DOES IT REALLY MATTER?
I was born a few years ago near Turin, in the northern Italy. It was 1981, the Year of the Rooster according to the chines calendar, and the same year that Reagan went to the White House, Salvador was immerse in a civil war, Greece entered the European Union, the abortion law was approved in Spain and the DeLorean DMC-12, the car that was able to come to 2015 in Back to the Future, was produced. In Italy, 1981 was the year that IBM launched the first PC, the movie Indiana Jones was released and Donkey Kong dominated the videogame industry. This year, Bob Marley, Montale and Rino Gaetano left us forever.
I grew up in a small village where everyone knows everyone else by their first name. There is not too much to tell, I was rebellious and conformist and enthusiastic and boring and at the age of 21 I decided to leave. I looked for a job that would allow me to travel, and I was lucky to find it: I lived in Tunisia, Mexico, Dominican Republic and I was able to travel through much of Asia and Europe, before I ended up in Spain, where I currently live.
PHOTOGRAPHY. I approached this art through the years. Initially it was a little of a game, curiosity and a nice hobby to spent some time and not being bored. Almost without realizing it, I've gone from being an amateur to become professionally devote to it. How did I get here? Thanks to a millions of courses, days and days of essays and books. Still every day I continue learning and enjoy what I do.
