Artist Statement

Photography plays a crucial role in conservation efforts by capturing the beauty of the natural world and the threats it faces.

Through an irresistible attraction for the aesthetic and a captivating encounter with the emotion, I take advantage from both to reach awareness about Nature conservation.

Working from remote wilderness areas my pictures travel through the aesthetic and the emotion to awake and encourage a viewer more and more conscious of preserve and protect the fragile world around us. If my images are beautiful it is because nature is.

Human and animal emotions shake and dilute showing a vulnerability that we couldn’t see in the classic documentary on wildlife photography.

Impressive animals and animals that impress that soften or shudder. Animals whose habitat wobble from our lifestyle, and which need to be visible so that we act and preserve the ecosystems of the planet that we all inhabit.

In love with the African continent and committed to its conservation, I collaborate with associations as Vital Impacts, WWF, Remembering Wildlife, ForRangers, DSWT, Prints for Wildlife, Saving the Survivors, etc. which protect and preserve threatened species.

Photography leads us to Love and Love to Conservation
