ARTIST STATEMENT

In my earlier psychologist studies and now in my photography career I’m fascinated by human behavior, their social relationships and interactions with nature. Indeed my gaze is anthropological, social and historiographic that analyzes, selects, archives. So my challenge is to understand, transcribe, tell my visible horizon, talk about the existing. In doing so, i try to have an empathic and profoundly human relationship with the places and actions that embody a sort of epic image. These pictures are imposing and eloquent voids in which I draw a sense of the relationship between individual and space. And in which the spirit of the time, the form of languages, rites and cultures, the density of social processes, the structure of democracies and common life, condense and emerge, with an imposing truth.

In the recent years i have been developing projects in which I investigated space as a reality occupied and shaped by humans. Spatial perception and spatial atmosphere in both open and closed spaces have been recurring themes in my photographic works. I constantly revisit and explore such sites as seacoast, urban, architectural, and archeoligacal site.
