About

About

I understand photography as a dialogue from personal to global; like a game in which the personal and social codes are put at stake to be reinvented, a continuous flow between the photographer and the photographed, a bridge between masks and identities. For this reason, Iraises my work as a tool of exploration, questioning and searching for identity, for each own and others.
