Tell us something about yourself. How long have you been working in the world of photography? What has been your path?
Since I was a child, photography has always been an obsession for me and since I received my first camera I have never left it. Discovering simplicity through people’s eyes is what drives me to move forward.
My experiences began between Paris, Milan and Rome.
I had the chance to express myself and to represent my personal vision of things through colors, light and shadow games.
In the meantime I have also approached film photography, gaining experience on various sets and in April 2019 I signed my first project as director of photography.
How would you define your style and how did you develop it?
My technique is playing with light and shadow which I have perfected by working a lot on the idea of drawing through light.
In your opinion, what is the most important aspect to consider when making photographic portraits?
I try to concentrate a lot on what I want to convey in order to bring out the personality of the subjects I photograph, waiting to catch the right moment without having a particular technique. Definitely trying to use the lights a lot, especially working with natural light.
Are there any artists you are inspired by? Which are the photographers who have influenced your work?
I have always loved photography and art in general, I have had a lot of experience with many photographers but there is not one artist in particular that inspired me. I have always photographed every day in order to get to know myself more and more and to reach my personal vision.
Is there a shot of you to which you are more attached? Tell us about it.
I am very fond of this photo, as it represents my identity and the path I am taking, playing more and more with lights and shadows. What do I want to tell with this shot? The seduction, the ability to arouse a living attraction through a female body hidden among the shadows, as if wrapped in a veil.
