EXPLORING THE STREETS OF TURIN./
DOMENICO MINGRONE STARTED TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS 10 YEARS AGO WHILE STUDYING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TURIN./
THESE DAYS, HE WORKS FOR A WORLDWIDE SPORTS COMPANY, BUT HIS SPARE TIME IS STILL SPENT AMONG PICTURES, MOVIES, BOOKS + JAZZ - + HE OFTEN HAS HIS CAMERA IN HIS HAND./
HE STARTED OUT TAKING LANDSCAPES + URBAN ARCHITECTURE, BUT THE POWER OF STREET PHOTOGRAPHY SOON WON HIM OVER: "I LEARNED HOW TO GET LOST IN THE STREETS + IN THE CROWDS, DURING MY NUMEROUS TRAVELS AROUND EUROPE." - "PEOPLE + STREETS HAVE A UNIQUE WAY OF TELLING STORIES," HE EXPLAINS. "THEY OFFER EXTRAORDINARY MOMENTS IN WHICH IT IS POSSIBLE TO CAPTURE ALL THE VOICES OF THE WORLD."/
HERE ARE SOME OF DOMENICO'S FAVOURITE PLACES IN HIS HOME CITY OF TURIN...
"I love getting lost in the labyrinthine streets of this village, built by the Romans centuries ago. In its narrow streets there are typical clubs, intimate + gourmet restaurants, all types of cuisine, tea rooms, pubs + soft lights everywhere."
"Cinema Massimo is one of the symbolic places of the city with the Cinema Museum. Each year it hosts the Turin Film Festival , one of the most important film festivals in Italy. Throughout the year, it offers a vast calendar of events + both past + contemporary film programming."
"A unique meeting place for jazz lovers, this place turns into a delicious restaurant. It's located in Valdo Fusi square, which also houses an extraordinary original brewery called 'Open Baladin'."
