“Nature was something wild and terrible, although beautiful. I watched in awe the earth under my feet to see what the forces had made, the shape, the world, the material of their work. This was the Earth that we hear about, created from the chaos in the beginning of time.” Inspired by Henry David Thoreau
Nature, in all its shapes and representations, always loved and blessed, is represented through my photography in its purest form.
My love for pristine landscapes led me over the years to explore the woods and mountains, highlands and cliffs, near or far from home, always in order to capture, through a single photo, all the immensity that Mother Nature has been able to build over millennia.
Getting to the top of a ridge after a long and draining walk in the darkness of the night; to enjoy those few minutes of oblique light that paints the surrounding landscape; to escape the pressures of everyday life to dive into a forest during a heavy snowfall, with just the company of the blizzard; to wander and to get lost across the extensive highlands surrounded by high mountains, looking for the perfect photograph; to chase wildlife between steep ridges, observing and taking pictures of their actions; all this represents to me some of the most rewarding activities that life can offer me.
During my career as a photographer, I dealt with several trips and saw the most different landscapes. I particularly remember with nostalgia: the Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Skye, the Lofoten Islands in Norway, the Island of Boavista in Cape Verde, the Madeira Islands and Santo Stefano in Portugal, the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands; Peru, Bolivia and Chile in South America. At these distant lands are then added national parks and Italian regions, such as the National Park of Abruzzo and the Gran Sasso, the Dolomites, the Pollino National Park and the Valle d’Aosta; closest places but equally charming and beautiful.
