As a child I dreamt of Africa, of her landscapes, her wildlife. Many years later, in 2006, I got a professional assignment in Tanzania for 4 years and had the privilege to witness incredible nature. It’s in Tanzania where photography took on its full meaning.
I got my first camera from my parents at the age 11. Since that time I never stopped taking photos to capture the beauty of nature.
Photography means writing, drawing with the light. It’s also for me a way of trying to get the atmosphere and emotions that sometimes are not seen with the naked eye.
During the last 30 years, I have been fortunate to live in different parts of the world: North America, Middle-East, Northern Europe and Northern Africa. During my recent time in Northern Africa, I tried to photograph the captivating beauty of the Sahara desert, an ocean of sand where shadows and light draw amazing landscapes.
Nowadays a lot of wild species are in danger because of lost habitat, climate change and poaching. For these reasons I have decided to dedicate my photography to the cause of preservation so the future generations might admire the incredible wildlife on our beautiful planet.
