I am an artist photographer who always wanted to explore the world and its secrets and legends. I started young at 20 when I first went walking across the Himalayas.
I have been fullfilled and feel grateful for these long journeys around the world. I took photos all over the planet working with people, their stories and landscapes, always creating a collaboration to elaborate the best photograph with them that could relate to their archaic realms.
In each sacred place I could find a hidden world that was there to offer a treasure and embracing it was a very deep life adventure.
The project "time and silence", photographs and films, has been exhibited all over Europe and United States (New York, Los Angeles) and has been supported by major foundations and art collectors.
In 2014 my experience of the world, mankind and sacred places, took me to initiate a new art project about lights and colors in Nature : “Lightscapes”.
Light is the source of life and the living world we live in.
My researches and spiritual practices took me to explore colors as healing process, then I wanted it to become my art work. I designed a world map of colors and went to search for the most beautiful colors and locations on earth. I traveled there and made photographs while I was in a full immersion in nature and lights tonalities.
There, photography and meditation met, again.
Sun lights are the most sacred and beautiful expression of the natural world and each color of them nourrish a part of me and you.
