The beauty is what we grasp as it is passing by.
The desire to discover, the desire to excite, the taste for capturing, is what drives me to photograph and show my photos so that others can also enjoy these emotions.
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have captured in the photos is captured forever …
My passion for photography was born when I was given a Canon FTb film reflex camera for my birthday. It was the 1970s. My first subjects were portraits and landscapes, then I got to know nature and travel photography.
I like to discover new worlds but I am also fascinated by the fauna that has allowed me to know the behavior of the various animal species. In my travels I really like photographing wild animals, but also populations and their habits and customs.
Since 2014 I have taken part in national and international photographic competitions, receiving numerous awards that have allowed me to obtain the title of AFIAP (Artist of the International Federation of Photography) and subsequently EFIAP (Excellence of the International Federation of Photography).
In 2014 I was invited to Turkey and took part in the exhibitions organized in 2015 in the rooms of the Arkas Museum as part of the important event “Izmir: an inheritance for tomorrow” and the subsequent publication of a catalog book with photos taken by all authors.
Also in 2015 I was invited to exhibit my photos at the “YI XIAN International Photography Festival” in China, with nearly 5000 works by 167 authors from all over the world.
I have also had significant experiences with photo reportage during my last trips to Romania, China and Turkey.
I have participated in various collective and personal exhibitions both in Tuscany and in other regions, always obtaining positive acclaim.
