Who is the person behind the photos?

 I'm very curious and often feel emotions. I like to use my imagination, create connections, and go beyond the superficial look. I think this is inevitably present in my images.

How did you discover photography and what makes you keep on doing it? 
One day, about five years ago, through a series of coincidences and fortuitous events, I have come in possession of a camera and began to shoot: from that moment I felt that this "voice" would have accompanied me always. I continue to shoot, not only because in the meantime it has also become my profession, but because I know that I can express myself so deeply through this medium only.

What do you want to show through your pictures?
The lens is only a filter that sits between me and what I feel. For me, photography is more "feel" rather than "see" , and what I want is to feel sensations and feelings, to immerse myself in the soul of things, in their beauty, but more often in what's behind it, in the deep . I am very attracted to the shadowy areas: in many of my photographs there is this element, which is crucial for me. The shadow has a strong symbolic value, to increase the light, and I think that is why I am so fascinated by this element. I am more interested to the inner life of the subjects that I'm going to shoot, rather than their appearance: it's important to me to go beyond the surface, wait and create the right chemistry and empathy with the subjects in front of me.

Designers, photographers, graphics or people that inspire you?
Probably, two painters: Caravaggio and Hopper, because they fed light as a photographer! It would be impossible to list all the people who have inspired my imagination. Maybe I feel more akin to the work of women artists, not because I am a woman too, but because I believe that over time had a higher gear than men, and are distinguished by talent, creativity and courage. (Quotations must for Woodman, Arbus, Modotti, Godlin, Kahlo).

Tell us two bad habbits you would like not have
I'm incredibly lazy (I hate haste), often neglect my health. I'm too anxious.

What are your hobbies besides Photography?
See exhibitions and live concerts, going to the cinema, cooking. And above all, make bread at home (and eat this warm, freshly baked).

What do you expect from your photographic future?
I don't know, but I hope I never have to go down to the compromise of betraying myself, and my way of doing photography.
