my last upload on flickr dates back to June 13, 2007 - i subsequently retired from the world and went missing, many things went by, i also stopped taking pictures for a while then got back to it, then thought: let's try this again.

my old work, i guess, is best browsed here:

as for the most recent one, well, i'll be posting it as days go by.

    "The work of Tsunami Notes is an amazing combination of the emotional and cerebral, of color and form, of grit and beauty. He is one of my Flickr favorites; his images are things I see in dreams, visions of an alternate universe, sometimes utopian, sometimes hellish. He is an amazing artist and I'm so glad to have found him on Flickr."

    "Paolo has the ability to fascinate me with his shots. He is very introspective and it is really for this characteristic that I like. It is not banal. I follow him, as it was my teacher."

    "paolo adjusts the camera angle, shoots -- and we get this visual bacchanal, literary philosophic otherworldly images that draw the viewer in and in and in. he is, as carlos saura remarked about one of the dancers he filmed, a great seducer of intelligence. paolo listens to the voices the rest of us trained ourselves away from and no longer hear. and the result: complexity, beauty, stunning originality, cinematic moments that are complete within themselves yet spin in every direction.
    his is the only work i know that never bores me, that always without fail merits and rewards repeated study."

    "Paolo, chapeaux bas. I don't know you as much as i wish to but am 100% sure would love your life and would get addicted to it. just as i got addicted to your photos. they always say something like: 'it's not about the quantity but the quality!'. each photo of yours seems like a trip. and i'm always willing to participate in it. please keep going. Laura and you make flickr a really nice place to be (and see). xx"

    "Paolo! gosh, i don't need to say a word, your photostream is full of treasures! i can jump from one photo into another and every single one is a pleasure to look at, producing an effect! provoking a thought, a feeling, sensation...

    effective pieces of work! the land of tsunaminotes is full of moodish places, breathtaking skies! wonderful clouds! CLOUDS! he's a photographer and a painter, i would not hesitate to let him paint my world; amazing colours even when talking about black&white!

    and Paolo! you're such a SMOKER! :P but i adore your smoking portraits ; )

    and 'nuvola va via', the picture of the white dog! among all your wonderful pictures this one haunts me! Questa foto è proprio spettacolare, complimenti per lo scatto!

    Paolo, 'Il miglior fabbro'!"

    "If Kafka had roamed Northern Italy with a digital camera, I think the resulting pictures would look a lot like Tsunami Notes'. He brings a different view to his pictures. Thoughtful, somber, usually surprising, they capture a very unique mood. There's always something thought-provoking in Tsunami Notes' photostream."
