“ I strongly believe that photography and images are strictly connected with our memory and our memory is one of the main sources of emotions, those create what we are as human being.”
Photography has intrinsic two contradictory peculiarities, to be objective but with a unique point of view.
“ I want to tell stories and take pictures of any kind, no matter what the topic or the subject is, but I want my photography to be a reflect of my obsessions and who I am in that moment of my life. It is a very personal way to communicate that can be useful as well to reach an higher audience with important matters of our history”
In 2014, he discovered CESURA, the Italian collective and independent agency born from the will and the perseverance of 5 people who strongly believed in photography and in what their master, the Magnum photographer Alex Majoli handed down to them.
“Photography is an understanding process oriented to your person, it’s a communication tool, it’s a very truthful mirror that reflect what you feel without masks and lies. Photography it’s a serious thing.”
