Salvo Toscano, Open for Art

We’ve been taking down a show, The Caversham Arts Trail and putting a new one up today at 52 Station Hill as part of the Open for Art project.

Salvo Toscano

Salvo is story teller and use photography as a mean to engage the viewer in a photographic narrative. Wandering and observing happenings in the street, and generally around is fascinating and never repetitive. A picture of people passing by, going about their business, sitting on a bench or waiting for some friend tells a story. Each picture tells a story and capturing the right moment requires patience and perseverance as people move and don’t repeat their gestures.

I met Salvo through the hang-on where he approached me about his current project.
Salvo’s latest portrait project is underway and the main objective is to focus on people that dedicate themselves to activities motivated by a passion, a personal drive (could be volunteers, artists, activists, entrepreneurs etc). This work will be launched during Volunteers Week – details will be posted on Salvo’s website

Reading based Salvo is using this project to explore the people that work within the local community and delve into what possibly is an aspect of Reading that many people are not aware of, and the opportunity for the viewer to engage into a different aspect of Reading people.

Salvo is also taking part in The Whiteknights Studio Trail, which s celebrating it’s 10th birthday this year. Full information on the trail can be found here
