After several times being asked the question “Why do you take photos?” I started to reflect and analyze the path which brought me to this point.

I came up with a couple of possible explanations, or let’s say key points, but I am pretty sure the roots belong to the memories connected to my family. The presence of the photographic camera hanging on my father’s shoulder while documenting holidays or weekends’ trips, the time spent together in the living room sitted on the carpet, moving heavy stacks of photo albums browsing through moments printed on paper or all the frames hanging on the wall, like having a private gallery, full of questions and with some answers.

It’s like I was always indirectly pushed to document myself through encyclopedias, visual or written ones, where I was able to find a way to travel with imagination and through which I developed a curiosity that I’m still using and translating while taking photos.

The main focus of the series is the importance of the object and the medium of photography in the private environment but it aspires also to be a subjective mental analysis on the meaning of “home” and how some images become fundations of our visual vocabulary.
