Introducing (R) – My first installation

For some years now I have been searching for a way to engage the viewer. To succeed in making him actively participate, beyond mere observation.

On September 12 I will present my first installation to the public at a group show in Milan.

More info coming soon...

First shooting after the COVID-19 quarantine  

Wednesday, 05-27-2020 10:00h - 18:00h

Como, Italy

Italy / Europe

After my last shooting at the beginning of March with Sara (some images somewhere in this article) I took this period to go trough many shootings I did since last autumn and prepared some post-production images that I' now publishing on my web site, instagram and, of course, here on STRKNG.

It was a moment to think about what direction to move in the future and so many good things happened; soon I will be represented by a gallery in Milan and I also started to sell some images of my dolls on auction sites.

I'm so happy it is now time to start create some new images.

In a world where women alter their bodies trying to become perfect like dolls, I started my journey in photography by shooting with “real” dolls trying to represent them as women.

Later, I began shooting portraits with real women just to realise that they can have an “unexpressed” beauty that is not what fashion magazines propose.

My interest is not limited to a purely aesthetic, objective beauty, I always wonder about what the model is able to communicate through the lens.

The models no longer perform the role of a mere mannequin, they are no longer the soulless bodies portrayed in fashion, instead, they become characters, each interpreting their own story that they let emerge with each shot.

The “fil rouge” of my images is undoubtedly eroticism and I like to make it clear by taking specific areas of the female body, sometimes accentuating imperfections.

Each asymmetry, mole or flaw becomes the detail that gives character to the subject and, instead of diverting the attention away, I rather place it at the center of the observer’s gaze to be contemplated, admired even.

I try to tell a unique story with each image – being that a fragment of an arm, a breast or a look – to conveys the charge and strength that the woman possesses and that I try to make it eternal.
