Photography by Panu Hällfors
July drop-in – Italy

My summer holiday 2013 theme is traveling by instinct and saying yes to any ideas that do not seem to too much threaten my physical or mental health.

The first instinctive idea was to head to the fjords of Norway, but thanks to a friend asking for a companion in Italy to check out Venice, San Marino, and a dancing competition in Rimini, that’s where I found myself on the first week of my holiday. I just said yes!

The dancing competitions I followed were about boogie woogie and rock’n’roll. Personally I’m more into boogie woogie, but admittedly, there’s a whole lot more to photograph in rock’n’roll.

So – here what I found in Italy.
