Notting Hill Carnival

  • The Notting Hill Carnival is a traditional street festival that takes place on the streets of Notting Hill area in London. This is known as a celebration of the Black British Culture with strong Caribbean influence.  It attracts millions of participants every year during the August Bank Holiday.
Street photography by Alessandro Filizzola (Notting Hill, London, 2016-2017)

Far away from the mushy love story lived in a bookstore on that movie from the late nineties, during this August carnival season, the streets of Notting Hill are turned into a loudly crowd populated by exotic and eccentric characters. Dispite the name, it is not to be mistaken as the Brazilian Carnival with happens in February. Yes, you will find some shy samba school exhibitions and thousands of people following the parade.  However, the omnipresent smell of jerked chicken barbecue in the air will remind you that you are not in Rio and that this British-Caribbean festival is something else. So, undress your soul of any pre concept or prejudice that you might have, get a drink, have a patty, mingle and indulge yourself in Notting Hill Carnival!

Madrid: Um inesperado dia pela cidade

Conexão cancelada e acabou de ganhar umas horas pra passar o dia em Madrid? – Corra e vá logo conhecer o centro histórico da cidade.

Ao longe tem uma serra nevada, tal qual uma muralha emoldurando o horizonte. Assim eu vi Madrid se aproximando pela janela do avião. Não que fosse a minha primeira vez lá (ao menos de passagem pelo aeroporto somadas a algumas pernoites entre uma escala e outra), mas acho que foi a primeira vez que reparei na beleza desta paisagem. Me fez lembrar Belo Horizonte e a sua Serra do Curral. Era pra ter sido só mais uma escala, mas graças à desorganização da British Airlines e do Madrid-Barajas Airport, entre filas de informação e traslado entre terminais, acabei perdendo a minha conexão pro Panamá. Como o próximo vôo era só pro dia seguinte, o jeito foi refazer os planos pra tentar aproveitar o resto do dia e visitar o centro histórico da cidade que eu ainda não conhecia.

Madrid é uma cidade em níveis onde a luminosidade impressiona. Mesmo num dia frio de inverno, praticamente não havia nuvens na imensidão daquele céu e o sol chegava a cegar com tanto brilho. E em meio a estes altos contrastes, as cores e a arquitetura do centro antigo foram se revelando num misto da grandiosidade do império de outros tempos e o crescimento desordenado e caótico de um tempo mais recente

Cheguei ao centro de metrô graças a uma funcionária muito gente boa das informações turísticas já no hall do aeroporto (a primeira e única nesse aeroporto medonho). O hotel por uma noite eu reservei ainda da coleta de bagagem através do Bookings. O Quatro Hotel. A localização foi excelente, apesar de no anúncio dizer que o café estava incluído e, chegando lá, descobri que não. Outro detalhe não mencionado foi a estação próxima, Sevilla, estava fechada devido a uma obra gigantesca que interditava todo o entorno do hotel. Check in concluído, malas no quarto e alguns telefonemas depois; de mapa turístico numa mão e GPS na outra, saí pra conhecer o que Madrid tinha de bom pra oferecer.

O Cruzeiro da Matriz – ou “onde foi que amarrei a minha égua”

O-Cruzeiro-da-Matriz-_-alefilizzola-frame-WEB

The church crucifix that has left from the old church located at the central square of Gameleiras / MG is now being used to tie horses. The centenar traditional church was demolished to be replaced by a new building which can be seen behind the ruins.
This image is part of the “Conhecer Para Preservar” project. During two years we visited traditional communities near by the conservation natural State park of “Caminho dos Gerais” located in one of the poorest areas in Brazil, in the north of the State of Minas Gerais. Despite the economical issues they have invaluable natural resources related to the unique confluence of three distinct biomes: Cerrado, Caatinga and Mata Atlântica. The aim of this project was, with the help of the locals and The Institute of Forests of MG – IEF, to register the beauty and the richness of that area through their people, traditions and magnificent nature. The images produced were returned to that communities as and exhibition to stimulate, evoque questioning and foment their peoples self-esteem and feeling of belonging along with the need to preserve the biomes and their local culture. The final goal of the project was to become a tool to help them to develop their economy in a sustainable way through the tourism and empowerment of the communities. The images generated by this project were adopted by the government to be used on the public schools of that area. The overall experience also became the bases of the research for my MBS dissertation in 2013.
This picture shot in February of 2013 tells and resumes the changes and conflicts on going in traditional communities where ancient values are being replaced by modern references. Where things that once were sacred are now being depleted of their meanings and losing their cultural importance, by adopting the empty symbolism of a lifestyle that comes through the mass media.
