What made you get into photography?
When I was a child I passed many hours in the modern art gallery of my grandparents “La Chiocciola”; it was one of the first Italian Avant-Garde galleries. I’ve grown up among artists, the works of Picasso, Miro’, Wharhol, and many others. My Grandfather was a photographer too, so when I was little he has helped me to cultivate my love for photography. Actually, I traveled a lot with him to look for beauty around the world. I’m really proud about my childhood and family, since they have taught me the importance of culture.
How would you describe your photography style?
Juicy, silly, and colorful.
Any photographers or artists that you looked up to that helped influence your style?
I’ve always been inspired by Elio Fiorucci, because he is colorful, crazy, innovative and always sexy! Ever since I was a child I’ve admired his stores, and I find his pin-ups as the representation of my ideal of woman: naughty, provocative and really self-confident.
Did you study photography in school or are you self-taught?
No I didn’t. I am self-taught.
What do you feel is the most challenging thing about starting a photography business?
Thanks to social networks, such as Intagram, Facebook, etc., photography has become accessible to everybody. Indeed, people often act as photographers even if they don’t know anything about it. Photography means talent, dedication, study, and a lot of research. Actually, according to my experience, here in Italy people are still narrow-minded about alternative looks (tattoo, piercing, strange hair color, etc.). It was a long road to become credible as one of the main alternative Italian photographers, since most photographers deals with high fashion or reportage.
What do you love most about being a photographer?
The things I do love most about being a photographer are the possibility to materialize my dreams, and the capacity to give color to women and reality.
