I was born in central Italy in 1966 and I began taking photographs at the age of thirteen. After a long interruption I restarted in 2010 at first as a contributor of stock photography agencies (Getty Images and Shutterstock). Then I was in love with reportage but now I do only storytelling: I go some place, I shoot and then I write a completely personal story.
I think there is a good number of reportage photographers or photojournalists out there and photography has not lost so much on the day I stopped. It happened when I realized that, even if you strongly feel something like a big "thing" taking place, you don't improvise being a journalist and telling the facts is really another thing. So I prefer telling you how I feel about facts, for what it is worth. But I consider it far more interesting.
In photography I'm mostly inspired by the work of Giacomelli, who lived not far from my town. Technically speaking, I print and manufacture my own books and also fine art prints.
