My Little History of Photography

I have a folder in my computer named “History of Photography”...

Sunset on the Screens

I was getting near the end of my stay in Japan, and I hadn’t taken any pictures.
The Roppongi Hills Tower looked like the perfect easy place to shoot on and from.

Photo Archive

For the past two years, I have been working with my studio assistants on my archive. Lots of them have never been shown to the public nor printed in order to be sold. I find myself discovering moments that I'd forgotten and shoots that I like.

Just a Mistake?

I discovered last week that some of my photographs are on sale on Artsper through the Galerie Nicolas Hugo. It happens, the secondary market is very large and it is not easy to monitor all my works around the world. But here, there is something strange...

What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Photography?

This past Sunday I was part of a panel to discuss the general state of photography in Italy, organized by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Affairs (MIBACT). A part of the PhotoLux Festival in Lucca, the event was the 19th and final MIBACT meeting to evaluate this supposed state. [...]
For me the biggest problem is that there is no understanding of where we started, and so we cannot find a common denominator between a photojournalist and a food photographer, a “fine art” (I hate that term) photographer and medical documentary photography. There is no in-depth knowledge, and so everything exists in a messy melting pot. In order to overcome these divisions in photography, we must first accept that these divisions do indeed exist.
