Photography to me is a way of living and seeing, a way to question and encounter the world. It is a philosophy, a love for knowledge, a perpetual spark that stimulates an uninterrupted dance between the stasis of certainties and the uncertainty of new perspectives.
Through my photographic practice I end up to explore different nuances of myself as a photographer, as a thinker and as a human being.
Photography and its possible manipulability are precious ways to expand our visual categories: by letting both of them look at the world with us, it is possible to see or discover something unexpected, something different than what we would see without them.
I was born in Florence in 1991 and graduated with a BA in Philosophy from University La Sapienza of Rome. During my years in Rome, I combined my university studies with professional courses of photography at CTS ft. Società Geografica Italiana and ISFCI, the Institute of Photography in Rome. Upon graduation from the course, I joined ISFCI as a teaching assistant in Portrait Photography. Between 2012 and 2017, I also worked as an assistant photographer, model, workshop and masterclass producer at Primopiano Studio (Rome). In 2017, I moved to the United Kingdom where I pursued a Master’s Degree in Photography at the University of Brighton.
The Works section includes my research-based photographic practice that views photography and philosophy as two sides of the same coin. Both are rooted in a deep interest in the human understanding of life and of the inner and outside world. Through my research and art, I look for embodied dimensions and experiences linked to philosophical concepts and questions. I usually work inductively, following an initial intuition and experimenting around it.
