As a traveler, I start my first adventures in the early ’80s, and soon I jump to Asia. Nepal was my first big trip, which really shaped me. Until then, photography was not something I had particularly struck. But one day, I began to feel concern about capturing environments and customs that moved me and dazzled me. From the moment I took a camera in my hands, I started looking through the viewfinder of the world with a premise: The fewer explanations have to give an image, the better. That means that speaks for itself.
Since then I have not stopped traveling. Photography plays an increasingly important role in my journeys, but also the desire to ensure that the images captured grant me keep traveling; even if you’re back at home. In an effort to give shape to this idea, my photos are an example of how I see and understand other cultures, their persistence.
Today I cannot say if I feel more as photographer or as a traveler, but I confess that I couldn’t travel without my camera.
Since the mid-90s, photography is a very important part of my life and would like to believe that is noticed by a unique style or just a wish fulfilled: my pictures tell stories. With this desire to fuse my two passions, I have achieved many national and international photographic awards, and have published reports on travel-trade publications.
Each achievement encourages me, and today has made me want to show others the roads I have traveled with the camera and all that still waiting for me. I wish you enjoy it as much as I with the way I look life.
“Now when I was a little chap I had a passion for maps. I would look for hours at South America, or Africa, or Australia, and lose myself in all the glories of exploration. At that time there were many blank spaces on the earth, and when I saw one that looked particularly inviting on a map (but they all look that) I would put my finger on it and say, `When I grow up I will go there”.
