In 2006, I took up photography out of the blue : without any training and therefore not feeling limited by technical aspects. Just by doing it, I found and created my own style. A style achieved by using nothing else then natural light and my eyes. Like with analogue photography, my editing is stripped to a bare minimum.
My photographs are described as sensual and erotic, using an alienating and sometimes even raw style. Whether they are portraits, nudes, landscapes or narrative images, I never have a set up plan for my shoots. All photos are the result of improvisation and intuition. I choose a model and a location and, depending on the weather, mood of the day, model-interaction and the settings, the image is born.
The people I work with are chosen by intuition, I am never looking for perfect bodies or perfect faces. It’s the look in someone’s eyes that intrigues me. This way I worked with lots of beautiful people from different countries.
My work was part of the Florence Biennale 2011, Open Art Fair Utrecht 2012, the Biennales of Chianciano 2013, Salerno 2016 and London 2017 and was published in several editorial books. In November 2014 my first book “In search of Intimacy” was published by Lecturis.
The photos on this website have no titles since I only invented them afterwards and on demand of others. For a while I felt the need to make up titles with exhibitions and publications in books in mind, but it never felt right. Then I stopped altogether when a friend pointed out to me that by giving my photos a title, and even more by explaining how they were created, I was depriving viewers from the right to make their own interpretation of a picture.
