My artistic work differs from the many examples of contemporary portrait and nude photography where eroticism and exhibitionism are increasingly present...

I prefer to represent the body, in general, in a more romantic, delicate and sensual way, as in the pictorial representations of the great painters of the Renaissance period, whom I particularly admire, so much so that I dare to create a "re-birth" through my subjects, which, while being of today, are transported to an almost forgotten time. 

Before starting this work, which develops over 4 years, I studied with passion and interest the poses and lights of the great masters of the Renaissance. 

I chose the fabrics and sheers in warm tones and deliberately kept the brightness low throughout the portfolio. Of course, I used a low-contrast light reminiscent of the workshops of the great masters, in fact they were always oriented towards the north to have a subdued light. 

Of my journey in the field of photography, it is undoubtedly the work that has taken the most time and all my energies to try to reshape, in a modern tone, the old masterpieces that I have always admired.
