Personal Cat Carpet
DESCRIPTIONI could say that observing things around me through a sort of "viewfinder" has become a lifestyle, observing the things I have under my eyes every day and being able to be inspired by them to make them become a photograph or a painting it is a challenge and an incredible satisfaction. This is a shot of my cat lying on the carpet, the normal scene of my day but full of color.
AUTHORI do not consider myself a photographer, really, I am not. I use photography as a means of communication and many times not to say something to others but to remember something myself. Having a "frame" of your worldview as you know it now, as you saw it two, five or twenty years ago is something precious! Time passes and memories run and fade away, replaced by the new "frames" of everyday’s life. It is very important to have clear, definite awareness of one’s own life. It means having pillars on which to support my knowledge today, in the present. I never did the "photographer's job", weddings, village festivals ... I do not think I can do such a thing, I find it too difficult to make pictures that please others. I like to make photos to people on the street, even without being seen, then i show them a couple of photo and often i send them some photos by email. I really like to say that I started to "shoot" almost accidentally. The first shots that led me to think of photography as a means of communication, have been made with a poor quality cell phone, received as a gift from my friend. I started taking photos a bit 'more seriously after a friend of mine gave me a Canon 40D. For last four years i live in Tuscany (Italy), and In this moment i work like the audio - video technician.
