ABOUT ME

Do not call me artist, do not call me photographer: I just produce images in which the shape is the content.

My stylistic research aims at creating clean, minimalist and methodical pictures to convey my vision of the world, made of tidy frames, combinations of lines, well-ordered arrangements of details.

My current style is the result of a long journey begun in 2006: I started shooting human beings in the urban habitat to create balanced and proportional photos; afterwards I focused on the context and on the setting in search of aesthetic balance; over time I have given more and more importance to the composition and the cleanliness, generating harmonious and graphic images.

Today, through my pictures, the aesthetic is the only message i want to communicate.
