What interested you about becoming a photographer?
– Photography came into my life as a result of my experience in the world of interior architecture and antiques. The knowledge of the history of art, the love for painting and the passion for photography has turned me after my time at the University into a precious craftsman of the image.

Where do you find inspiration to make your photographs?
– Inspiration is a long process of work, study and dedication to the observation of the world and all the artistic disciplines that surround us. Cinema, literature, everyday life and baroque painting, especially chiaroscuro, are sources of inspiration.

What do you most like to photograph?
– I don't have a specific subject. I photograph everything that attracts my interest and I can capture its beauty. My goal is to find the light in a world of shadows to immortalize the magic that surrounds the scene. I am not attached to the trends of the moment.

Who are your favorite photographers?
– Leading photographers in Pictoralism: Alvin Langdon Coburn, Heinrich Kühn, Léonard Misonne, James Craig Annan, George Davison, Lionel Clark, Hugo Henneberg, Fred Holland Day, Gertrude Käsebier,, Clarence Hudson White. As well as Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Edward Weston.
