How do you define your works?
Quite oniric, natural and simple, and with a storytelling feeling.
Do you prefer let your instincts guide you spontaneously or do you prefer to move with a plan while taking photos?
A mix of both. I prefer to plan everything, just to forget about it during the shooting and let my instinct guiding me. My best result arrives when I prepare everything in detail but don't need to really follow my plan :)
What’s beauty to you? Has your perspective changes through the years?
Beauty is something that never need to apologize with anyone. Of course my perspective changed, it evolved with my style. But the main thing remained: everyone is beautiful.
What makes you want to take photos?
It's the urgency of creating something. This pushes me to always work on new ideas.
What was so special about your shootings in Svalbard?
First of all, the fact that Svalbard is my favorite place in the world. I love nature, especially wild nature, which makes that place the perfect one. My shootings over there were always totally improvised, and I felt so blessed and inspired.
