This week we are taking to the streets. Not to protest, but to document. 'Street' photography might be thought of as an easy task. Just walk around and click away. But, as anyone who has ever taken to the streets to photograph the life therin will tell you, it's not that easy. In fact it is probably one of the most difficult genres of photography out there. It takes patience, observation, skill, as well as a good deal of luck. 
Here, and elswhere in his portfolio, the photographer Lorenzo Grifantini has shown he has all of those qualities.
The resulting picture shown today could be viewed and dismissed as a simple snapshot. But if you care to look deeper, it's much more than that. It is of human life in the raw. All apparently on holiday, yet busilly introverted to the scene around them. All that is, apart from the observant photographer who captured the scene. The graffity covered wall that runs through the image stands perhaps as a metaphore for the divide, its graffitied messages studiously ignored. There are so many stories to be read within this disjointed picture of life, that is its own composition.
