Italy’s Le Spezia looks like it must be a very ‘special’ place. Resembling East Berlin when the wall was still up, the city's dreary glory is captured by photographer Jocopo Bessani. He recently released a coffee table book called The Ecology of Image, which is basically a massive ‘up yours’ to contemporary photography.
None of his images are retouched, not post-produced, not glossy, artificial or manipulated. They feature his friends and random street bums in various states of consciousness, confused men playing with iPads like cats batting at moths, lots of tattoos, lots of nudity, and lots of blank walls.
After flicking through the below gallery, you can probably guess which one Jocopo is. (He’s the one that kind of looks like a giant drug addled version of Hagrid.)
He updates his blog almost daily with new photography, so you really can get a feel of how shit but awesome his life is.
