Biography

I am an entrepreneur, a family man and a passionate photographer.

I was born in 1964 in Pisa, Tuscany. I discovered photography during the summer break after graduating for High School, and it was a dazzling discovery. Over the years I have developed a close and profound rapport with it, ever if it has been a love hate relationship, just like all lave stories. Through photography I have improved my understanding of human nature.

My interest is in common every day life which allows me to explain the wonders of life, that I encounter day by day in my natural surroundings: the road.

What’s in my bag

“According to me, photographic reportage needs an eye, a finger, two legs”, supported Henri Cartier-Bresson.

A perspective that I feel to be mine because it is light but intense.

An intense perspective that I feel to be mine but that also needs the same lightness in the equipment of my everyday life. It includes the Leica M Monochrom with 35 mm Summicron f/2, my inseparable Moleskine on which I jot down ideas and projects, 2 batteries and an abundant amount of memory cards. As I go out with the idea of taking a portrait, the other optical reference is needed: the APO-Summicron 90 f/2 ASPH.

The travelling bag is less light since it has room for the second set of tools: a Leica M Typ 240 with 35 mm Summilux f/1,4 ASPH and the Mac for editing.
