A good photo tries to capture the world
as we know it. 

A great photo reveals the world
as we have never seen it before.

Exhibitions
As an artist I exhibited my works in Italy, France, Germany and Las Vegas.
Here you can find a selection of my most meaningful shots.
Salon De La Photo in Paris
Salon De La Photo in Paris

In November 2018 I exhibited some photos during the Salon De La Photo in Paris: the exhibition was organized by Canson® in their booth with Canson®  Infinity Ambassadors’ works. The Salon De La Photo is dedicated to photography and is held every year at the Parc des Expositions in Porte of Versailles.

Photokina in Cologne

In September 2018 I exhibited some photos during the Photokina in Cologne (Germany): the exhibition was organized by Canson® in their booth with Canson®  Infinity Ambassadors’ works and in the Canon® booth. The Photokina is the world’s largest trade fair for photography (media, technology, products, etc.) 

The Venice Biennale
The Venice Biennale

In October 2011 and together with many other international artists, I exhibited 2 photographic works in the group show called “Neoludica” dedicated to art and videogaming. This exhibition was one of the official side events of the 54th Venice Biennale.

The catalogue “Arte e Videogames. Neoludica 2011-1966”, Sikra, 2011 by Debora Ferrari and Luca Traini gathers in one book all the works exhibited.

This exhibition, hosted during the event, was actually a strong innovation since it dealt with the topic of videogaming in an unprecedented way, that is, in a manner not totally acknowledged by the institutional art system. Thus, this exhibition has become a “general” point of reference and a summary of the state-of-the-art relations between videogaming and art itself, inside it.

Extra Moenia Gallery
Extra Moenia Gallery

In 2010 I collaborated with the painter Rossella Vasta (First prize for painting at the Florence International Biennial in 2003) in a photographic project and in the book “Interruptio”. This book gathers the experience of those who – artists, doctors and intellectuals – had to face the interruption caused by a serious illness. Due to the narrative approach with regards the different health problems dealt with in it, the book has become an example of “narrative medicine” and has been chosen as study material for the Doctor of Medicine Program  held at the School of Medicine and Public Health in Wisconsin.

The photos taken by Rossella Vasta and freely interpreted by me during post-production became 4 glass printings then published in the book. They were exhibited in the “Extra Moenia” art gallery curated by Giuliana D’Orazio in Todi (Umbria) together with the works of the American artist, Don Kimes.

I have been dealing with advertising photography and high-end portraits since 2002.

Thanks to the excellence achieved with my pictures,
Canson has chosen me as Ambassador of their fine arts world:
the sole Italian photographer chosen among an élite of 25 photographers selected all around the world.
Canson is the oldest paper factory internationally, world leader in fine art paper and sponsor of the Louvre Museum since 2010.

I am still learning,
because the subject of study
always seems in process.
