What interested you about becoming a photographer?
– Risking to sound rhetorical, I am interested in photography because of photography. I cannot think of a fairer reason.

Where do you find inspiration to make your photographs?
– Much of my work reflects a strong connection with dance, as long as I have studied ballet from the age of 7 and have continued to do so throughout my life. So, yes, dance and dancers are constantly a great source of inspiration to me.

What do you most like to photograph?
– Human beings. Naked bodies. Dancers.

Who are your favorite photographers?
– I think that studying other people's work is the best way to nourish both the mind and one's creative skills. Among the many, I can point out some easy names like Irina Ionescu, Mapplethorpe, Man Ray, Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino and so on...
