Mascali , September 24, 2008; 08:51 A.M.

Ciao Giuseppe! Sono un tuo ammiratore, lo sai bene, e proprio per questo faccio il bastian contrario; se la mia intenzione e' darti un contributo devo necessariamente uscire dal coro delle lodi. La mia sollecitazione: restringi la scelta dei tuoi scatti. Tu mi dirai che ognuno fa quel che vuole (ci mancherebbe), ma hai raggiunto livelli cosi' alti che, a parer mio, meritano una certa omogeneita' di qualità (la tua qualita', quella che tu solo puoi esprimere). Esempio pratico: prendi la cartella dei lavori recenti e scegli solo uno scatto. Soltanto uno. Mi sono permesso...., pensa quante me ne diranno...., ma non importa; non mi sembra giusto che un fotografo grandioso come te rischi la "sindrome da iperproduzione" (sento gia' i fischi....). Sempre con affetto. Alberto

Francesco Legnani , September 28, 2008; 01:27 P.M.

Torno sempre volentieri a vedere il tuo portfolio. cgs!

Raymond Banfield , September 29, 2008; 10:56 P.M.

Giuseppe

First off, thank you for your wonderful comments on " Band of Light ". It was much appreciated believe me. Secondly it brought me to your folio. You have just taken me on a journey of all things Italian and for that I must thank you yet again. I really love your black and white photographs. So clear and so vibrant. I have taken the liberty of adding a couple of them to " my favorites ". I will be visiting more often to see what wonderful additions you have added to an already beautiful body of work. Ciao...RAY

Giuseppe Pasquali , September 30, 2008; 05:09 A.M.

Dear friends thank you for your visits

and comments.

Giuseppe, Ana, Sergio, thank you for your compliments, they are a big incentive and make me happy. I love to share emotions with you.

Alberto, you point out a good question, and I thank you by heart for this: am I producing (and posting) too much? Should I post less photos, maybe only the ones I think (feel) are the best? I don't know, really. Maybe my portfolio is a living chaos, and I should reorder my works for a better "readability", or I should delete those shots that undermine the portfolio "homogeneity" and uniformity. I will think over it, and I would be happy to know other friends opinion. You were the first person to mark me as "interesting" and you can be sure it is reciprocal.

Francesco, your visits are a pleasure, feel free to comment and share your thoughts whenever you like.

Raymond, that shot of yours is a very good one, and your compliments and appreciation are really welcome because they come from a very good photographer, thank you.

Marco Vergano , October 12, 2008; 07:31 P.M.

Dopo un periodo di relativa assenza da PN, sono tornato sul tuo portfolio, piuttosto riorganizzato dalla mia ultima visita: complimenti davvero per la tecnica eccellente e la forza comunicativa, alcune sezioni sono dei veri capolavori.. Scusa per l'italiano, un po' di pigrizia mentale a volte :-) A presto! Marco

Hi Giuseppe,

First of all, thank you for sharing your outstanding portfolio here and for your comments and ratings which I find really helpful.

About your portfolio, it's difficult to be original after all the comments on your gallery but I can't help writing a few words here as well. I find your gallery one of the best on this site. The management of light, the creativity in composing your images, the stories you tell and the problems you touch are the evidence of a great talent and I guess a great mind. Your workshop is impressive and lots of your photos are a useful tool for me to develop my skills in photography. I also appreciate the tips and suggestions you give on different forums on this (superb therefore:)) website.

You're doing a great job here so keep up the good work. May God bless you too:)

Giuseppe

Ciao fratello,

Looking through your work for me was a voyage of discovery where ones eyes would open in synchronizing with ones heart, led by a visual truth told in a narrative so bewitching that when leaving the spell continues to hold for some time after. Who & what are we? What deeds and destinies we seek to pacify our inner hungers our passions our dreams remains as mysterious as life it’s self.

Thank you for such

Hugh

Auguri, Giuseppe 2!!!

Xmas, by Luca della Robbia.

Dear friends, the problem if Jesus was God or not, it’s not for me. Only a thing is sure, his word of love and his example of life are good for all, without differences of religion, even for the atheists. All you know, from many centuries, in a lot of old cultures, in this period of the hear, people celebrated festivities and propitiatory rites: in the moment in which Sun was on the most law point of the horizon and was for starting again, slowly, to go up. This thing was also in the old Roman calendar. Christianity didn’t make other thing that “to transplant” the presumed anniversary of Christ’s birthday in the day devoted to the Sun. And this is just the rebirth of the Sun of Love that I wish to all you, my dear friends of PN, to you, to me who, loving photography, we need in our soul, in our passion, for our art,…LIGHT! We all, all over the world, are crossing a very difficult moment. Like many other persons, I think, considering the way without return mankind was undertaking, it’s necessary a big act of love towards ourselves, all, one towards the other and, towards this our big…”spaceship” named Earth! Warm Regads, my friends, from…Ciaomau!

