The Jury for the "Amilcare Ponchielli Prize" for reportage photography.



Milano, Maggio 2009

Si è riunita la giuria del "Premio Ponchielli" promosso dai photo editors del "GRIN":
Nella foto qui sopra in prima fila da sinistra: Paola Brivio (GRIN), Valeria Moreschi (FNAC), Walter Guadagnini (UniCredit&Art), Mariuccia Stiffoni Ponchielli.
Dietro, da sinistra: Laura Incardona (GRIN), Toni Thorimbert, Paolo Pietroni, Simona Ongarelli (GRIN).

Sono molto felice di aver fatto parte di questa giuria, senz'altro uno dei premi di fotografia di maggior prestigio e peso qualitativo oggi in Italia, ma naturalmente ne sono felice per l'amicizia grande che mi legava all'Amilcare.
Vorrei scrivere di più, ma onestamente non trovo il tono giusto.
Amilcare è mancato, a tutti noi che lo amavamo, nel 2001.
Qui sotto la riproduzione di un provino a contatto con dei ritratti di Amilcare scattati tanto tempo fa.




Amilcare Ponchielli portrait by Toni Thorimbert


La premiazione dell'edizione 2009 del "Premio Ponchielli" avverrà a Milano il 10 Giugno alla Fondazione Pomodoro in Via Solari.

Per i più giovani che seguono il mio blog e che non lo hanno conosciuto allego qui una biografia di Amilcare tratta dal sito del GRIN:

Gianni Amilcare Ponchielli è nato a Milano nel 1946.
Ha iniziato a lavorare nel 1965 a Buenos Aires in pubblicità, poi dal 1966 al 1968 è a Parigi presso la rivista Jardin des Modes. Nel 1968 arriva a Milano dove lavora come grafico pubblicitario alla Rusconi e quindi, fino al ‘70, alla Rinascente Upim. Dal 1971/75 collabora come free lance con varie aziende editoriali e diventa quindi grafico della rivista Cento Cose. Nel 1979 entra nel Gruppo Editoriale Corriere della Sera, prima ad Amica, dove diventa il primo photo editor in Italia, quindi a Max e infine a Sette, sempre come photo editor e titolare della rubrica “Photofinish”.
E’ scomparso a Milano nel 2001.

La fotografia, in tutta la sua carriera, ha sempre avuto un ruolo dominante. Si è sempre battuto, all’interno delle redazioni nelle quali ha lavorato, perché l’immagine fotografica avesse la dignità che le spetta e le venisse riconosciuto il suo potere informativo.

Negli anni ha costituito un’importante biblioteca dedicata alla fotografia di oltre 1200 volumi, oggi conservata presso il Museo di Fotografia Contemporanea a Villa Ghirlanda, Cinisello Balsamo (Milano).

grande Tony! Sei un ganster tra i più simpatici e bravi del momento. L'idea di un disimpegno creativo nel merito del tuo lavoro è completamente sbagliata. In realtà dai deel glamour -e finalmente!- una visione plastica e necessaria alla vita, come bere tranquillamente dello chmapagne in compagnia di una bella donna, leggere poesie di Flauber ben consocendo i Fiori del male di Baudelaire, gustarsi Tex Willer nel pieno di un convegno sulla Filosofia. Questa la tua libertà che è quella che poi ci vorrebbe un pò in questo paese, giusto per non passare in modo traumatico dalle veline a... Franceschini e viceversa. Sei una "via di mezzo" concreta e piacevole.
Ti abbraccio
Moreno Gentili

Caspita Moreno! Grazie mille, Citando Italo Calvino direi che: "pur essendomi saputo sempre, mai mi ero potuto riconoscere così"( da "Il barone rampante") Sei troppo buono con me, però lo accetto volentieri!
Un abbraccio ricambiato...
Toni

I've had my iPad in support of about 2 months now and I'm forceful you, Steve jobs certainly has his way of converting people to be a Mac/Apple fan. I own the iPad without 3G because I didn't want to entertain to exact one's pound of flesh from in behalf of a new specialty in systemization to come to an understanding a arise the micro SIM card. So I've kinda well-founded lived with my iPad purely where there's wifi connection. Which are aplenty anyway at Starbucks, Mcdonalds, and the libraries. This was to come my chum introduced me to a tickety-boo way circa this problem -- a 3G wifi router AP that supports GPRS, GSM, WCDMA, HSUPA, HSDPA, UMT and PERIPHERY!

I purchased the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-16971-Huawei+E5830+3G+WiFi+Router+AP+%28WCDMAHSUPAHSDPAUMTEDGEGPRSGSM%29.html]Huawei E5830 3G WiFi Router AP (WCDMA/HSUPA/HSDPA/UMT/EDGE/GPRS/GSM)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com, in the Networking group, underneath my familiar's recommendation, and I in he gets points or commission from my grasp, since he's a DealtoWorld.com affiliate. The router AP is tremendously portable, lightweight and convenient. So conditions I can connect to wifi anywhere with mp iPad! I no longer call to go in quest of acme and low because a wifi AP at cafes etc. Nor spend so much of my money on caffeine overdose at Starbucks and other cafes. Too, the 3G Wifi Router AP supports mignonne much all the bandwidths -- GPRS,GSM,WCDMA,HSUPA,HSDPA,UMT,EDGE. Lift a look at pictures I've uploaded of the Huawei 3G WiFi router that has made my fixation so much easier, and is promoting a healthier caffeine-free lifestyle. It proves that a geek lifestyle does not not bear to undertake manual labourer in assistance with coffee.




And to imagine I was looking at paying supplement to upgrade to the iPad that supports 3G! I'm so thrilled that that's not indispensable anymore with this 3G wifi router AP. I can just connect to the internet wherever I am with the Huawei 3G Wifi Router, as long as there is signal. This is not a technology thingumajig per se, but it has certainly made my individual this point more efficient! As well, I'm able to bail someone out my spondulix that I would mostly fritter away on Starbucks, McCafe, and other cafes with wifi! Which, through the way, makes me astonishment whether it's a ploy by Steve Jobs, to prepare launched the 3G iPad interpretation no greater than much later, so that wifi cafes can delight in lavishness of firm from iPad wifi version. But I digress.

The 3G WiFi router AP I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url] would probably also be skilled to authorize to me download and play one's part approximately with my apps on my iTouch, supposing I haven't tried it yet. Shouldn't be a refractory I should think. This $100+ may be the superb hard cash I've spent since it enables me to entertain a sort of WiFi nucleus wherever I am. If I was more entrepreneurial, I can smooth start charging other geeks at cafes without WiFi for the benefit of offering access to them. I'm steady I can question pocket privately the $100 this approach! Alternatively, maybe I can start being an affiliate of DealtoWorld.com too, since I'm starting to come by more gadgets and tools there, and have been spreading brief conversation vibrant to my children and friends. Into the bargain, Christmas is coming in less than 2 months' patch, and I recollect this Huawei 3G WiFi router would present a awesome cumshaw concerning diverse of my tech geek friends. I'm unfaltering they'll also rise how shining and bold the router looks!
