Oreste Pipolo, Fotografo di Matrimoni

Oreste Pipolo, marriage photographer

 
For 25 years Oreste Pipolo has been taking photographs of one and the same thing, weddings, in one and the same place, Napoli. In the largest and „oldest“ city in southern Italy, marriage rites pay their respects to tradition (the church, the banquet, the Neapolitan music). At the same time, though, nowadays they are also infiltrated by new mythologies and styles (the cars, the motorcycles, gaudy nylon clothes, disco music).
