This is a picture of one of the most famous contemporary painters in Bergamo, Mr. Caglioni or 'Callioni'. He is a bit crazy and out-of-schemes and can be often found strolling around the city. In this case he was downtown and I liked it how he just mixed up among clochards and most probably many of the persons passing by didn't recognize him at all! He can't play guitar, it was a payment for one of his paintings. I even wonder what some of those upper-class people might think if they'd know he was the author of one of the art pieces they have hanging on their walls!
The photo was taken in Bergamo on the 26th of August 2006, the day of the city's patron saint St. Alexander.
The camera used was a Canon FT from 1966 with original FL Canon 50/1.4 lens. Exposure was quick, so I don't recall exactly the data; not full-aperture but almost, probably around f2.8 and 1/250".
Film used was Ilford FP4 Plus (125/22 ISO) and printed on Ilford multigrade paper (by me, at home).
No digital manipulation except scanning, scaling, restoring of contrast to match the original print and jpeg compression.
