My passion and projects comes from nature, adventure stories, fantasy films that have contributed phenomenally to my project ideas and the major part of my photographs.
I am always very attentive, in all of my movements, in everything surrounding me.
I often dream about adventures, fairy tales and mythological women. I look around at the objects surrounding me, with attention, searching for a link between a nude body more than a face. Geometric lines and original compositions are always at the centre of my attention when I launch upon a new project. Then, once I've decided in my mind I search for the right model, striving to bring them to express my idea in the best way possible. In order to follow the project that I have in mind, defining it and at last finalizing it, needs to have a series of moments in which it is me, in first person, that organizes the job; I'm not talking only about the search of the set materials, but also and mostly, the building of the set. At last, what I love the most is to have a direct approach with the model/s with whom I am working: I think that the bond with them is fundamental, and the most important thing, for the realization of the image I have in mind.
