I was born in Rome, on April 17th 1975. My parents are both photographers, so I’ve been raised in a photo lab since a was a young kid. When my homework was done, I ran immediately in the dark room. I remember the indelible smell of acids and the light of the photographic enlarger: it was my personal cinema, I was astonished by the lives of people that were flowing right in front of me. As a teenager, I learned at first the film’s development and the printing from my parents, then I started holding the flash. At 16 years old, I began to work for the first marriages. The schematic nature of the marriage left no room for fantasy or imagination and so I decided to refine my photographic techniques.
2000 – I accomplished the second edition of the Postgraduate Course-Master and the Training Course in “Language of Photography” at the University of Rome Tor Vergata for the academic year 1999/2000 at the MIFAV (Museum of Photographic Image and Visual Arts). I was euphoric. I felt like a great artist, but as life always reserves some surprises, I put aside all my wishes and ambitions and I started to deal with something else.
2005 – Mobile phones started to have decent photographic performances so I started to shoot increasingly. No matter what the subject was, no matter for the quality, nothing existed beyond me and that phone, no outlines
2018 – With the development of smartphones the quality of the image has greatly improved, so I decided to open an Instagram account (initially supported only by a few people) to publish the photos I shoot by using the manual mode of the phone and the right technique. It allows me to communicate everything I do without necessarily being labeled or judged.
I say it clearly under my profile picture, my self-portrait: “I’m a photographer that takes photos only using smartphones. I explore all the styles, from the simplest one to the abstract up to the extreme processing”.
2019 – From January 25th to February 2nd, I took part in the first edition of the Collective Exposition called Numen Ar Prize with four photos on 40x60cm forex panels: Red Door, Red Windows, Green Window and Blue Door. That series was dedicated to the city of Mykonos, the place where they were taken.
2019 –From February 7th to February 20th, I took part in the Collective Exposition called Contemporary Vol. 3 (In Love) with a short video entitled Life is Love.
