"Photography for me is a fire burning inside, that can keep me awake at night, not to make me feel fatigue when I carry tripods and lights on the top of a mountain, and to keep me in a state of perpetual" activation "mental and emotional.
Through photography I try to express the poetry that I perceive in the world around me, that "nest" in a reflection in a puddle, in a fleeting shadow, a peeling wall by the years, fearful look of a child or the dreamy a girl. Mine is an emotional approach: apparently the photographic genres that development may seem very heterogeneous between them space easily between portrait, urban photography, street photography, beauty and fashion, without overlooking the landscape. But what unites the photographs shot is always the search for an emotion, an idea, a relationship, a moment. Those times when I perceive to be successful in, when I feel I have caught something absolute, the emotion is really strong.
In my stamp stylistic features are recurring, almost obsessions: the attraction for the reflexes, the charm of the shadows, the juxtaposition of contrasting elements and the use of selective focus.
I also love to tell and I find it really exciting conceptual photography. Being able to communicate a concept through a single photograph is a formidable challenge, and when it succeeds fulfillment is total. It 'a different way to photograph than when I go out, lonely, looking for emotions to be captured. In this case I start with what I want to express. And I try to make it through photography. Thinking first to how the concept can be made in a more simple and straightforward. The design of the shot is the most beautiful and creative. "
