My name is Luigi Stranieri, I was born in Naples on December 10th 1972 and I live in Japan. I've been living in Nagoya with my family for the past twenty years. The distance from my culture of origin has allowed me to find a privileged point of view from which to observe the humanity that surrounds me: every gesture, ritual or custom assume for me a thickness that "who is inside" can not or does not manage to see. I think a lot, and all I see I try to bring it to light is a kind of living diary. My photos tell stories of everyday life around me. Usually I take inspiration from the local newspaper news page. I think the world, the world of wars and the global market is far from common people's problems. I investigate the relationship between space and the individual, the individual and collective stories that are intertwined in the cities.
