Giovanni Savino (@magneticart) — New York-based photographer and cinematographer.
In 2014 I attempted to create a body of work about the disappearing rug trade in New York City. For reasons too long to explain here I ended up aborting the project. These are some of the images I was able to get. Today, looking at them, I regret not being able to complete the task. #rugdealers#rugs#antiquerugs#newyorkrugs#newyorkrugdealers#documentary#portraiture#disappearingworld,#oraltradition
Before today I had never printed on a leaf. I did it from an 8x10 negative by leaving it sandwiched with a big leaf in a printing frame. The sun imprinted the image by some (to me unknown) chlorophyll reaction. The most remarkable thing was the vegetable smell the leaf released when I opened the printing frame. Make love - not war :) #sunprints#leafprinting#alternativephotographer
