===========

The simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event…..In photography, the smallest thing can be a great subject. The littlest human detail can become a leitmotif.
-Henri Cartier-Bresson

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY……..A little bit about me……….

I’m a photographer & a writer. I specialise mainly in fashion and creative portraiture, but I like to dip into other photography forms and styles occasionally. I also work as a layout designer at a photography studio in Melbourne.

I have photographed in Europe, Australia and Asia. I have worked at Fashion Weeks and Festivals, collaborated with A-grade designers, models and agencies, shot at high end events & venues, as well as worked for magazines and newspapers. I have helped to visually translate the visions of many people into images that are timeless and elegant, and sometimes even a little raw, but that always, always tell a story.

I am Italian – my origins are from Catania in Sicily, but after marrying a roman, Rome became my adopted city and love affair. However, I am currently based in Melbourne (Australia) where my husband and I also run an Italian-style café.

My Mission:
-To experience as much as I can.
-To push boundaries.
-To learn about and absorb everything.
-To master and perfect that which is important to me.
-To find harmony & balance within myself.
-To affect people and be affected by them in turn.
-To nourish my academic and curious mind.
-To enrich and encourage my energetic and creative spirit.
-To walk beside my son as he grows into a man.
-To fall in love with Life over and over again.
-To lose my mind to the craziness every so often.
-To Love & to be Loved.
-To write & to take photographs until the end of this life, and maybe into the next one.
