I begun to photograph as a young boy, encouraged by my father’s friend that owned a photo shop. The photographic techniques acquired in that workshop were quickly tried out in a little homemade dark room.
In the late ’70 I was progressively attracted by the science, abandoning active practice of photography. Physics becomes in a short time my job. Now I am professor at the University of Roma Tor Vergata where I teach Solid State Physics and Quantum Optics. My specific research fields are Materials Science and Nanotechnology. Photography remains however a strong interest. Since about fifteen years, I started again in photography, finding pleasure in this activity that discloses a new way to observe more deeply the reality. Now I reopen the chapter of analogue photography, more slow and reflexive.
I live in Rom and in Berlin, my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
