Why do you shoot analog?
It is more than aesthetic, it’s about the feeling, the waiting, the memory, the feeling of something real, I love when I have my archive in my hands….
What is the inspiration behind your work? Different one for each project?
Inspirations.. everything around me… really everything. I don’t slip my work in projects, I just give different name to the projects because I need to organized myself but in the end it is all only one.
These series are not over. They will accompany me until I can no longer imagine.
What is the significance of self portraits to you?
Sharing my own intimacy is sort of an obsession, an addiction. I need to see, observe and study myself and also let people do it too. I’m shooting myself because I only want to explore myself and my body until I’m not able to do it anymore.
You shoot lots of nudes. Do you think people are still shocked by nudity?
I shoot nudity because I like it, no idea if the people get shocked by nudes, or pubic hair… etc. I just enjoy the beauty, I prefer the beauty of skin to a shirt, to be really honest I never made any nude photo thinking ” let’s be provocative and shock all the people”. I just don’t know how to do it in another way.
Is there something you would never agree to photograph?
I would never never shoot anything that would have to do with animals dying or something like that…
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m working on several projects at the same time, and all very different, at this moment I’m working on a new book (it’s coming in the middle of June). Also, I collaborate with some brands, magazines and musicians. In the beginning of this year I’m starting work on a new project about my impressions of the girls in Tokyo, I went there 3 times to shoot. It’s the beginning of a project it’s only the skeleton but let’s see what it becomes.
