Dopo un periodo di silenzio torna Nicola con questo set S-T-R-E-P-I-T-O-S-O intitolato Fashion Cosplay, che testimonia il profondo processo di ricerca della propria “voce” fotografica attraverso la coraggiosa disposizione alla sperimentazione e al cambiamento. Il progetto Fashion Cosplay  è arrivato in finale al Photography Grant Prize 2018.

Ecco come viene presentato dall’autore: “Every year in Rimini, a popular tourist destination for the sea and night life, in the month of July there is a big event called Rimini Comix. During the Rimini Comix thousands of people of all age meet on the beach to be seen and photograph dressed in the costumes of their favorite cartoon or comics personage.Many of these people wear the costumes of their favorite personage and recite the movements and slogan identically to the beloved personages. Some of these people to make costumes and identify with their favorite characters take many months. In this short series of photographs I have shown only some of the most beauty, strangest, most striking and particular characters of the hundreds of personage that I have photographed.

Location: Rimini Comix, Rimini
