Originally from a small village in Sicily, I live in Rome.
I have been photographing since my youth with an Alpa 10d.
Now retired, I dedicate myself to photography full time. Today, I mainly use the LEICA M240 and the Hasselblad x1d.
Inspired by my travels, I seek the landscapes to immortalize them in my photographs. I have always tried, through my photos, to crystallize reality to reveal its very essence.
With humility, I think that photography can aspire to be art, not with artifices, but only by collecting the fruits of reality.
It is for this reason that I mainly take pictures in black and white to get as close as possible to purity and simplicity. Without forgetting some incursions in the color when it is really essential.
I present you some images taken along my path: a perpetual search, a sublimation of reality.
