Born 1976 – Perugia Italy
“When I was a child, for my communion, my aunt gave me a small camera”, My love for photography starts here.
I am a completely self-taught photographer, my initial school was a magazine of photographic technique and some fashion magazines I loved to keep the shots that I considered closer to my sensitivity.
I worked for six years as a photographic printer, this helped me to understand many aspects of photography and how important it is to print, as a pictures can be reinterpreted after shooting, Ansel Adams said: the negative is like a score musical, but the print is changeable in its performances.
Today I am divided by love and work between Italy and France and I often travel for work and try to discover new stories.
I have worked in some countries like Cambodia, Cuba, Haiti.
In Cambodia I made a photographic work on S21 and the victims of the genocide performed by the Khmer Rouge commanded by Pol Pot, this led to the realization of a book and a photographic exhibition held at the Pam in Naples thanks to the interest of the photographer Nicolas Pascarel and of FotoAsia.
I love to create photographic stories of simple people and everyday life is where I find myself, I prefer to always act with discretion, I do not want my subjects to be influenced by my presence, sometimes I leave them to create the appropriate moment, even if grasp the right moment is not always simple. I’m not looking for aesthetics but above all for the authenticity of the moment. I often think that every story and every journey leads me to a real spiritual growth, behind each person you find a world that can bring you new emotions and reflections.
I am also a matrimonialist photographer (www.arcangeliphotowedding.com) and in the summer I often find myself in Italy to realize wedding photography, even if for some years I started to realize services also in France and Spain.
