THE DRIVER

Summer. Hot weather. I really want to go to the sea. But there’s no chance, I have no money and I need to work. I receive a call from a friend: “do you want to work for an HBO series as a driver?” Six months and almost 35.000 km with a van, everyday roads, same itineraries, from hotels to set, from set to airport, back and forth into the Northern Italy suburbs in the summer. After a week I decide to take my camera with me not to go mad. De necessitate virtutem. I say to myself six months in the car can be a good project: The Driver. Looking from the car feels like being into a screen. Also, I needed to be fast: see it and shoot it, there’s no time to stop and try again. Lost the moment, lost the pic. 
It was summer, it was hot, good money and good experience, but not holidays… after all, it was great.
