A constant with my research is the analysis of the environment all around me, both on a sociological and historical point of view. Through photography and its several possible representations, I try to find the existing links in reality, giving back to the image the suggestions and feelings experienced. The (historical or sociological) context I start from to create a work of art is a central point, but in its formal expression, the image can live even without a specific reference and in a totally out-of-context way. As a matter offact, in all my works there is a significant ambiguity that creates a sort of suspension, of doubt and which opens to several interpretations and new forms of imagination. My gaze starts from reality and lingers over fleeting atmospheres, uncommon elements or enigmatic situations and, even if representing something concrete, we never have the perception of the described time or place.
