Artist Statement





I'm a Sicilian photographer now living in Amsterdam. 

I resort to photography for expression, memory and emotions. I always had problems remembering details from my past and images are helping me to get hold of moments I want to keep forever.

I never plan a shot, two analogue cameras - named Nikoletta and Olimpietta - are my solid companions inside a rusty backpack, and I like observing what is happening around me, changing shades or unnoticed details.

Every landscape is emotion and every stranger face has always a story behind to tell, if we only learn how to listen. As Henri Cartier-Bresson once said, you just have to live and life will give you pictures.
