“For almost 10 years I suffer retinal detachments in my right eye and I’ve spent 2 years circa between doctors and hospital.
My approach to photography as two main levels: expression, to try to show how I see; and therapy, to try to mitigate the disease's effect on my soul. Whilst doing this, I try to realize artworks which project the observer in a different view and sometimes I aim also to transport him in a soothing, dream-like ambience.”

I’m 34 years old and i’m from south Italy. Since 2003 I’ve been living and working in Rome where i studied and graduated as an Energy Engineer. In 2016 I moved to London. When i was 25 i suffered three retinal detachments in my right eye; i’ve had to go through 4 surgeries that almost took away my eye and I’ve spent 2 years circa between doctors and hospitals. Towards the end of this period i decided to take a reflex and start to capture and show the world as my sick eye shows it to me. In all these years i’ve refined several experimental shooting techniques and i’m currently experimenting on one which allows me to alterate and control the light’s rays shape and direction. With these techniques mastery and their mixing together, i’m able to produce everything from a stripy abstract, to a blurry or painting-like subject. Despite the photography media, my main inspiration comes from painters, William Turner and Rothko sur tous.
