As a child I saw my dad taking pictures during holidays and family trips. Sometimes I was used to take in my hands his Voigtländer, with fixed optics, but never I did allow myself to use it, at all; at the age of thirteen, dad presented me a Kodak Instamatic, and since then I always bring a camera with me; it is my notebook with which I block the memories of my existence. At high school I bought my first reflex, a Canon FT Ql, with the savings of weekly payouts and relatives gifts, then replaced with the legendary Nikon F2 and much later with the Leica faithful.
Just recently I switched myself to digital photography, more immediate and with much more detailed and engraved results, but still nostalgically, I load analogue equipment with films that then I develop personally.
I am a self-taught but I have been fortunate enough to be able to attend, for friendship, painters, sculptors and even a professional photographer, from whom I learned, looking at his work, sensitivity to light and black and white printing; maybe that's why I do not really like color, which seems to me difficult to "manage".
For my rational job - I am a certified public accountant - photography represents evasion, fantasy, my personal vision of the world.
I photograph what strikes me, the way I perceive it; I do not have a genre or a theme in which I feel more inclined; my image notebook simply and immediately represents my life, time after time.
Therefore, my images are, as I’m used to say, simply “emotional moments”.
