Ego and Universe Using the camera to see and fix, in the few moments needed to take two overlapping shots, the Universe inside us; trees, sky, clouds in a room and inside ourselves. Lifting us from the earth we fly up and away towards the infinite space, which is our very essence...The Universe enfolds and pervades our ego like an enchanted veil. (2010-2015)

Movement Fixing movement or the creation of it is a nice game; it is the “historic” challenge of photography and cinema. Drawing and painting with light, which bears the colours of the rainbow to capture the breath of life gliding through the streets, a life in movement within space and time… (2010-2015)

Following time Taking advantage of an “error” in the most recent instrument capable also of taking photographs, that remarkable little factotum going by the name of iPhone, and endeavouring, as much as possible, to understand its secret and bend it to my will while accepting and even welcoming with pleasure that percentage of the unexpected which inevitably remains, I find myself catapulted into a secret and mysterious dimension: the passage of time and movement. A space-time dimension which evades our visual perception because we are not able to dominate it with our five senses. This brings me to reflect on the fleetingness of the moment, on the impermanence of matter, on the flowing of our own lives in an attempt to Follow Time in its inexorable passing where we appear ephemeral actors in a space which, because of its static nature, appears to outlive us despite the changes to which even it is subject.

Water emotions - Fondazione Querini Stampalia - Venezia  2012
This work comes from the bold manipulation of my photographs with the intention of transforming them into visions emerging from the deep, for water has almost always been the guiding-theme in my photography. Just like water, our mind is fluid and the images we see become dissolved in it. Transformed, they flutter and waver, becoming deformed with softened edges they assume new shapes, materializing and dematerializing emotions leading to the separation of form and colour, they take us back to the essence of things, our way of living and the multiplicity of our perceptions. In the merging of the calm and reflecting waters of the Venetian lagoon with the waters of the mountains, either in tumultuous descent over stones and rocks or, paradoxically, motionless, under the form of ice, I see a city engulfed, swept away by inexorable waves, by time and by the far distance which carries away even memories.... The past, the present, a future both mysterious and unpredictable which could change the face of history... Imminent catastrophes... What fate awaits water cities? What fate awaits a soul, a life? The whole flows in a universal embrace... (2005-2010)
