WHO I AM
Growing up in Italy, I always had the dream of America.
I grabbed my first compact camera, I participated in a contest…and I won! Then I said to myself, maybe I can turn the passion into a profession? After thousands of shots, tests, experimentations, observations and contacting magazines I got my first assignment from MAX, an Italian fashion magazine. The editorial was to shoot in Venice Beach for Men’s winter fashion 2012.
The models were just street artists. Selected for their raw expressions and real world attitudes. The project was wildly successful. Pivoting on that success, I wanted to explore capturing landscapes in the United States that I could only once dream of shooting growing up in Italy. My dream had become my reality.
