I have always been passionate about visual arts, especially movies.
At the very beginning, I did not consider Photography as a means of artistic expression. It was just a way to capture and bring home some good memories of the new places seen during my vacations.
My relationship with Photography radically changed when I discovered its power of communication and expression, after visiting two exhibitions - Genesi by Salgado and a retrospective of William Klein.
Feeling the need to deep dive into it, I became a self-learner and I gathered as much information as I could find on the history of Photography and on the genre which I love the most, Street Photography.
Obsessed by this search I turned to everything which was useful: photography books, internet, exhibitions, classes and workshops, during which I had the opportunity to share my vision with great Authors such as Jeff Mermelstein.
I am a respectful and delicate observer, who captures daily life focusing on details, geometry and composition.
I also often let my pictures be contaminated by humor and a sense of surreal: I see irony as important in Street Photography as it is in real life.
I shoot only in black and white, because I think that the viewer’s look should not be distracted by colors.
In fact, for me, Photography is searching for the Essence, therefore black and white expresses my personality at its best.
