Percoco has never studied photography – “I was never able to afford it,” he says – but he sometimes bought photo books and, inspired by photographers such as Stephen Shore and William Eggleston, started taking shots with his phone seven years ago.”All of my pictures are casual, so there is no setting up at all. I still live at home with my family, quite a unique family too, so often some peculiar situations arise between the inanimate objects – like the shopping bags, half eaten watermelons, dentures in glasses, and mops. All the pictures are part of my day-to-day life. I would compare myself to a barracuda, attacking the instant something shiny comes along.”
