analogic nostalgic


Look, think, focus, move, control, push, hope. Hope is the part I prefer. It’s all uncertain, until you have the negative in your hands, seeing it, touching it. It’s more true, more honest, because what you shoot, you’ll develop, in your bathroom, with amateur equipment and lots of insecurity, but with a tireless willingness to do it all alone. This is my way to tell who I am, through what I see and what I feel, through all the emotions that I try to transmit with every single photo I took.

These photographs represent my life, my friends, my youth in an honest way, with the purpose to share happiness and to create a bond between me and everyone who looks at these images. Photography is my way to create community and share moments.
