What would it be like when you bring street photography to the beach? That's what Luca Regoli has been doing. In this series, Luca Regoli wants to match his love for the sea with his passion for street photography, and he calls it beach-street photography.
What would it be like when you bring street photography to the beach? That's what Luca Regoli has been doing. The Italian photographer lives just a few kilometers from the sea and realized the beach is some kind of street. But different. Unlike an urban environment where the game of lights is artificially too dynamic, a coastal scene is more natural with a lot of light unimpeded by buildings. So the photographer's shots are less studied and more spontaneous. He just lets the moments slip through his lens.
Luca Regoli was born in 1972 and he lives in Mordano, a small village in Italy. His passion for photography started three years ago when he decides to stop smoking. He thought of replacing the urge to smoke with the snap of the camera. He bought his first reflex and started as a self-taught photographer. He is very picky about the composition, much less about the perfection of the technique. He doesn’t have a top camera and he doesn't use much post-production. He loves to take photos with a fixed lens 35mm or 50mm.
