Have you ever felt like you have been in a place before? 
Well, I always feel like that while working on my photography. 
I keep looking around, trying to find the connection between myself and the environment.
Sometimes I can't find it, so I keep coming back to the same places that I know have something hidden, just waiting for me to discover it.
Until, finally, I find it. 
The camera is the tool that allows me to establish that connection.
And my goal is to make the viewer feel that emotion too.

I am an Italian Landscape Photographer living in Essex, UK.
I’ve always been passionate about photography. Despite studying scientific subjects at school and working as a professional software developer, I kept working on my photography as a counterweight to my rational and scientific everyday life.
I am interested in landscape photography, with particular attention to the technical-formal balance between the natural landscape elements and the light conditions that modify their perception.
My images seek a compositional balance through the methodical subtraction of all the background noise that divert attention from the main subject. They don’t want to describe, they are an interpretation of reality. They do not try to amaze, but only to bring out simple and clear elements.
In my self-taught training I was influenced by photographers like Harry Callahan, Bill Brandt and Michael Kenna, and their ability to simplify the landscape representation.
Lately I've been striving to add color in my landscape work, still focusing on the mission of not to confuse the viewer with unnecessary aesthetic trappings.
