Where are you from? Where do you live?
Iʼm italian…born in Napoli but living in Torino that is my home since 2007 (didnʼt actually realize how long Iʼve been living here till this question…).
How old are you?
almost 24, but in this moment I actually feel like I’m 15 again..
How do you pay your bills? Are you working as a professional photographer?
I’ve started working as a professional photographer before finishing my school, itʼs more than three years now, but to be honest must say that with two rents (my flat and my studio), all the bills to pay and my travel addiction I have always to do extra jobs…but itʼs ok with me, life would be so boring having nothing to do all day :)
What cameras do you use?
Mostly my canon 5d mkII to take pictures and shoot videos; for my personal stuff and my happy memories an old yashica, a polaroid and a canon straight from the 80ʼs.
Any photographer or artist inspiring you?
Everything constantly inspires me, mostly people and music, but talking about photographers maybe the ones I admire the most at the moment are Ryan McGinley, Wayne Levin and Hedi Slimane.
What/who do you enjoy to shoot the most?
I love shooting shy and sincere people, those kind of people that make you blush every time they smile or stare at you.
Do you believe in god?
No, but Iʼm working on believing in me a bit more every day.
What do you drink on a night out?
Mostly long island iced tea (if I trust the bartender) and beer
Do you like dancing?
When I really love the music I basically canʼt stop my self from moving. Donʼt know if it means I like dancing, but I do dance :)
Whatʼs your favorite first name?
Matilde, thatʼs my grannyʼs name.
Are you a fashion addicted?
I like the idea of fashion, but I donʼt consider my self addicted to it; when I have to dress up I usually peak some random clothes from my bed or the chair next to it without paying much of attention… but I love buying clothes and vintage bags in flea markets.
Whatʼs your favorite tv series?
Wow, thatʼs an hard question ʻcause I watch like twenty different tv series at the same time… probably my favorite one of all the time is Twin Peaks, but the one Iʼm loving at the moment is definitely Fringe.
Recommend us a book.
Same problem as the question before, Iʼm a book addicted… maybe one everyone should read is “Tomorrow in the battle think of me” by Javier Marías, I read it like ten times in the last four years…
Whatʼs the country of your dreams?
Wherever I feel home…
Have you ever been to Iceland?
Never, but Iʼd love to go there…I felt in love with that country after watching “HEIMA”, a dvd by Sigur Ros.
What song would you choose for a slideshow of your work?
mmm, everything by James Blake.
Ask yourself a question. Tell me your answer (like Marzullo does)
Where will I be in a year from now?
No idea, thanks god.
