Think about the photo before and after, never during. The secret is to take your time. You mustn't go too fast. The subject must forget about you. Then, however, you must be very quick.

I was born in a family fond of art and images. My father was Director of Photography in Movie Industry. He was able to ignite a well technical competence with the art vibration that was breathing in his background, having a dedicated and celebrated painter as a mother and a photographer as a grand father. His father and a long que of ancestors were painters as well.

I was growing struggling to find my space between expectation and judgment on my artistic expression and for long refused to belong to my family path. Nevertheless there is a pattern!

For long time I kept the photo process as a poetic way to tame my fear of losing memory of the most beautiful moments of my life journey.    Rather than composing a static perfection I love to portrait a fluid sequence, the inner movement, following the dynamic quality of a process.

Some times the photos are the first approach before filming a reality. In other cases i just frame the beauty I can see, transforming an object into an alive and symbolic character.     I love to portrait rituals, where a long performed series of actions still leave some space for human vulnerability, the breath of casualty, the fears, the Individual who is performing as Universal.
