v<- BIO

 

June 20, 1980, I live in Positano.

I approached photography because of my partner, who was interested in visual and plastic arts.

It was simply a game, but very pleasant and congenial. I became attached to the vehicle and fell in love with the idea of being able to express, to be able to express myself, to be able to leave a message.

The key moment is the meeting with one of the Norwegian masters of photography: Morten Krogvold and his life partner Tarand. They were longtime customers of the restaurant where I worked. For two weeks Morten played the role of “Pablo Neruda” in the film with Massimo Troisi: “Il Postino”.

Two weeks in which he took me by the hand and enchanted me with his lessons on color and shape, talking about Kandisky, light and composition.
Shortly thereafter, I gave up my job at the restaurant and launched myself fully into training following seminars and workshops to devote myself to “writing with light”.

After a few years I created Arkimedia Lab with Antonio Casola (Web Designer), an agency that deals with visual communication.

In January ’09, I obtained a publication on the Italian National Geographic, then on El Pais until I won the competition organized by Nikon in 2010. I obtained the Advanced Color Correction Class diploma by Dan Margulis and then the Master in Photography of the IED of Milan curated by Silvia Lelli.
