Commissioned works portfolio
Paris and Naples based.
Literature, cinema and contemporary art studies background, I can fully design and manage a communication project. I’m Black Spring Graphics Studio and Food Stories Agency founder and creative director, both communication agencies and creative studios.
As a photographer I’m engaged in stage photography, in close collaboration with several theatre companies, both in communication projects and in creative projects. I shoot food and tell about restaurant lives. I also aim to tell about food as social sharing experience and ordinary practice. I am represented by Seeeds Gallery, Paris. I cover business and corporate events: from marketing events to meetings, from academic conferences to press show cases. Also engaged in portraits and fashion photography (short list Bourse du talent mode 2012 with Karl Gasser Story and Shortlist Bottega Veneta ‘New Exposure‘ photography competition with An index of metals). Eventually, editorial and documentary photographer, often dedicated to tell about football passion cultures in the world.
I also work in educational and academic environment, conceiving and running workshops, pedagogical projects, masterclasses.
The word studio: time we need to acquire a perfect knowledge, analysis of a subject, but also practice, experiment. And it also means to observe. That is all I try to do when I am face to somebody else’s works or artworks. To me, achieving a commissioned work implies that we build up a collaboration, a partnership. The studio is also the workroom where are collected matters to be used, later, in my personal projects
