I witnessed firsthand the change that Internet has brought to the world of photography.
The web, thanks to online sharing platforms, has allowed me to “exhibit” my shots to a stuggering number of viewers in a very short time (such is the case of flickr). In 2011 my photos were noticed by a professor from the Cleveland Institute Of Art who invited me to exhibit my works for the first time in New York, at a time when, even in my hometown, only a few of my friends knew about my passion. This was certainly a great incentive. My relationship with photography has gone from web and digital tools (the beginning of my journey) to the use of camera film, which is now my great love. I always carry my camera with me, I am always ready to capture who and what passes in front of my eyes.
This project tries to trace a path of personal change: from my first digital selfies to analogue photos, from solitude to sharing, from being on the streets to intimacy, from the inside to the outside.
