of posters for imaginary films,

memories of another life,

still frames of strange dreams.

The subjects of the photographs are not models posing anymore, they are actors living those stories.

New Year's Resolutions Shoot better, shoot more, get out of the hole.


"It's like standing behind a glass wall, you cannot touch anything you see. I spent three quarters of my life shut outside, until I realized that the only way is to smash the glass and break in. And if you are afraid of getting hurt, try to imagine that you are old and almost dead and full of regrets".

(from "Due di due" by A. De Carlo)

Artists I love to take portraits of artists who want their art to be renowned, because they think it's great and it deserves attention.

Especially actors and performers, who are themselves art (even though, as actors, they are never really themselves...)

I'd love to take portraits of artists whose art is already acclaimed by many and I think it deserves to be celebrated.

Artists like Tim Burton, David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick, Uma Thurman as The Bride, Johnny Depp as William Blake, Eva Green as Angelique Bouchard, Kurt Cobain, Smashing Pumpkins with D'Arcy, PJ Harvey, Verdena, Jack Kerouac, Charles Baudelaire, Gustav Klimt, Salvador Dali, Gabe Leonard, Paolo Roversi, Tim Walker, Ellen von Unwerth and Guy Bourdin.

Maybe one day I'll meet them and take their portraits.

Strangers and Rockstars This ongoing project is my take on street photography.


I'm looking for someone interesting, someone who stands out from the crowd, someone dressed to kill, or at least to say something.

I love to see someone who screams at you by just walking in silence.

The sidewalk is a catwalk.

And I'm all eyes for the best models.
