" I love to feed my mind and my soul with audio/visual emotions and synesthetic perceptions and my favourite aspiration is to be able to solicit the viewer in my photographs through a personal imaginative and/or meditative journey, which may reveal sometimes the sad awareness of our innumerable weaknesses and imperfections.
I experiment a mental and emotional involvement that sometimes ends up revealing within a few hours or even after months of research; that's why my approach with photographic works, can provide various levels of interpretation and transfiguration, levels of expression and communication which in my views may evolve through the use of simple symbolisms up to a complex plot of metaphors and surreal paroxysms. As well sometimes the surrounding reality is capturing me in a simple but intriguing way.
I love to imagine myself as a tipsy tightrope walker, who staggering travels on the thin line which separates the real from surreal."
