about my practice
Although photography is the main medium that I use, I am strongly influenced by painting and sculptural practice.
I would define the procedure that I follow as “meta-directing”. For me the hunt of the 'true' image is not the goal as in documentary photography or photojournalism, but rather the search of a raw material. I treat each photograph as an "object trouvé ". The use of current technology allows me to shape at will the digital image in order to reflect the idea that I have in advance in my mind, in that way post-processing isn't just a corrective method but becomes a creative process through which directing after the actual shooting of the picture is possible.
The resulting images are at the boundary line between plausibility or not, potentiality and non-potentiality, random and constructed.
Playing with the perception of viewers I question the role and power of photography in an era that is dominated by it.
