Photographer and mountaineer, with a degree in Forestry and Environmental Sciences, born and raised at the foot of the Pale di San Martino, he managed to combine his passion for the mountains with photography. More than a photographer, he prefers to define himself as a mountain man who lives his own mountain and as such has a deep respect for it.
“For many people the mountain is simply an element of the landscape, something beautiful, to be admired from home or during their holidays, for others it is a mass of rock. For me, however, the mountain is everything. When I am on a peak or even simply in a forest, I feel alive and an integral part of everything around me. I love the mountain and I have a feeling of respect towards it that comes from the desire to know its deeper aspects, its rhythms and its will. I concretize my personal vision by getting up in the middle of the night to walk for several hours and reach little-frequented places. Other times I reach the top of a mountain at sunset and then stay there to sleep. Most of the time I’m always alone in these photographic outings.”
