About Me

Landscapes have a landscape within us. Therefore, if I imagine them, I create them; if I create them, they exist: if they exist, I can see them.

On these words by Fernando Pessoa is based my way of interpreting contemporary art. For some years, in fact, I have dedicated myself to revisiting my photographs transforming them into images that can express the sensation experienced during the shooting or, sometimes, during post-production.

Although the research led me to explore various areas of photography such as landscapes or architecture, nature in the general or photographic story of a metropolis, the thought of Pessoa always remains the inspiring principle.
