The first week of our Daily Feature competition is over, and the Curious Camera Club are proud to announce the first ever winner, @riccardo_vee !
We absolutely loved this photograph, and it was our pleasure to showcase it on our Instagram. It seems like everybody agreed – this photograph accumulated a whopping 794 likes during its qualifying period.
I started playing around with cameras at the age of 13 and I believe I took my first shots not long after that, using my parents’ ‘110 Instamatic’, a film P&S manufactured by Kodak in the early 1980s.
After moving to Australia from my native country Italy in 2014, I started walking around with a Polaroid 600. Then, I bought my first 35mm film camera, a Canon TL QL, to shoot mainly around the streets of Melbourne.
More recently, a colleague of mine lent me her Canon EOS 30D. My passion for street photography and urban scenes has since then become deeper and deeper. To the point that I can’t wait for the weekend or to have a bit of free time to escape reality and dive deep into that world, where my creative mind and moody soul zone fully in for a couple of hours.
Thank you to The Curious Camera Club for choosing one of my photos for the competition.@riccardo_vee
