"What prompts me to take a picture? How to Medardo Rosso, for me, photography is an extension of my work, it expresses the exact way in which it is to be seen, under which light and atmosphere in which the soul must be seen. It expresses my point of view, as the opera was created. Photography is the witness who says there, I saw, this is important, in a world of silence and indifference, testifies the existence of the artistic work, the work done in the Atelier. The photograph testifies l'Atelier as a place of truth. By extension, for me, every shoot, witnesses my point of view, and, says, this thing must be viewed with caution, it is important at all, because it is important for me. Use an old Hasselblad film and candid natural light, meditative shots for a long time, I like to work in this way, just so soul emerges on the surface and can be removed so heard. I'm not a photographer, I am an artist who also uses the camera as a tool."
