A shiver down my spine, a déjà-vu, and it is autumn again.
Photo: solo exhibition “IO ABITO A MATRIMONIO”
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!

Among the huge crowd,
You’re born alone,
You die alone.

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