I’m an italian photographer and in the last months I’m working to a new project, “Raindrop Blues”. Raindrops, like in a blues song, fall with a repetitive but fascinating rhythm, awakening, as they were called in XVII century, the “blue demons”: a suffused sensation of melancholia. Raindrop Blues Project tries to dip the viewer in a sort of oneiric reality, where the rain seems to fall on everyone, creating evocative images where every element – the street, the sky, the characters, the viewer – is involved in a romantic and, in the same time, melancholic feeling.
I realize them with a double exposition between a wet window and a street scene with rain. In your opinion, can I call it “Street Photography” or not? It’s a street scene, but it’s not totally real because there is another level with raindrops. What do you think? Thank you for all the answers.
