Researched by Raffaele Montepaone
When did start a passion for the photography?
My first contact with photography was in the middle of the 80s.
What was your first camera ?
My first camera was a gift of a friend, a NIKON FT that I still use sometimes.
What is photography to you ? And what should not be instead ?
Photography let me see the world with different eyes. The most important hings for mee in my pictures are expression, atmosphere, content.. and less the technical quality. I target on making the audience “feel” the picture. If I am able to reych this, it’s a personal success and satisfaction for my work.
Which masters of photography inspires you ?
I’m not inspired from masters of photography because I have my own style. But I like to see pictures of S. Salgado, A.Adams and H.Newton
What is the photo that struck you the most of a great photographer of the story ?
The series of photos of S.Salgado with the title “Genesis ”
What is your favorite technique ?
Usually I make digital photos but sometimes also analog.
Why do street photography ?
I like the atmosphere of streets with or without people and the relationship between city/streets and people.
What is your best shot and what does it represent for you ?
I don’t have a photo of mine that I prefer because every picture has his own story and his own feeling.
What is relationship with the street and the people who are in your shots ?
I wouldn’t speak about a relationship with street/people and me. I like to catch people totally free and naturaly, to moments of their life and to catch life in the city/streets.
