ARTIST'S STATEMENT //

Born in Rome in 1977, I am a freelance photographer based in Italy. I graduated in advertising graphics and later breathed the atmosphere of inks working in an old typography in the capital; this is how I deepened the use of the color that will then choose for the realisation of my projects. Today, through images, I love to tell stories and fragments of life thanks to very close and intimate shots that cancel the distance between subject and observer. My photographs aim to take on a documentary and at the same time artistic value. I love the feeling of primary colors, raw, honest and always poetic. This approach allows me to express the authentic dignity of the subjects, the real authors of my images.

The art of framing poetry of everyday life...this is the photography for me.
