"Luigi is one of my newer contacts on flickr. He has a great photostream with every kind of pictures. I really love his landscape shots. His every day life pictures are great as well. Also his portrait shots are relly lovely.
I enjoy visiting his stream every day. Luigi is a great contact.
Keep doing what your doing. I love to follow you in the future."

La fotografia come scusa.
Entrare ed essere sorpresi è un tutt'uno.
L'immagine è sempre il gradino di partenza,
il sasso nello stagno, la rima da baciare...
...troverete piccole cose, artefatte, sbiadite e scondite.
Vi sembrerà di conoscere luoghi, atmosfere, sesazioni.
Proverete ad odorare le immagini,
...o a sentirvi parte integrante di esse.
Avrete paura nella nebbia, la sentirete popolata,
ne sarete consapevolmente circondati...
Molte sensazioni non saranno spiegabili,
altre lo saranno in modo irrazionale.
Chi cerca la roboante presenza di HDR o di effetti scenici volti pagina...
chi ama soffermarsi tra le pieghe,
continuando un dialogo mai banale, mai finito, mai perso...
...chi vuole godere del mistero di un nulla che avvolge,
accarezza e intriga...
chi vuole trovare un connubbio mai scontato con versi e musica...
sul filo di un flebile soffio di poesia...
Entri pure, respiri e si immerga.
Spalmato su di un caotico filo conduttore troverà
l'autore, i suoi pensieri, le cose e le persone che ama,
tutto cocatenato da nebbie e abbinamenti arditi,
da invenzioni e magie.
Appariranno tesori ...svelati poco per volta,
tangibili o sognati poco importa...
Chi, infine, vuole trovare Luigi,
QUI troverà il suo ritratto completo,
nudo, per chi sa leggere,
in divenire...come tutti noi."

"sei un artista..."

mihaela muntean says:
"With the power of his words and the magic of his photography, it's hard not to fall under Lu's spell.
He is first and foremost an artist at heart.
A visual novelist and poet with a stream of pure delight.
I consider myself lucky to be able to witness it.
Thank you for being here.Thank you for being my friend.
I couldn't have done it without your support.

"You have a poet that takes pictures. What you expect is that his poetry will be put into images.
Correct, except for the fact that he goes further beyond that. Follow his stream, follow his line of thought and you'll plounge into his life, into his dreams and his world. That place that is somewhere nowhere, that is something and nothing, is worth many thousands words that I don't know how to express, but I know how to feel. Thank you Luigi."

"lumase . . . luce . . . lumière . . . light in any language.
luigi is one of the truest light-poets on flickr. his work is refined, beautiful, always elegant, sometimes confronting - a garden of delights, earthly and other.
i am drawn back to luigi's garden time and time again."

1. La macchina fotografica è il prolungamento visibile della sua anima.
2. Un padre che immortala la bellezza delle sue figlie con tutto l'amore possibile.
3. Un uomo sensibile alle variazioni del cuore come alle variazioni della luce.
4. Un esteta della parola.
16. Credo che i 4 punti precedenti siano sufficienti per dire quello che Luigi trasmette..."

Jason (Audrey's Dad) says:
"Ah, my friend Luigi; writer of images, capturer of poetry. In his photostream thoughtful words and artful images blend in a deeply felt portrait of life, love, family and the natural world.
We both come from places that straddle the 45th parallel, halfway between the pole and equator, and so his visions of Italia are both striking and familiar in their climate and quality of light. I have been amazed by his work from my very first days exploring this place called Flickr, and my appreciation has never ceased since.
I look forward to many more superb visions and poems (and songs) still to come all of which are sure to amaze."
February 3rd, 2009
"Luigi's passion for life clearly comes through in his pictures, as well as in his words.
'Intense' is the word that most describes his outstanding work.
He is not only extremely talented, but Lu is also a good man in every aspect of his life.
I am fortunate to have known him for quite some time now, and to consider him one of my closest friends.
Enjoy his pictures, pay attention to his words. There is always more than meets the eye"

"Il suo stream è da "usare" con moderazione: potrebbe provocare...dipendenza. ;-)
Perchè le sue non sono foto: sono sensazioni.
Da toccare con gli occhi.
Provare per credere."
October 20th, 2008
"I address the quintessential artist in him whose remarkable photographs are sublime works of arts and whose poetry are pulchitrudinous expressions yet of his soul.
I have yet to know whether he is a photographer or a poet first, suffice it to say, this man is a genius.
The many awards received was the testimonial for the mark of excellence achieved in the awards group we had.
You have been recognized as masterful photographer and remain acknowledged as one of the best here in Flickr."

