Data and contact details

The vision of bodies in action, of shots of the stage space, of points in focus and background points, has found space not only in theatrical direction, but also in photography.

I am fascinated by the movement that creates blurred, elongated, diaphanous, indefinite, poetic human figures. Like the actor's body, the camera is the precious tool, the link between my imagination and the creation of an artistic form that is exposed to the world.

Nothing is too defined, but everything is definable. My desire is to create a relationship between the work and its witness. Don't explain, don't illustrate.

Create wide spaces for imagination, for interpretation.

Make every user feel alive, fully satisfied to participate in the life of the image.

My need is to transform the work of art into another work.

Go into detail and be amazed at the new shapes that appear to the eye.

My action is performative, the machine is manual, the parameters are continually to be modified; a creative flow overwhelms me, I am in motion, I change and change my point of view again. My pleasure is not in refining a technique but in exploring a poetic. I stage what I cannot photograph and I photograph what I cannot stage.
