I have always been intrigued by photography. My study of light and technical processes has been greatly enhanced by my history in film production, from my early experience as Art Director for tvc's to producing documentaries and prime time viewing for Italian television. A photograph stops time, stirs emotion by transporting the viewer in a visual narration that can be complex and layered like an artistic portrait, or immediate and gripping like a news photograph, but at its best, proposes a viewpoint not previously considered or experienced. We tend to believe what we see, and now we are bombarded by innumerable possibilities and alternative realities. Mass use of cell phones to shoot and create images risks pulling photography back into a certain banality, but it is also what makes these 'interesting times' for photography.
