The Man and his Mirror by Kevin Casha
The mystery and magic of Antoine Giacomoni’s “Mirror Portraits”
It was fate which enabled me to meet Antoine Giacomoni. I had at one time been photographically involved in Corsica, visiting that magical place twice with a dear friend, colleague and brilliant Corsican photographer, Marcel Fortini. Me and Marcel are both similarly passionate about photography and “clicked” immediately when we hadfirst met each other through the Alliance Francaise, in Malta.
Dear Photography Lovers,
I welcome those who are seeing my Blog for the first time. It is my latest endeavour to try and stimulate discussion and networking on the wonderful and intriguing world of photography.
I encourage all to comment or add remarks to the blog, view also my gallery images and give their remarks, but most of all, I want you to participate in the various debates I intend to publish in this space – naturally, all pertaining to our medium – Photography.
thanks for subscribing,
During a recent lull in my usual busy, somewhat stormy lifestyle, I was experiencing, not for the first time and definitely not for the last, a feeling of dissatisfaction about my photography. Trying to find inspiration and perhaps some answers to my “artist’s block,” I picked up a book by Reza Deghati, entitled “War and Peace,” (www.nationalgeographic.com/books).
This book had been given to me a few months ago by one of my ex-students as well as a dear friend, Charles Mifsud. I had not yet had the time to savor it fully.
