Let your pictures tell a story. During the years as photographer/journalist/essayist and curator I’ve always looked for a personal narrative that could help me put a story together in a thoughtful way. Very soon I’ve felt bored by the dangerous & sticky idea of “beautiful images.” The ability of storytelling – a deep love for History and the need for different languages – is now the main difference between a “catcher of beautiful images” (closer to a lone collector) and a photographer who is a visual artist.
Please contact me – this is my e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org – if you feel the wish and the urgency to let your pictures talk! I can help you arrange your stories in a professional way.

Backstage set photography offers me a range of opportunities that street photography doesn’t give me in everyday life. In the early months of 2018 I worked as backstage set photographer for the Italian brand Reggiani Stretch in Varallo Sesia and for Estro Magazine/Park Hyatt Hotel in Milan. In both occasions I’ve been part of friend photographer/director Federico Garibaldi‘s troupe. Two exciting experiences that allowed me to seriously test my favorite cameras, FujiFilm X30 and Olympus OM-D E-M5, in two different professional situations: the three-day making of a documentary/promotional video and a typical fashion editorial shooting session.
