I started photographing at high school with a contax T3 with black and white film because I could develop them in my mother‘s bathroom and work independently. When I discovered photography I could find a way to see my daily life differently, I learnt to have a step inside my surroundings, into the nature of my relationships and environment and also a step outside of the everyday life, that let me read beyond the appearances and find another sphere of conception of time before more melancholic then as a endless river of events. From those years I have been photographing diaries, my home, my school, my classmates and my family, at the time I got a really deep encounter with the diaries of Noboyoshi Araki, Nan Goldin and Daido Moryama. In them I found those instincts that were driving me in the photographic process , for example, the closeness to the subject, the condition of solitude, the flowing of life and changes, the power of poetry and love and the movements of curiosity
