My name is Nico Ferrara I come from a small town in south Italy and 5 years ago i moved to London where i live and work as IT consultant. My journey with photography starts back in 2011 and ever since than i can't live without my camera. I tried many different photography style, from landscape to urban photography, worked on commissioned jobs, only to discover that street photography is what really makes me feel alive. Capturing the candid side of every day life, the feeling of my heart pumping up when i'm approaching a stranger, is what makes me want go out all the time and take pictures. I believe photography has enriched my life, i learned to look and see differently, things that i never paid attention before now are precious gems. This is why photography is not just a passion but a lifestyle.

I am one of the co-founders of the international collective Superluna

I am also a member of the collective Italian Street Eyes

Mi chiamo Nico Ferrara, sono nato a Bari nel 1983 e da circa 5 anni vivo e lavoro a Londra. Il mio percorso fotografico inizia nel 2011 e da allora non posso fare a meno della fotocamera. Inzialmente ho provato diversi stili fotografici per poi scoprire che la street photography è ciò che davvero mi fa sentire vivo. Catturare il lato spontaneo della vita quotidiana, quella sensazione del cuore che batte più forte mentre mi avvicino a uno sconosciuto, sono solo alcune delle ragioni che mi spingono ad uscire e scattare foto. Credo che la fotografia abbia arricchito la mia vita, ho imparato a osservare e vedere la realtà in maniera diversa, cose a cui prima non avrei mai prestato attenzione ora sono momenti preziosi.

Sono uno dei fondatori del collettivo internazionale Superluna

Faccio anche parte del collettivo Italian Street Eyes
