ADVANCE PRAISE FOR STREETWISE
"In many of my conversations on great photographers, I frequently mention Lorenzo's work. His sequential photographs…are nothing less that a visual urban poem. It has been my pleasure to watch Lorenzo's rapid growth as a leading photographer of our time."
Jim Van Meter, Rochester, NY, USA
"Lorenzo is a master. His body of work is some of the very best on flickr and may very well be some of the best being done in the medium today. His street work follows in the tradition of Paul Strand, Cartier-Bresson, Garry Winogrand and Larry Friedlander. Lorenzo's 25 Lessons are…as seminal as Ansel's dissertation on the zone system. I found them to be reenergizing, perceptive and extremely useful. I have been touched by his story, his writings and by his work. I can't imagine anyone not being so."
Barry Shapiro, Los Angeles, CA, USA
"Lorenzo…has a passion for life, photography and writing. He is a linguistic genius, a storyteller through words and pictures. He captures with his camera the world as he sees it, its feelings, love, beauty and all it that it has to offer..."
