I have spent the last ten years trying to photograph new things. "New" to me means "not seen", or that thing, which when it appears on your camera, you recognize as originality. It is not something that happens every day, rather a rare satisfaction that, at least personally, reminds me why I continue to take pictures. For this reason I've decided to call this picture "Vattelapesca", because it is an Italian word that could only be translated to "who knows". Who knows how photographers arrive to see and take some pictures, but when it happens, it's just amazing.
The wait is over and we can finally share the first new images of this year's Red Bull Illume Image Quest! Every week, we announce the semi-finalists of a different category, so stay tuned for more mind-blowing images.
