To some extent the sea is my guide through life, the sea brings me clarity of thought, its waves, as described by Jack London, are "the knights of the infinite sea army" bearing simplicity, elegance, power and freedom.
Born in 1969, my earliest professional experience dates from 1993 when I moved to Australia , where I worked in advertising photography. Back in Italy, I started doing commercial photography using a "loose and free" style.
In 2001, my first personal work "Quotidiano" won the Polaroid International Awards. Since then I decided to focalize my attention towards producing art using my greatest passion in life as my subject, "the sea".