A n t o i n e t t e says:
"For over a year I've been following the astonishing works of Luigi Masella, not always able to keep up with his amazing pace. I truly believe Lumase is a rare genius whose passion for expression oozes out of his pores every minute of the day.
I call him the "flickr Laureate" and can honestly say I've never encountered a person so well-versed in the arts than this brilliant man who excels in all areas of creativity from photography to verse to composition. To be able to move another human being with such talents is a God-given gift.
Allen Ginsberg says, "The only thing that can save the world is the reclaiming of the awareness of the world. That's what poetry does."
I believe Luigi will make a huge dent in reclaiming the awareness of the world with all the gifted contributions he shares. We are blessed to have him here in the flickr community!"

"To me....the perfect Flickr world is a picture not just worth 1000 words...but to have an amazing thought-provoking picture WITH 100 amazing thought-provoking words. Some times a title is all you need to set the platform. It is an art form I thoroughly feel. There isn’t many with this style…..I can say, without hesitation, Lu has this gift of artistry."

RougeEtNoire - very busy says:
"Your photographs are the most amazing I have seen in any category you chose to apply yourself to. I hope you are extremely famous and that people (if they have any sense at all) are lining up to show your art.
You have heard all this before but so what: you have incredible editing skills and your eye is the best in the world because no matter what you look at you bring out its soul even if is supposedly an inanimate object.
Thank you for sharing. The world looks better through your eye! Sei bravissimo. Continua per sempre."

"Luigi, la passione per la fotografia per eccellenza!"
February 1st, 2008
"Le fotografie di Luigi sono il biglietto di prima fila per immergersi in un mondo fatto di attimi irripetibili, dettagli unici, avvolti nella poesia di chi ha tante fessure sia nel cuore che nell'anima, dove entrano ed escono amore e luce.
Molte volte rimango davanti alle sue foto per un tempo senza tempo, come una bambina meravigliata e rapita da qualcosa che a parole non riusciró mai ad esprimere, ma che nasce da quella parte di me che é a stretto contatto con le emozioni più profonde e genuine.
Grazie a questo Uomo-Poeta-Fotografo per ciò che riesce a creare, a donare e perché considera la vita una continua occasione di stupore e gioia, scoperta e meraviglia."

strelitzia --- says:
" I like looking at his photos full of poetry, his talent, his style interests me. Every day I look at his photos which intrigues me, move me , I bring a quite particular interest to this stream.
I perceive through his photos, sensibility, kindness, it is someone very charming
i don't know how to express my feeling in english , it's difficult ...
i'm happy to know you on flickr , and maybe one day , if you come in France, it would be a pleasure to see you

"Luigi's photo stream stands out for its unique poetic, experimental, artistic, philosophical, and avant-garde photography as well as angelic photos of his two angelic daughters.
Luigi stands out on Flickr as a published poet (I haven't seen a second published poet on Flickr yet!) and outstanding photographer.
Luigi stands out among Flickrites with his self-less love for friends. When I apologized once for having not been able to comment his stream for a long time. He said, "I don't look for your comment. I look for your friendship." These words moved me to tears right on the spot. Supporting, loving, open-minded, Luigi has proved himself a worthy friend to me since I first joined Flickr a year ago.
Dear Lu, you are a friend for life!"

A V A says:
"Luigi is one of the most talented artists that exist on this website. He is not only gifted in so many areas, but he is also a kind, wise man. He is a worshiper of beauty and nature, a wonderful writer, a great father, and a friend like few.
I have been blessed to have crossed paths with him, and I look forward to many more years of friendship.
Enjoy his stream!"
October 1st, 2007
"Luigi has a heart of gold. Such a charming gentleman with very interesting photography and beautiful, eloquent prose. Listen to his words, see what he sees. Always different and never the same, and diversity is a very good thing!
A pleasure to call you a friend of mine, Luigi. Thank you, always, for your friendship."

"Luigi is quite a source of inspiration. His aspiration in capturing moment and at the same time bind them with wonderful poetry.. is admirable. Sometimes.. it could even touch to the core.."

"The perfect blending of Secular & Spiritual, Science & Art, Classical & Futuristic, Thechnology & Passion-ry, Philosophy & Poetry. A Nourisher, and a Nourishee. Lu, Lu, Lu-Lu-Lu, glad to meet a piece of You."

"Luigi Masella is a very bright and shiny star in this community. Just look into those eyes, If you take him to your heart he will do nothing less than encourage and lift up your effort with his being. There is so much warmth and caring in his words and pitures, a true artist and a true kindered spirit to me."

Stefan Elf says:
"Luigi has become one of my favourite photographers here on Flickr. He uses subtle colours and contrast to emphasize the meaning of his pictures, creating poetic presentations of the world around us."
June 1st, 2007
"Luigi brings a part of his world on display for our enjoyment here on Flickr. Letting us join him on his experiences he shows us a world full of color, forms, mystery and emotion.
Lumase's/Luigi's photostream is one I always look forward to visiting."
