I am 42 and was born in Rome (Italy). Photography has been my passion since 1990. I came across photography during a trip to Miami. At that time I just enjoyed freezing any particular occasion with my camera. Since then I have travelled all around the World touching different countries such as South Africa, Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. It was during the trip to Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego that I got crazy for the art of photography. During that travel I stared at the glacier Perito Moreno and could not stop myself taking pictures. I discovered a particular attitude and feeling in capturing especially landscapes photos. After a while I discovered an unexpected passion for portraits and recently I developed interest in street photography. As Henri Cartier-Bresson said "Photography is putting one’s head, one’s eye, and one’s heart on the same axis"...I don't know the amount of head and eye I can put in a photo; but for sure...I usually don't save heart and passion...
