I'm 45 years old and I'm collecting visual notes for a lifetime.
However, I understand that I have just begun.
I first approached photography as a child, attracted by the large black & white prints of my father, who gave me my first camera at the age of twelve.
I also spent my early university years refining my photographic techniques helped by my frequent visits to the historic photography club Fincantieri in Trieste.
Finally, I tried to specialize myself in documentary photography by my participation in several courses and workshops lead by exceptional teachers, including Pierpaolo Mittica, Massimo Mastrorillo and Andrea Boccalini.
I like to get feedback on my work, so some of my images are also present on some specialized sites, including PhotoVogue and 1x.com. In December 2012 I won the first prize of the prestigious 1x Photo Awards, the photo contest by 1x.com, the world’s biggest online curated photo gallery. In June 2014, I was awarded with the First Prize in category Press in the "Prix de la Photographie Paris" (Px3). I got also a third place in the category "Editorial" in 2014 "International Photography Awards" and three honorable mentions in 2014 and 2015 "International Photography Awards".
I believe that there are two ways to tell the reality with photography: inventing or discovering it. I prefer to discover.
