    It's 1985 and 29-year-old family man Anthony Papa is the owner of a failing radio repair business. Offered $500 to deliver an envelope for an acquaintance, the desperate Papa agrees, unaware of the cocaine inside or the stingoperation that awaits. Though it's his first criminal offense, New York drugs laws dictate a mandatory 15-year-to-life prison term. When his self-portrait is exhibited at the Whitney Museum in 1994, a burst of public sympathy catches the attention of the governor leading to Papa's eventual release just three years short of the full sentence. A story featuring a 16-page signature with color photos and reproductions, this is a social critique of American drug laws.

    ABOUT THE BOOK25 Lessons Lessons I've Learned about (Photography) Life! has been the #1 best selling photo essay on amazon.com for both 2010 and 2011. It is also a best seller in the Arts & Literature Biographies & Memoirs, Self-Help, Inspirational and Spiritual categories. In his best-selling book, Lorenzo describes how the deceptively simple rules of photography can also be applied to the art of living. Inspirational and poetic, this book will not only spark readers' creative energies, but also reawaken your passion for life.In 2005, as a husband, father, and corporate employee - Lorenzo's life revolved around home, work, and his daily commute from the suburbs to the city.Then, one day, he found himself staying at the Little Church in midtown Manhattan in the wake of a marital separation. Living in virtual isolation for three months, he had a rare chance to re-examine his life.Quite unexpectedly, he found himself wandering around the city to take photographs, a passion he had let slide in the years of pursuing a career and starting a family. During his nightly sojourns through the streets of New York City, he was reminded of some important life lessons-lessons too easily forgotten in the blur of everyday existence.WHAT READERS ARE SAYING"The book has been the best investment in my life." PD, New York"I don't think I've ever read as moving a piece on the craft of photography in my life. Most pieces on photography are more tech manual in approach, this one really touches my soul...it's going to really impact my life." Phyllis Johnson, photojournalist and author of Being Frank with Anne"We received our copies of 25 Lessons today and began reading it as a class - it is truly amazing." Paul Scott, Head of Photography, St. Boniface's Catholic College in Plymouth, UK"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 online 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 has to offer..." Brenda George, Adelaide, Australia"As an oncologist, my primary job is not only to add days to people's lives, it is to add life to people's days. Lorenzo's book has provided me with a great instrument through which I can further become the counselor, healer and confidant my patient's demand. It has reignited in me the passion, warmth and compassion which are sequential for me on a daily basis to be the best physician and person I can be and I've encouraged all of my patients and families to share in his masterpiece as laughter, love, and imagination are the ultimate weapons against grief and despair. Secondary to Lorenzo's great influence in my life, I continue to use his writings and photography as a means to inspire my patient's to express their deep inner emotions as a way to reflect on their understanding of disease and in developing goals of therapy. I recommend his book to all." Mike Rotkowitz, MD, New York City

    DESCRIZIONE DEL PRODOTTONel suo best-seller Lorenzo descrive come le apparentemente semplici regole della fotografia possono essere applicate anche all'arte di vivere. Ispirato e poetico, questo libro non solo stimolerà energie creative nei lettori, ma risveglierà anche la tua passione per la vita.Nel 2005, come marito, padre e dipendente aziendale, la vita di Lorenzo ruotava intorno alla casa, al lavoro e ai suoi spostamenti quotidiani dalla periferia alla città.Poi, un giorno, si è trovato a soggiornare presso la Piccola Chiesa nel centro di Manhattan, sulla scia di una separazione coniugale. Vivendo in isolamento virtuale per tre mesi, ha avuto la rara occasione di riesaminare la propria vita.In modo piuttosto imprevisto si è trovato a vagare per la città a scattare fotografie, una passione che aveva trascurato negli anni in cui aveva inseguito una carriera e aveva messo su famiglia. Durante i suoi soggiorni notturni per le strade di New York City gli sono state ricordate alcune importanti lezioni di vita, lezioni troppo facilmente dimenticate nella confusione della vita quotidiana.Per ulteriori informazioni: 25Lessons.com25 lezioni è stato un best seller al N° 1 dei saggi fotografici in vendita su amazon.com per il 2010 e il 2011. Versioni in edizione economica e con copertina rigida, con immagini, sono pure disponibili su Amazon e su blurb.com.LODE PER 25 LEZIONI“In molte delle mie conversazioni sui grandi fotografi, mi capita spesso di citare il lavoro di Lorenzo. Le sue fotografie in sequenza... non sono niente di meno che un poema visivo urbano. Mi ha fatto grande piacere vedere la rapida crescita di Lorenzo come fotografo di punta del nostro tempo”. Jim Van Meter, Rochester, NY, USA“Lorenzo è un maestro. La sua opera è certamente una delle migliori di quelle visibili online e può benissimo essere considerata una delle migliori oggi presenti in campo fotografico. Il suo lavoro di strada segue la tradizione di Paul Strand, Cartier-Bresson, Garry Winogrand e Larry Friedlander. Le 25 Lezioni di Lorenzo sono... altrettanto fertili quanto la tesi di Ansel sul sistema zonale. Le ho trovate rigeneranti, percettive ed estremamente utili. Sono stato toccato dalla sua storia, dai suoi scritti e dalla sua opera. Non riesco a immaginare nessuno che non voglia essere così”. Barry Shapiro, Los Angeles, CA, USA“Lorenzo... ha una passione per la vita, per la fotografia e per la scrittura. Lui è un genio linguistico, un narratore attraverso parole e immagini. È in grado di catturare, con la sua macchina fotografica, il mondo come lo vede, con i suoi sentimenti, l’amore, la bellezza e tutto ciò che ha da offrire...”Brenda George, Adelaide, Australia
