My beloved uncle with whom I lived, was a very good chef. Among other foods, he was very good at cooking fish. One day he came home with a bag full of sardines and I wanted to document step by step the culinary processing.

Born in Palermo in 1974, I have been having a natural flair for the shot since he was 10, using a Polaroid 1000 model borrowed from my brother. A few years later the first experiments in street photography gave way to the glossy world of glamour. The real revolution begins owning a Kodak's bridge camera with a 24x zoom which trained my eye to look for the hidden details of things, as in an imaginary game in which there is always something hidden from reality that may tickle the wonder of surprise.
