"Italian photographer Piero Percoco is the author of the popular Instagram feed @therainbow_is_underestimated, where since 2013 he's been sharing mobile pictures of daily life in Sannicandro di Bari, the small town in Southern Italy he comes from. ... "I was given my first iPhone as a gift in 2013, and started photographing the things and people in my daily life" Piero recalls. "I quickly realized that shooting on a phone was truly instantaneous and discreet, that it makes it easier to capture the essence of a person. Photographing people with a traditional camera gets them to become less spontaneous and authentic. In the meanwhile I had created my Instagram account, and I began to share my photos on it. Everything that happened since has been incredibly unexpected." "--Interview on fotoroom.co, accessed 27/9/2018.
