Venice photographers

My job is to be a father. My profession is to create images.

I had an artistic education, I study drawing, theater, cinema, to then move on to photography. The key thing for me is not the means but the realization of the idea.

My photographic research evolves through the use of water; it’s my passion. In 2006 I founded Underwater City Productions. A container where I publish my ideas and completed projects. Water is part of me .. it is my amniotic fluid, it flows inside me as if it were my blood.

I was born and live in Venice. Water is an important element, it is something mysterious that brings me serenity and inspiration; and over the years it has become the common thread of all my works

I collaborated from a very young age with various Venetian institutions and museums such as Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana for which I made 3 documentaries.

My work has given me the opportunity to meet and work for people in the field of architecture and art such as: Tadao Ando, ​​Francois Pinault, Jean-Jacques Aillagon, Francesco Bonami, Mona Hatoum and Umberto Pelizzari. And fashion houses such as: Furla, Al Duca d’Aosta and companies in the artistic glass sector such as Venini Spa.

With the Underwater City collection I created a traveling exhibition on the bottom of the Belmond Hotel Cipriani swimming pool during the Venice Biennale of Art in 2016; where guests armed with swimsuits and snorkels could visit it by diving into the pool, immersing themselves in my submerged visionary world.

I finished the Academy with full marks in Disciplines and Performing Arts, award-winning as a director with the documentary on Venice: Nero Pece. I have exhibited in more than 15 solo exhibitions, 20 group exhibitions in Italy and abroad. The most relevant with the Underwater City collection during the Venice Biennale of Art in 2016 and in Vienna and Pretoria in their respective Cultural Institutes.
