The Story Behind The image
I was on holiday on the Amalfi Coast at the time at a beach I adored called Laurito. It was like being in a 1950’s movie, you arrived with an old wooden boat then teetered down a walkway to the beach that was lined with striped beach beds.
I had just bought an underwater camera and I was a kid with a new toy. I saw these kids jumping off the rocks and asked them if I could photograph them. The challenge was to tred water, trying to keep my head above water waiting for the perfect moment.
When this little boy formed the perfect cross I still ask myself how I managed to stay afloat and click the shutter at the same time without drowning.
This image brings me joy every time I look at, it reminds me of the joy of childhood, freedom, friendship, my love for Italy and all the reasons I started in photography in the first place.
