Let's go back to the start, how did your story with photography begin?
I started taking pictures of my self when I was 12. For ten years I just took selfportraits in my room in Calabria. I am an extremely shy person and it was difficult for me to ask someone to pose for me. Then, when I turned 22 years old, I started to take pictures of my friends and my lovers. I still remember the first time, it was amazing. I went home and I started crying. It was as if I felt alive for the first time in my life.
