I received my first camera at the age of 6; my dad had resolved that a bakelite relic of the Sixties, even equipped with flash with disposable bulbs and a very posh pink bag, was of no use anyway. Indeed, it was good fun, especially dropping the hot exhausted bulbs on my friends' open hands during the mass in the church.

Despite that unlucky start I kept collecting cameras of all sorts; when I found out what they were really meant for I started collecting nice shots too.

I have never studied Photography; however I followed for three years a course of Architecture Photography offered by Paolo Brandinelli, one of my tutors at the University of Florence where I graduated in Architecture. After moving to London I improved the quality of my images (so they say), in this aided sometimes by several post production passages.

In October 2009 I had my first personal exhibition at El Aguajal in Hackney for the East London Photography Festival.

Equipment: eyes, heart, passion, instinct, time.
