How did you choose your means of expression?
I didn’t actually chose it – it just happened.
Is this medium secondary to
or closely linked to your subject?
Neither. It’s just a medium. It could be anything.
The important thing is the subject and what’s going on in front of the camera.
How does a work session take shape?
I do a lot of preparation before the shoot, and the shoot itself is quite quick.
Can you explain to me how your
work has evolved since starting out?
I started with flowers and portraits of my sisters when I was very young.
Step by step, I grew up and became involved with fashion by chance. After that,
I really started working in fashion in Milan and in Paris right now (I have lived in Paris for 4 years).
ON A PERSONAL NOTE
Do your origins and culture play
a role in the works that you produce?
Not really my origins (I’m Italian) but definitely the way I grew up.
I grew up surrounded by nature, in a big country house.
I think it’s thanks to that that I feel very attached to nature.
What are your sources of inspiration?
It can be everything. It can be a beautiful light and place or a great model.
I take inspiration from books, movies and music and, of course, from other artists’ works.
ON A MORE
Are your works more of a dialogue,
a trace or a denunciation?
Do you wish to make viewers wonder
or do you prefer to question them?
I wish them to wonder.
Is art poetry or social intervention?
It can be both.
