IN CONVERSATION WITH LELE BISSOLI
Photography by Lele Bissoli
Interview by Melanie Meggs
Everything photography began in 2015 for Lele (Emanuele) Bissoli. Born in Vercelli a little city in the northern part of Italy where he still lives today, Lele was initially fascinated by night photography and starry skies until he discovered street photography. In the last seven years Lele has traveled extensively and has taken to the streets of New York City, Los Angeles, London and also Milan and Genova in his beloved Italy.
Stimulated and never bored with this genre, Lele appreciates that his street shots are, as he states, "basically 'stolen shots' capturing the moment, evoking a sensation and wanting to convey it to the viewer...it works a bit like music."
Lele shares his "Creative" series with The Pictorial List. A series of his recovery of 'wrong' or 'ineffective' shots reworked to create something poetic and the pure desire to stand out and break the rules. A reverberation!
"I came back from a journey during the post production process I would then select the 'wrong' shots and mix them until a good result was obtained."
