Giulio D'Ercole - Canvas Africa Productions
Photojournalist and Documentary Director Producer
This website wants to serve mainly three main purposes:
1) To share with the world my work, my aesthetics, my own, personal way of looking at people, nature, issues, events, because, as Henry Cartier Bresson said ,"To photograph is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart." Even more what I hope is to share with others my deepest estethics and sensibility, the way I empathize with what is around me, and inevitably influences me, has an impact on me, being it a landscape, an animal, a monument, a funny thing happening in the street, a social event, or the face of a child, of a woman or of a man.
Henry Cartier Bresson's words "photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event" resound in me because they make me understand how, when I shoot a photo, I am not just capturing a moment in life, but I am trying to discover the deepest meaning of that moment, of the person living that moment, and of how I relate to it. To me photographing is not only a way to see, explore and understand the world around me, but also to see, explore and understand my inner life, feelings and soul. My lens, as technically detached as it can be for professional reasons, is also an empathetic communication tool aiming to talk with the three actors that are always part of genuine story telling: the author, the actors and the viewers.
2) The website is my business card to other professionals in the photography world. The various photos shown here prove my skills and ability in capturing, in a compelling and captivating manner, the soul and the reality of a vast number of themes. My skills to use various camera angles and lenses to enter the intimate core of people, events, and situations, has been already appreciated by many viewers and clients (UN Agencies, NGOs, Private Sector) who, at my very competitive fees, could benefit from the production of extremely rich (in terms of number of photos delivered), high quality photo shoots.
Therefore the website is my visible presence in the market offering my professional photography services to those individuals and organizations in need of striking images for communication and awareness campaigns, brochures, posters, magazines, newspapers, websites and any other print, digital, multimedia, indoor and outdoor communication.
3) The website is also my private marketing tool for those willing to buy my photography work, delivered in high quality limited signed copies produced only with the best and most professional printers in Italy. Price list, photos available for selling and mode of payments and delivery will soon be shared once the shopping cart app will be applied to the website menu.
For the time being, before that happens, those interested in the acquisition of my photos can write to me at .
