Welcome on my website.
I'm a photographer living on Capri, Italy, and I'm a specialist in producing Fine Art prints of Capri Island.
Born in 1983, I took the Professional qualification of photographer and then a degree in Digital and communication cultures at the Faculty of Sociology. My goal was to master the knowledge of photography as communication, and I was also fascinated by Visual Sociology. My degree thesis in Etnophotography is entitled The professional photography on Capri Island and is about features and tendencies of what the professional photographers do nowadays on Capri. At this page you can read an abstract (in italian).
This theoretical research is coherent with another one, started pretty early: a photographic research that wants to deep explore my concept of photography as communication of emotions, moments, sensations, a never ending research. The day it would come to an end, it would be the day I take my last picture.
I started to shoot as a boy using my father's film camera, and I was always disappointed when, at the end, the film disappeared into the hands of a seller, who after a few days delivered little prints that now appeared to be no longer mine. Later, I learned by myself the development of black and white, setting up a small darkroom in the basement. Finally, in 2006 I started shooting in digital. And, paradoxically, I rediscovered the value of traditional darkroom techniques, which I consider essential for a proper use of digital editing tools. Today, I shoot mostly in digital, but I am a collector of vintage cameras and a scholar of ancient printing techniques that I delight to apply.
The first result of what I do is my large archive of images of Capri and not only, in color or black and white. In this section you can see a selection and order Fine Art prints, perfect for interior decor for your own house, office or as a classy gift.
I will be glad to answer to any questions or emails you want to send me.
Thank you for your interest in my work.
Here a reflection on a damp sidewalk, there the gesture of child. Only the impassive lens, stripping its object of all those ways of seeing it, those piled-up preconceptions, that spiritual dust and grime with which my eyes have covered it, is able to present it in all its virginal purity to my attention and consequently to my love.
