I was born in Rome, 1980. I studied art, then I decided to be more specific in photography, so I attended the triennal Arte e Mestieri Photography School of Rome, under the guide of Francesca Molé. I've always been drawn to stories about human health and illness, medicine and sufferance. Both sides are part of human's daily experience and no matter how touched or conscious we are about that, we slip into it from side to side. Lot of my visual interest concerns my family. As a photographer the very first thing you ever document is your family. This is why, I guess, I prefer tension to beauty. I prefer the "effet noir" to the good picture. I want to see in the dark and through it. We all know what light is and we are commonly tempted by light, this is why we easily get scared about darkness, in its metaphorical extension of the "unknow experience". Truth in photography is a mystery hanging between me and photography itself. There are so many combinations in taking a picture, reading a picture, and finally in the use of a picture, that my will to tell a story through the lenses is just an opportunity to pick up one thing in a million to consider. Photography is the place of untrue statementes, but it's made of million true things. I live and work between Italy and Germany.
