The art of  Pavesi, Motta and Alemagna autogrill’s  architecture | Travel Bites &... News | Scoop.it
With franchises in 40 countries and counting, Autogrill was once a jewel of the Italian motorway and a representation of the new money emerging during the post-war years in Italy.

Today, it is associated with holiday commuters, on-the-move refreshments and 5-minute toilet breaks... Everything but the food!

Jeunes photojournalistes, pourquoi dépensez-vous vos économies pour partir en guerre ?

Jeunes photojournalistes, pourquoi dépensez-vous vos économies pour partir en guerre ? | Travel Bites &... News | Scoop.it
Ils ont une trentaine d’années, peu d’expérience, pas de magazines derrière eux, et pourtant, ils décident de partir photographier des conflits, en supportant tous les coûts et sans aucune garantie de vendre leurs images.

Mario Pires's curator insight, September 1, 2014 11:21 AM

"Je n’ai pas réellement choisi d’autoproduire mes sujets. Je suis arrivé dans le milieu il y a deux ans maintenant. Je ne disposais pas encore d’assez de contacts mais je voulais témoigner et produire. Je suis donc forcément passé par l’autoproduction en attendant d’avoir peut être la chance d’obtenir des commandes. Peut être qu’un jour j’attirerais l’attention de quelqu’un."

Vittorio Daniele's curator insight, September 2, 2014 1:27 PM

Hanno 30 anni, poca esperienza, nessuna testata giornalistica dietro di loro,  nessun incarico ma decidono di partire per fotografare in guerra, sobbarcandosi tutti i costi e non hanno nessuna garanzia di vendere le loro immagini. Questi fotogiornalisti, designati come la nuova generazione, sono costretti ad autoprodursi per iniziare a mostrare il loro lavoro e farsi conoscere.

Le spese da sostenere per almeno tre settimane a Gaza o in Siria sono molto alte. Per iniziare il biglietto aereo di andata e ritorno, vitto e alloggio. Ma una volta arrivati sul campo, ci sono altri tipi di spese fisse: l'interprete, una guida indispensabile per la logistica e per i collegamenti sul posto, auto a noleggio, assicurazione, giubbotti antiproiettile, casco, etc etc. Tutto questo  facilmente supera i 3000 €. Questo investimento è enorme per chiunque, e specialmente per i fotogiornalisti non ancora affermati e che non hanno nessuna certezza di riuscire a "piazzare" il loro lavoro. Con la grande crisi della carta stampata sono ormai sempre di più i fotografi free-lance sui campi di battaglia.La crisi  non ha colpito  solo  i giovani, ormai anche noi, quasi cinquantenni,  pur non andando in guerra, siamo costretti ad autoprodurci senza nessuna garanzia di riuscire a "piazzare" i nostri lavori.
