Where are you from? Where do you live?
I was born in Tolmezzo, 50 km from Udine. It’s five years that I am based in Paris.
How old are you?
How do you pay your bills? Are you working as a professional photographer?
Mostly doing art direction in advertising. No, I am not a professional photographer.
What cameras do you use?
Only film cameras: a very old Yashica, a minox 35mm, a minolta, a polaroid sometimes.
What/who do you enjoy to shoot the most?
People. And stuffs not interesting to be photographed.
Do you believe in god?
Big question…depending of definitions…If you mean god as a supernatural creator, no, I don’t believe in it. But it’s complicated, I am an atheist in trouble with the human supremacy.
Any photographer or artist inspiring you?
Philip Lorca di Corcia, Stephen Shore, Saul Leiter, Nan Goldin, William Eggleston, Martin Parr, Thomas Struth…but I am constantly checking out younger photography generation, too (Chaad Moore, Colin Lafleche etc…).
Last but not least I love artists from XVI century. The gaze of a man painted from Tiziano? Incredible.
What do you drink on a night out?
Beer and/or wine.
Do you like dancing?
More then like… “I would believe only in a god that knows how to dance.“ said Nietzsche. (Damn it! I should use this for the previous question about god…)
What’s your favorite first name?
Are you a fashion addicted?
What’s your favorite tv series?
Twin Peaks and Californication
Recommend us a book.
“Rayuela” by Julio Cortazar.
What’s the country of your dreams?
I guess I was a gipsy in another life so impossible to answer. I’m dreaming everywhere.
Have you ever been to Iceland?
Not yet, too cold.
What song would you choose for a slideshow of your work?
A melancholic one, something like “what can I give you ” by Nick Cave. I don’t know if it really fits with my photos but it fits with myself any case.
Ask yourself a question. Tell me your answer (like Marzullo does)
Why are you so tortured? Because I ask myself too many questions.
