I AM AN ITALIAN PHOTOGRAPHER AND CLASSICIST BASED IN NYC, WHERE I ALSO TEACH CLASSICS AT COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

IN MY DOCUMENTARY WORK I AM ESPECIALLY INTERESTED IN PORTRAYING WHAT WOMEN AND MEN LEAVE BEHIND, WITH A FOCUS ON THE ORDINARY. EACH SUBJECT I PHOTOGRAPH - BE IT A CAR, A BUILDING, A STREET, A SOCCER FIELD, AND SO ON - REVEALS THE HUMAN PRESENCE WITHOUT NECESSARILY SHOWING HUMANS. I REPRODUCE REALITY AS FAITHFULLY AS POSSIBLE, AND FOR THIS REASON I DO NOT RETOUCH MY PHOTOGRAPHS. HOWEVER, I SEEK TO IMMORTALIZE EVERYDAY SUBJECTS UNDER PECULIAR CONDITIONS (IN TERMS OF LIGHTING, CONTEXT, OR VIEWPOINT), SO THAT WHAT IS PART OF EVERYONE'S ROUTINE SUDDENLY BECOMES UNUSUAL, IF NOT SURREAL

IN MY PORTRAITS I SEEK TO CAPTURE TRUTH AND VULNERABILITY, THUS REPRESENTING EACH OF MY SUBJECTS FOR WHO THEY ARE BEYOND THEIR PUBLIC PERSONA. I ALWAYS FAMILIARIZE WITH THE MEN AND WOMEN I PHOTOGRAPH, AND I TAKE MY TIME TO BECOME ACQUAINTED WITH THEIR PERSONALITY, THEIR IDIOSYNCRASIES, AND THEIR TYPICAL EXPRESSIONS AND GESTURES

I HAVE EXHIBITED IN NYC AND IN ITALY, AND MY WORK HAS BEEN FEATURED ON FINE ART MAGAZINES SUCH AS PASTICHE, DRENCHED MAG AND MUSÉE MAGAZINE
