I was born in 1969 in the famous city of Pompeii and I approached the photography at the age of 12. I use photography as a means to identify and confront myself with the hidden qualities of my character, to better understand reality and the world where I live. A clearer understanding of myself and my world allows me to explore “fragments of life” as an abstract form and also to interact with people with whom, otherwise, I would not be able to interact. My goal is to create photographs that are capable of producing an effect of “estrangement” and visual and emotional fascination in the public. The choice of subjects derives from my background and cultural history and from my interest in ideas about beauty and their emotional connections. I recently started working with abandoned places trying to show abstract and evocative landscapes as a reason to embody the idea of imagined spaces. I use and blend together the languages and techniques of analogue and digital photography exclusively to satisfy my creative ideas. Therefore, on a visual stylistic level, I feel more fascinated by abstract and experimental artists. However, Luigi Ghirri, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Aaron Siskind, Bill Brandt, Larry Towell, Fred Herzog, Robert Demachy, Peter Hujar, Lucas Samaras, Edward Weston and Andre Kertesz have always been a great source of inspiration.
