I started very young, about 15-16 years old, driven by the desire to imitate my father, a great enthusiast of photography. He and I spent hours in the darkroom to develop and print our shots. His enthusiasm gave me the incentive to continue to improve, before working on technique and then on the “cutting” of the photos. I think I have learned to see in a “photographic” way.
I’m not an “artist”, and my pictures are related to the moments of holidays and leisure that I can cut out of my normal work. Yes, I’ve traveled the world, and I’ve taken thousands of slides—sooner or later, I’ll decide to digitize them. My favorite subjects are landscapes and portraits. For me, it is essential to nourish the memories with photographs related to them. It is not a sort of “collecting”, but a way of living the past as an incentive for the present and the future.
