Art

Photography is a career but also a passion for art, and I always carry at least one camera on me all the time (no, my phone does not count). They say that the best camera is the one that is always with you, so you better back a good one. Also because “access is king”, and the first form of access is just “being there”.

Most of my artistic work echoes the visual journey of an Italian photographer through the West Coast of the United States, especially Los Angeles. Between Spaghetti-Western and Neo-Noir, I share through my photographs the wonder I experience as I discover breathtaking landscapes and iconic details.

My latest project converged in the illustration of Electric Moons: A Social History of Street Lighting in Los Angeles by India Mandelkern, which was favorably reviewed by Alta, the LA Times, LAist and many other outlets.


The easiest way to keep up to date with my passion projects is to follow my arts and landscape Instagram account, which you can see below, or to follow my blog where the images are displayed at a slightly better resolution than social media, and I offer a little more elaboration on the story behind the images.
