Dear friends from Berlin, you’re all invited to my next solo exhibition called “IO ABITO A MATRIMONIO” (“I LIVE IN WEDDING”). A series of portraits/transits of people who have relations to our district “Wedding” (whose name often gives rise to ambiguity with the English meaning “marriage”).

The event will take place during the 2 Tage Wedding Kulturfestival at neontoaster. More details inside the attached image.

I’ll look forward to seeing you!

I’m cutting as usual the strips of black-and-white photographic film developed yesterday. I then scan and store them in transparent sleeves.

I don’t make analog prints anymore, I am a lover of hybrid techniques: I shoot on film because the process, slow and thoughtful, is useful to me. I print digital because it gives me more creative freedom. I hate religions, I pursue my visions. Continue reading

New entry for my long-term project “Around”, around a prickly pear in Sicily.

Project statement
In project “Around” multiple points of view are put together in a single image. Several segments of space and time collapse into a complex-layered unit, just like an entire movie that would have been taken by turning around the subject and fixated on one frame. This creates a dense stratification of detail and gives the viewer a richer and deeper dimension to explore, while maintaining the power of visual synthesis that photography offers in respect to cinematography.
