LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
I was born in 1978 in the province of Bergamo (Italy) where I also keep living since then.
I first started to use cameras in 2009 during a trip to Croatia and for a longer time I saw photography just as a mean to tell about the journeys or about family gatherings.
This until 2012, when I discovered the INSTANT PHOTOGRAPHY thanks to Polaroid the Originals and to the Italian network THE POLAROIDERS.
From that year on, yet sporadically, I started to take advantage from this photographic medium to develop my own personal vision in form of single, non repeatable, shoots.
In 2016 i participated to a workshop organised by one of the Italian masters of photography: Franco Fontana. That workshop disclosed and enhanced my perception about photography seeing it as a new means of expression that I needed to know and dominate.
I started searching for my own photographic vision.
By exploring the medium and becoming aware of it,I discovered and started to develop my own personal style, never stable but constantly changing, picking up ideas from art movements I love, and using the square format, which by the form and precision I feel very representative of myself, almost as seeing my self “IN-SQUARE”.
Nowadays I like to take pictures in a calm way,not everyday.But when I travel by car, or simply walk along the streets I observe, look, see!
I see the light and feel the colours and pick up what I feel mine. Maybe it’s a strange way to make photography but this is the way I feel it.
WHO I AM
i am a man free to think, to do, to worry or not if the photos are good. I have to find my way...
