Who is the person behind the photos?

My name is Luca, I'm 33, I was born in Perugia where I live and work.

How did you discover photography and what makes you keep on doing it?
There was a precise moment which completely changed the photography concept I had. I was in dark room when I saw for the first time an image appearing from a white paper. I fell in love with that moment and I'm living it again with each and every new photograph I print.

What do you want to show through your pictures?
In the pictures I take, I put my moods. Watching my old pictures, I can perfectly remember my feeling at that moment the photo was taken and what I wanted to tell. They are a sort of diary in which I write about people who I want to tell something about, or about myself even though I'm not in the frame; I ‘speak’ about places that strike me and that remind me of something even if it's the first time I've seen them, or simply I want to mark where I am along my path.

Which artist would you like to work with?
This question is very difficult. I would have loved to wonder around Milan with Gabriele Basilico; have a peek into an Avedon's set and speak about whatever with Newton would have been amazing, but I can't imagine myself working with any of them. 
Instead, I would like to print a picture with Jan Scholz, Micmojo, and shoot a videoclip with Anton Corbjin!

In your opinion, what are the characteristics of a photographer and what differentiates it from a good photo taker?
Beside the camera, a real photographer shoots because he feels the need to do so and puts a piece of his soul in any picture. Too often a good "photo taker" takes care of the result immediately visible to him on the surface of the picture or just about tecnique, without focusing on the meaning of the image. He wants to just take a nice picture.

Favourite websites?
I don't have any favourite website, but certainly I often visit, although this could sound pretty obvious.

What do you expect from your photographic future?
I want to learn, increase my skills and knowledge. I want to stay free.
