1. If you were to select photographs to paste into your Summer Diary, called ‘Summer Panorama’, what would they be? Thinking back to when you took them, what struck you?

I would choose part of a series of photos taken in Venice. A series that I spontaneously decided to call ‘Big amount of struggle here and there’, because it is exactly the way I look and enjoy watching Venice and its tourists and inhabitants during the summer; a continuous struggle, at every corner, on every bridge, in front of every attraction.

2. If you were now in that precise condition, and you had to send a postcard, to whom would you send it? What message would you write?

I would send it to the same person to whom I sent some of these photos shortly after I took them, and as on that occasion I would not write anything, or very short one- or two-word descriptions, because everything tells itself, and she would see the same things as I do.

3. What is one object you would never part with (apart from your camera)? What emotions does it arouse in you?

I think I would never part with my sunglasses. I like the glasses, because when I wear them in a way I isolate myself in my own bubble, I see what’s going on but it’s like everything is quieter and I feel more at peace.

Eric Scaggiante was born in Venice on 15 August 2000. “I eat, I dance, I watch, I think, I fall in love – a little too much. I went to high school, then moved to Bergamo, where I worked for a bicycle company, which at the time was my main passion, the one that has given me everything or almost everything so far. With my first paycheck, I bought a camera and started shooting for pure pleasure, often sharing my photos; I had always taken photos – with my mind – but never with a camera. I have always enjoyed observing reality, fascinated by its absurdity that is reflected in every circumstance from the most common to the most extraordinary; the good and the bad. Over time, taking pictures became my point of view, my current job. In general, I see myself as a bouncing ball transported by entropy: going up, then going down, bouncing here only to come back up and end up somewhere else”.
