Olive Trees in the Snow by Daniele Leone

This photo was taken on the 31st of December, during the snowfall of 2014, one of the most copious ever recorded in Puglia and in a seaside resort. In the days of the snowfall I had been bedridden by a strong flu, but I didn’t want to miss that beautiful sunny morning as well as New Year’s Eve.

Daniele Leone was born in Milan in 1974. He is an Apulian by adoption, but having his grandparents in Florence and an uncle in Milan, he often goes to visit them with his parents. On these long car trips, he learned about his country, the beauty of the landscapes he crossed, the culture of the local people and the art in the great museums thus starting to take the first photos handling a Minolta. However, it is his uncle, a technical designer in Milan and a great traveler, who lays the foundations for his interest in photography and architecture that immediately animated his interest.
