I grew up in one of the most important photography studios in Calabria. I spent most of my childhood years inside of that place, and despite the enormous amount of time spent there – if I close my eyes – I can still hear the sound of the machines, loud and clear. I can still remember: my uncle’s daily mechanics; the dark room; the burned negatives; and the Kodak 36mm rolls of lm.I spent the afternoons immersed in all that was once considered analog photography- but for sometime,I thought that my uncle was a painter, because it was with the brushes that I saw him give life to the colors of his photographs. My first shot was taken in his presence with a Hasselblad 903, which was one of his first cameras. I still remember the rollercoaster of emotions the moment before you press that button. Inside of me, I knew that the moment would accompany me for my entire life, and still today, every shot taken always has a bit of his eyes.
I graduated from the University of Rome with a degree in Tourism Sciences, and then moved to England where I attended the British Study Center of Oxford. It was precisely in England that my passion for photography became a job. I began working with several architectural rms in London, photographing various architectural structures in southern England. My desire to tell stories through the camera that I carried around Europe, brought me to capture real-life shots in: Spain, Morocco, and Berlin. It was in Berlin, where I lived for some time, where I recounted the underground world of the metropolis through my shots. Upon my return to Italy, I became fully devoted to being a Photographer – specializing in the wedding eld. I o er creative photographic services throughout Italy.
