Born in 1978 in Andria in southern Italy, I grew up in a non-rich family and had a happy childhood. In 1989 I moved to Bologna with my family, a difficult change but one that allowed me to discover a passion for drawing and music.

While watching an artisan restore a church, I decided that I wanted to become an artist too.

I started attending a graphic arts school and became very passionate about the image and its world: I also discovered the camera and was very fascinated by it, since then I have taken several photography and reportage courses at John Kaverdash Academy in Milan, after some time I started working for a company as a printing technician and as a photographer.

I am a humanist and I nod to nature and in my images I focus on time.

This started with the discovery of a degenerative eye disease, and this problem made me reflect on how everything can change quickly.

Every human being lives a limited time, which, when related to the time of the universe, is as long as a blink of an eye.

It is through the search for time that my work as an artist is based, trying to photographically reproduce it making it dreamy and dreamy and sometimes relating it to the human being; I try to create visions that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also emotional, creating bridges that reconnect man to nature.
