We'd like to know more about you. Can you tell us more about yourself?
I'm 37 and I work as a freelance art director and teacher at IED, the European Design Insititute in Milan, the city where I was born
In 2004, together with a team of communication professionals and photographers, I founded one of the first online photo magazine about reportage and travel.
As a photographer I shot photo reportage in India, U.S.A., Asia, Africa and Europe.
I am currently working on a very special photography project with other photographers while at the same time I am participating in the establishment of a start-up that will operate in the communication business.
When did your love affair with photography begin?
Unlike many others who were born with a passion for photography, my interest was late and has been developing over the years together with the ever-growing desire to travel. If I had to determine a specific date when the "love affaire" began, I'd say it was in 1997 during my first trip to Tanzania. Africa has been like Cupid for me and photography.
How does photography influence your life?
Photography influenced and influences my everyday life because it changed and keeps on changing the perception of what surrounds me. Sometimes it's weird because it makes me thinking of the world as a huge stage built by the best set designer ever, with billions of academy awarded actors.
How does the people/scenery you capture influence you as a photographer?
That's the most important part of photography. I always try to blend in the scenery and feeling involved with what's going on trying to catch moments without being noticed. Until I don't feel myself confident with people and environment I don't shoot.
Emotions are said to be an important aspect of photography. How crucial is this element for you as a photographer?
I've always thought that photography means capturing a unique moment in time. Thinking that those moments will never be repeated the same way, makes me fix the emotion I'm feeling in the exact time I click, hoping to deliver the same kind of emotions to the people that look at my pictures. This is the reason why I take photographs.
