Seeing this interesting photo, one can't help but wonder, what was happening at the time during the 1965 Cannes Film Festival, and what was this intrepid photographer trying to shoot with such an unusual stance?
So many interesting things seem to be happening all at one in this intriguing and fascinating photograph, don’t you agree? Aside from the obvious — the photographer in suit and sandals adapting a rather unusual stance and aided by his camera bag for support to get the shot that he wants — it’s worth noting the beautiful motion picture cameras held by the other photographers. Maybe you’re also wondering, what could the brave photographer be shooting for it to warrant such a stance? All I found out about this photo is that they are press corps photographers out filming and taking photos during the 1965 Cannes Film Festival.

Valerio Spada went beyond his comfort zone and stepped right into the battlefield with his camera. He went to Naples, Italy, an area populated by the Camorra Mafia but also home to Annalisa Durante who, at the age of 14, was killed by a bullet aimed at a Camorra boss. What happened to her could've happened to any of the girls portrayed in the book Gommorah Girl. This work is about Annalisa. It's about all of the girls that, just like her, seem doomed to an unfair destiny - which, hopefully, may still change.
Though I am not a professional, photography is in my genes. My father was a photographer and technician in the Air Force and accumulated a number of cameras during his life. This is a story about one of those cameras, a Yashica 635 TLR. I brought the camera—after being in storage for about 55 years—back to life with a roll of Portra 160 during the golden hour at Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Washington.
