WHO I AM
I graduated in Humanities, majoring in Visual Arts,
then I began my career in motion pictures (movies and commercials),
which eventually led me back to photography, and I absolutely love it.
Read more about me and my approach to photography in the brief introduction to each of the galleries.
WHAT I SHOOT
I vary from personal investigations inspired by abstract realism
or a subtle conceptual approach,
to more conventional topics revisited according to my individual perception and taste.
I shoot what I consider to be visually interesting,
no matter if it is natural, artificial or both – like humanity itself.
I either create images that are floating around my mind or
I shoot what my innate aptitude for observation inspires me to.
This means I end up with a large variety of pictures.
My photos are as varied as the themes that fascinate me,
among so many aspects of the multi-faceted reality we’re surrounded by.
When shooting, I enjoy the freedom of being curious, of exploring, of uncovering reality
while looking for beauty, emotions and anything that lights up my imagination and mind.
Every subject suggests a different approach and
requires different solutions, both when shooting and during post-production.
I don’t consider all this as a challenge, but rather as an opportunity.
My digital images aren’t blurred or out-of-focus, nor are they manipulated after printing.
They’re simply photographs, technically correct as I want them to be, so that I can post-produce them my way.
My prints are rather large.
They start from 40″/1 m on their shorter side, and can be wider, depending on the environment.
My photos are a celebration of how rich and varied life can be.
MY FAVOURITE QUOTATIONS
“You just do what you love, and then a style happens later on.”
” Photography is not a sport. It has no rules.”
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
” My photographs don’t go below the surface. They don’t go below anything. They’re readings of the surface. I have great faith in surfaces. A good one is full of clues.”
” I am sure the next step will be the electronic image, … I trust that the creative eye will continue to function, whatever technological innovations may develop.”
