I'm an italian professional mountain photographer. I shoot B/W usually, mostly analog, medium format. Throughout my childhood, formative years and into adulthood I’ve always been surrounded by rocks, woods, rivers, waterfalls and snow-capped peaks. I was lucky enough to grow up in the very heart of the Dolomites, in Cortina d'Ampezzo. My father was a climber, a writer and a filmmaker; from my very earliest years I closely followed him along seemingly endless mountains paths and tracks. I’ve lived and continue to live them today. I’ve written about them and told their stories through words and photographs. I’ve been shaped by mountains. My destiny as a photographer couldn’t have gone any other way.