Antonio Da Re , December 19, 2008; 06:16 P.M.

Ciao Giuseppe, ho guardato con calma i tuoi portfolio e devo riconoscere che hai una mano felice per il BW (ma mi piacciono anche alcune foto a colori) e sopra tutto quelle di Roma. Condivido il tuo modo di inquadrare la scena e la ricerca del dettaglio. A presto. Antonio

It was a tasteful journey while surfing at the folders of your portfolio. Very well composed photos are here.. I will visit your portfolio frequently, keep posting. Congratulations..

dale moreau , February 09, 2009; 08:53 A.M.

A pleasure

Giuseppe,

A friend pointed me to your Cathedral reflection shot and that, of course, led me to your portfolio.

I was stunned by the consistency of your work. it is spectacular. very strong graphic selections. You work hard and it shows. ( if you don't work hard, I am envious) dale

dale moreau , February 09, 2009; 09:12 A.M.

Me again,

Now that I have had a few minutes to let your work settle in.

I hesitated in making any references to HCB for what I felt was an obvious influence. Hesitated because I didn't want to suggest that somehow you were "Too" similar because it was apparent that while there is familiarity with some of your images, they are very much your own voice. I finally decided that the best way to express my point was to relate you to a well studied Jazz musician who, while delivering his own singular message, finds the fun in a strong recollection and momentary presentation of his influences.

I will visit many times both as a reference for inspiration and in anticipation of new work. thanks again, dale

Jody Frost , February 10, 2009; 12:06 P.M.

Astounding!

I am moved to tears viewing your portfolio. You are truly in a class of your own. These images here speak to me on such a deep and profound level. My God! To capture the essence of what it is to be human as you do!? What a talent, a skill, a brilliant gift! You have a kind of vision that the most perfect sight would miss! Bravo Maestro! Jody Frost

Giuseppe Pasquali , February 11, 2009; 05:19 A.M.

Thank you for your comments.

Thank you dear friends for your appreciation of my works. It's quite a long a long time I don't reply to your comments and I get this occasion to thank you by heart of all your kind words.

Dale, you are right: HCB (and Federico Scianna, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Mario Giacomelli - among the others -) have had quite a strong influence on my photography. I am honoured by your comparison to a Jazz musician: Bernard of Chartres (as reported by John of Salisbury) wrote that we are "quasi nanos, gigantium humeris insidentes, we are "like dwarfs on the shoulders of giants". I think this is really true: our visions, our advancements are possible only if we study and meditate on the achievements made in the past by our predecessors and in the present by our colleagues.

Jody, I thank you for your sincere appreciation of my work. I share my photos because I believe they say something about me, and my vision of the world: I blushed for your tears of deep understanding. I won't forget your words, thank you,

Giuseppe

Roxana Chiru , February 15, 2009; 07:01 A.M.

Grazie Giuseppe per il tuo commento alla mia foto "hai visto il lupo?". Non mi stanco mai di guardare le tue foto. Credo che il tuo "lavoro" sia davvero tra i più interessanti di questa community (come ho già avuto modo di dirti in passato). Grazie ancora e ancora bravo !

Beautifull portfolio, full of strong images. Especially your street captures are great, showing an excellent photograzphic eye dfor the right moment. I did read about your exposition in Bruges. Since it's not too far from where I live I will try to pass by. Moreover since I also got a invitation from the same gallery to display some of my architecture images later this year

You have such an excellent portfolio with so beautiful photos.

Markku Salonen , February 26, 2009; 04:13 P.M.

Giuseppe,

I just noticed you will have a photo exhibition in Belgium. My sincere congratulations and best wishes for many visitors enjoying your work I looked at on that Belgium Gallery site. I must say you did a fine selection of your work. Unfortunately I can't afford personal visit to that gallery. Feel free to email how all this became a reality, thanks - and good luck with set-up and all!

Giuseppe,

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my photo. I have commented on some of your individual photos, which are amazing. Today I wanted to stop by and look at some more of your portfolio, which I must say inspires me to keep shooting.

Best Regards, Keith

Giuseppe

I would like to congratulate you once more with your beautifull exhibition in Bruges. I knew your work from the internet but seeing it in large prints on the wall made it still a lot stronger. The way you capture people and the play with light and shadows are amazing

Hello Giuseppe,

Thank you for the generous rating of my photo (Screw). I'm happy that you liked it and also that I have been brought to your wonderful portfolio. Your ability for street capture is exceptional. Best wishes, --George

Sergio Occhiuzzo , April 27, 2009; 05:41 A.M.

