I am an Italian Fine Art & Street Photographer, born and raised in Rome, where I live. Author of awarded series Urban Melodies and Raindrop Blues, featured by the most important photo magazines. Graduated in 2009 in Disciplines of Arts and Cinema. My first exhibition was in 2010, since then my pictures were shown in several galleries, in Italy and abroad.
“The rain washes memories off the sidewalk of life”, Woody Allen said in an old movie. Raindrops, like in a blues song, fall with a repetitive but fascinating rhythm, awakening, as they were called in XVII century, the “blue demons”: a suffused sensation of melancholia. Raindrop Blues Project tries, through double exposures and street photography, to dip the viewer in a sort of dreamlike reality. The rain seems to fall on everyone, creating evocative images where every element – the street, the sky, the characters, the viewer – is involved in a romantic and, in the same time, melancholic feeling. Many subjects mysteriously appear as dark silhouettes, or have their faces hidden by colorful umbrellas. This, along with the raindrops and dark colors, evoke a sense of human isolation, a common feeling in large cities. As Bob Marley said, when it rains some “feel” the rain, others just get wet.
