Where are you from? Where do you live?
I was born and grew up in a small town near Bergamo, Cerete, but now I live
How old are you?
How do you pay your bills? Are you working as a professional photographer?
At the beginning of my studies my parents supported me and where they couldn’t arrive, I was helping myself with part-time jobs.
I’ve started as Giuliano Radices’ assistant almost one year and a half ago, and sometimes I’ve collaborated with the photographer Paola Pansini too.
At the moment I don’t consider myself a professional photographer because I’m trying to develop a personal idea of being a pro photographer, not only based on the technical-practical skills but also with a work oriented to harmony.
So I’m trying to grow up, dealing with everything that comes to me, as work and as creative process.
What cameras do you use?
Most frequently I use a nikon d700, not really caring about analog or digital, they belong to different generations and worlds and both of them make unique projects.
Sometimes I use also an Olympus om-1n or a fuji instax 210.
Any photographer or artist inspiring you?
I’m very curious about everything with no distinctions, including artists and photographers, so I don’t think to have favorite ones. Everything takes over my mind and overcomes the obstacles of simple curiosity, inspiring myself.
But if I have to make a list, it might be: Andreas Gursky, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Joel Meyerowitz, Bernard Becher, Rineke Dijkstra, Erwin Olaf, William Klein, Gabriele Basilico, Ceraudo Giancarlo, Franco Fontana, Giovanni Chiaramonte, Giacomo Costa, and Bradford David Gregory Crewdson.
What/who do you enjoy to shoot the most?
I shoot what I need to complete the process I mention earlier.
Do you believe in god?
No, I don’t believe in god.
What do you drink on a night out?
Red martini with ice and orange juice.
Do you like dancing?
If dancing means not having coordination between body and legs, so, yes I’m good dancer.
What’s your favorite first name?
Are you a fashion addicted?
No, I am not a fashion addicted but I still give importance to the concept of aesthetic.

What’s the country of your dreams?
The one where when I walk a road for a hundred times I never get tired of looking up.
