As a photographer and storyteller, I am interested in polarizing contemporary matters, emotionally charged, each party battling for a supreme narrative with bending the truth at best and organized disinformation at worst. What can we believe? How can we find the common ground we need to co-exist? In a world of confusing arguments and counterarguments, I am searching for a universal moral and ethical compass as guidance.
My audio-visual work is part documentary, part fiction, part vision; not journalism not art; neither plain stills nor moving; both series and standalone images at once. With a background in journalism and economy, and as a life-long nomad, my interests are social and political issues but always of global concern and deeply rooted in reality: the interaction with our environment, the fabric of societies, the way we decide to connect, partition, organize the world we live in.
My practice is project driven. A single image – as beautiful and strong it might be – is not my interest unless it fits into a sequence, framed by a narrative giving each photograph context. No narrative has value without context. Breaking through the boundaries of rationale, allowing to detach from a documentary point of view, in my works I experiment with forms of emotional storytelling. My projects are choregraphed, with exposition, climax, and resolution. Like stories.
