My first connexion with the image as a way to narrate goes way long in my past when I discovered my father’s typing machine. I began to imagine absurd stories wherewith I was filling a news paper. I understood that I need images to make my stories “veridical” so I started to make drawings in some frames that were meant to copy the photographs that usually match an article. This happened when I was in the second grade. Later, in 5th or 6th grade, I began to experiment with my parent’s video recorder and I created several stop motion animations showing accidents and interactions between toys. I stopped experimenting and after a while I looked for something to express my creativity so I leaned toward music as I felt this is the best way to express my feelings. Later on, I dropped the technical University where I was enrolled and this somehow deepened my search for something to complete me. It took me two years to rediscover my attraction toward image and this was done by accident. My family had a photo camera and that was specially designated for trips so I never thought that I can use a camera for other things than snapshots of fun moments. A good friend of mine bought himself a camera, began to photograph and suddenly I saw photography as a way of expressing rather of a way of recording. And here it started my journey.
Slowly I began to look for interesting photographers and I found Allesandra Sanguinetti’s work and in that moment I began to read more about her and to check her website periodically. One year later I was lucky to meet her in San Francisco at her workshop. Things began to change after she explained me that I need to do work that others can’t do and I also need to have my own voice so I can be recognized. This gave me a new perspective and it was the first time when I realized that being different is great. I wished to return so my San Francisco experience prolonged with me pursuing a MFA program at Academy of Art University. Things started to happen for me and I began to see more thru the work of the new artists that I am discovering.
