«Le immagini di Diego Bardone sono strumenti terapeutici dell’umore metropolitano. Dopo aver conosciuto Bardone la città è meno grigia, le persone sono più originali, le storie più divertenti, gli appuntamenti mancati meno tristi e Milano è meravigliosa anche per innamorarsi».
(Melina Scalise)

Più di cento immagini in bianco e nero, dello street photographer Diego Bardone raccontano Milano e il suo teatro infinito di situazioni, gesti e occasioni, materializzando l’illusione che oggetti, persone, animali e la città stessa possano sempre entrare in relazione tra loro, scambiarsi uno sguardo. In queste fotografie ironiche, affettuose e spesso poetiche si scopre una città meno grigia di quanto ce la immaginiamo, che apre al sorriso e alla meraviglia, che trova sempre qualcosa di originale da mostrare. Sfogliando Street Life Milano è subito chiaro che la strada è l’habitat naturale di Diego Bardone. Nelle sue fotografie ironiche, affettuose e spesso poetiche si scopre una città meno grigia di quanto ce la immaginiamo, che apre al sorriso e alla meraviglia, che trova sempre qualcosa di originale da mostrare.

Il libro raccoglie 120 fotografie di Diego Bardone, i testi di Melina Scalise e Francesco Tadini, una conversazione di Diego Bardone con Maurizio Garofalo e gli interventi di Bruno Panieri, Stefano Pia, Roberto Pireddu, Roberto Ramirez.
La traduzione inglese è di Donatella D’Angelo. Il passo narrativo e il ritmo del volume sono affidati alle mani esperte del photo editor Maurizio Garofalo.
