What interested you about becoming a photographer?
– Photography means freedom of expression. In photography I'm free, I don't even have to abide by my own rules. I can represent what really interests me, in a thousand different ways. Photography is a continuous stimulus and a continuous challenge.

Where do you find inspiration to make your photographs?
– I study a lot and I look for other photographers almost every day. Each series of photographs that I see leaves me something. I always keep my style but I internalize the charm of the images of others, and therefore in my photos you can find references to some of them.

What do you most like to photograph?
– The more people is 'normal' the more it appeals me. I find the banality aesthetically sublime. I love architecture, I love objects old and decadent, in which you can read the concept of deterioration and emptiness. I am also fascinated by the symmetries and the atmosphere of the 70s.

Who are your favorite photographers?
– The photographers that I admire and from whom I have learned a lot are: Bernd and Hilla Becher, Luigi Ghirri, Laurenz Berges, Gregory Crewdson, Jim Goldberg, William Eggleston, Nadav Kander and Gabriele Basilico.