Non è la prima volta che visito il tuo portfolio! La fotografia deve, a mio modesto avviso, emozionare! E tu riesci a lasciare il tuo "messaggio"! Il bianco e nero trova in questo tuo lavoro una marcia in più! Complimenti, ciao Sergio

rich t , May 04, 2009; 05:53 P.M.

I really like your portfolio.

Hi, Giuseppe! I love your photos! Thanks for commenting on my portfolio!

Nicolo Tassoni , May 13, 2009; 12:14 P.M.

Dear Giuseppe, I had previously noticed many of your shots in the Critique Forum, but tonight I finally looked at your portfolio. I am really impressed, you have wonderful photos but your portfolio as a whole is really amazing, there is an exceptional "consistency" of the photos and you have been able to narrate stories throughout your different galleries. You especially captured the essence of Rome! Congratulations, Nicolo'

Drew Bayless , May 28, 2009; 11:03 A.M.

Thank you very much for all your messages and comments about my work. I really appreciate hearing from you. Its quite difficult for me to write / type a response.

Buongiorno Giuseppe,

temo sia difficile trovare parole che non siano già state scirtte in tutti i commenti che precedono il mio. Il mio wow potrebbe riassumere tutta l'ammirazione per il tuo portfolio.

A presto,

Stefano.

Thanks for the comment on my piece.."prison life"..it is a shame that the entire collection cannot be displayed as it is a just piece and gives a good insight into a place people dont see..

Your gallery is excellent..keep shooting and making art my friend..

Very striking images that will take me a long time to look over and comment. Thanks for stopping by my folders too.

Fei Sha , November 11, 2009; 03:27 P.M.

Magnifique

Giuseppe, this is an amazing portfolio. I live in Paris, knowing most of the places photographed, I can appreciate even better the beauty of your pictures. I have little time to take photographs, when I have time and courage, more often I am short of inspiration. Now that I get some inspiration from your portfolio I hope my next walk around in Paris in be more fruitful. Thanks for sharing you beautiful photographs. Cheers , Fei

Alejandro E. Montiel B. , November 28, 2009; 10:10 A.M.

Eres el mejor fotógrafo de Roma que haya visto... sigue dando estas imàgenes maravillosas.

hi giuseppe your pictures are a true inspiration! lovely pieces of art. all the best. samme

Axel Cordes , December 15, 2009; 01:55 P.M.

Giuseppe

On the reply to Johns post you said:

...is sensitivity, perception of geometry (God bless H.C.- B. in that interview he said more things with two words and one single gesture than millions of critiques with their pens) ...

Great how you put into words - my thoughts have been: This is all what I'm not able to say, but seam to be in me. I read a lot his life and work. The words 'Coincidence' - 'Geometry' etc now always shine up when I read them.

So, reading your words is really a pleasure as your images are - each of yours deserve to be watched with time and patience. I'll stay on having a look to the one and the other day by day.

Thank you for sharing your work.

(Also thank you for your comments dropped on some of my shots - I think your really nailed it)

All the best Axel

Giuseppe Pasquali , December 16, 2009; 10:43 A.M.

Axel,

I thank you very very much for the attention you pay to my work and for the long, intelligent comments you posted on some of them. I have always thought that every photograph is like a broken fragment of the mirror in which the photographer's soul is reflected. We abandon this fragment to the waves of time and light. Someone will discover it and give it a new meaning each time he observes it. Thanks a lot for having discovered those messages in a bottle. I feel less alone in this strange, beautiful island they call life. Ciao, Giuseppe

Thank you so much for your comment on one of my photos; it brought me back to your portfolio where I have visited many times to look at your amazing work.

One Year Since You Disappeared, Brother

Brother Giuseppe

It's been just shy of one year since anything has been heard of you by anybody I can find, including an entire search of the Internet except a publication of your work scheduled and prepared prior to your disappearance.

I miss you badly, and I know the photo community does too.

We miss your work and I miss not only that but you with your generous heart and soul.

When and if you can break away from your silence, please be in touch.

Your warm heart is greatly and dearly missed.

Brother John

 

Mark Hudson , March 14, 2011; 06:31 P.M.

I love your portfolio Giuseppe, it's extremely inspirational. Ironically I found it whilst looking at photos of someone who had rated me very harshly. They'd added one of your pictures as a favorite. It's very lucky I did,a after feeling a bit demoralised by bad feedback with no constructive help, It was great to see your creativity. All the best, Mark

Jorge Arturo Perez Morales , June 25, 2011; 02:29 P.M.

The portfolio

Rich of art through the photography. Impressive and and excellent reference in this website.

Keep on sharing more of your work.

Antonio Giusti , December 31, 2012; 05:37 P.M.

Ciao Giuseppe

Felice Anno Nuovo! Un cordiale saluto, Antonio
