I was born in Umbria, Italy, in 1982.
I received a Pentax film camera as a present from my father at the age of 15. Since then I’ve always been loving taking pictures.
I started to shoot alone, then with friends who inspired me and taught me how to develop and print b/w films.
While studying Philosophy at the university of Rome, I attended a photography course at the Scuola Romana di Fotografia.
I work as a copywriter for a creative agency and I still keep shooting film.
A travel to Greece is a spiritual experience. While facing the remnants of probably the most influential Western civilization, every perception feels renovated, reinvigorated. It is like a descent to the origins where all the elements are strikingly fresh and powerful: the light, the colours, the earth, the water. The naked presence of landscapes, houses and ordinary things evokes a ritual, a density of being that the camera seeks even in the simplest subjects.
