"There is always a part of me in the pictures I take.
I photograph people, lovers, simply those with whom I share a moment.
My work is about gender, identity and intimacy.
My dad was a pilot and he showed me the world from another perspective.
That's why I live and work between Porto Alegre, Berlin, and Madrid.
I feel at home all around the world and I am in love with airplanes.
I was born in Rome in 1980.
In 2007 I became a freelance Photographer, specializing in portrait, fashion, and documentary and autobiographical reportage.
I never differentiated between commercial commissions and personal projects: the passion I dedicated was the same.
I have never made any distinction, in fact, it is by mixing and enhancing these different languages that I was able to make them one.
Thanks to photography I have traveled and traveling allowed me to grow and enrich my cultural and human baggage.
I live to feel. Creating images makes me better express what I feel, what we all feel.
Since March I have had a personal experience that has changed my life.
My strength was to react and to create this project.
I am this."
Locked down in a ruthless quarantine in Madrid,
My ex-girlfriend and I are being challenged by time and space, wrapped in a sheet of irony.
We just ended a relationship of many years.
I am Italian, Cloé is French, both far away from home, both very close.
What comes from that is an almost-live essay, if not social-media-live, between four walls.
Art burgeons, alive, in the tempest.
Touching the Void with Gloves.
Coronavirus separates people.
Paradoxically in our case it unites us.
We broke up after a long relationship when it all began.
This pandemic decided for us that we had to stay together more than ever.
Confined, just the two of us, between four walls.
The claustrophobia gives me the power to react and be active.
I need to touch this empty moment.
I want to challenge myself to not become crazy.
To be the light in the darkness.
Dealing with this worldwide and personal separation in the reduced space of our home.
