Statement

My artistic practice is focused on the seek of the elsewhere, in which the archaic lays, for a deeper understanding of contemporary times.

Photography is my privileged mean: it is the language of distance, because it puts the spectator far from the time and space of the image.

Also, photography is the portal that unifies the interiority of the artist with the universal narratives of human experience. So these elsewhere result to be at the same time truths and myths.

My aim is to give birth to images that work like aesthetic intuitions and metaphoric distillations of imaginaries connected to landscape.

This vertigo generates archetypal reminiscences in eyes and mind and leads to imaginaries about distance and what is meant to be distant.

Currently I'm focusing on a research about Mediterranean as a space and place of encounters and happenings, mythical and contemporary, that generate a whole visual narration of its landscape.
