I’m an Italian photographer (born 1984). I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Macerata, where I live and work. In addition to my professional activity I engage in the creation of personal long-term photographic projects.

At the centre of my work are the primary elements, the sense of nature and of energy, time, transformation and the relationship between subject and reality.

I don’t see the images in this website as real photographs. In my opinion a photograph is first of all a tangible entity: “something hung on a wall”, that you can have physical contact with.
