I was born in Gallarate, Italy in 1988 and raised there.
I have been working as an Advertising Graphic Designer and Photographer for 8 years now.
My introduction to photography dates back to my adolescence but the strong interest and passion for 35mm films and analogic photography were born and raised at a later time.
I never attended University or photography classes. I grew up as a pure self-educated photographer thanks to my dedication, my mistakes and all the thrown-away films.
My preference goes to the analogic photography because I definitely love the total absence of photo editing: the result is ‘dirtier’ but much more ‘pure and true’.
Not all my photography projects have a specific purpose. Sometimes I like to let the viewer free to have his own personal interpretation without binding his ideas. On the contrary in some occasion, as for the ‘Unknowns’ collection, I focus on a specific concept trying to stimulate the viewer to reflect upon.
All images included in the ‘Unknown’ project are exclusively portraits of people I came across with while wandering around: I don’t know their faces either, in this way I can avoid the possible aesthetic judgment that they can create in a picture and so promoting the uniqueness of an unknown person.
