What does photography mean to you?

It’s the absolute possibility of continuous experimentation that evolves along with my experience.

What photographers influenced your work?

There are obviously many photographers who inspired me along my way. One of my favourite photographers, who continues to inspire me today is Francesca Woodman. What fascinates me about her work is the ongoing research on the body and it’s surroundings. In many shots surroundings blends very naturally with the body represented. Harry Callahan, another photographer worthy of citation is one of my favorites. The best part of his work are the experiments in black and white and timeless portraits of his muse and wife Eleanor.
Finally, Tim Walker, great visionary is always a great source of suggestion and above all not to forget anything that has a limit and that the photograph is not just post-production, but a lot of imagination.

What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?

I want people to be reawakened by the emotion that a photograph is, but also the work and the path behind.

Are there some clichés in photography you steer away from?

The type of photography that I see more and more often is that ultra-retouched. When I touch-up my photos I always try make it as natural as possible, but with a twist depending on the project.

An enthusiastic budding photographer approaches you, what’s the first bit of advice you throw their way?

Produce as much as possible, is the best way to improve and grow, this gives you the opportunity to meet and get to know understand the field. Never feel arrived.
