I am a fine art photographer and visual artist. Born in Italy, I grew up surrounded by the classical beauty of Rome and the wild nature of Sardinia. Since I was a child, my curiosity for art and nature played a fundamental role in shaping my personality. My experience in photography started more than a decade ago as a passion during my travels, becoming soon part of my daily life and finally my job. During this period, I have produced a consistent portfolio of works. My art express a continuous search for anything emotional and unusual. I love to capture the world around me, playing with my imagination and creating unique and intimate images where the ordinary becomes extraordinary, in a surreal way. I like to challenge our idea of reality. I like to preserve as much as possible of the original image, minimising the postproduction editing. All my works come to life in the real world as I do not use digital manipulation to create them. No shoot is complete until it is properly printed. I consider printing a key part of my work. The choice of material, size and printing techniques is a fundamental part of my creative process. I am based in Leamington Spa, in the heart of Warwickshire.
