I started in 94/95 at school, but it was not serious, just because it was school. I started shooting in the yards around 97, it was a very good time in Italy like a golden age for graffiti train. I started to really love what i did in the night time with my camera, so I started showing photos to some different graffiti writers, and the reaction was good and positive, so I realized I could do a work never done before. In that time you couldn't see many action photos like my style, now you can see more because digital cameras make all things so easy.. but many years ago it was not the same.
In my work i never use photoshop, my publications are all film photography, not digital, all negative.
Now with the digital era it is very important what you do with photoshop. A new era has started for all photographers, so we will see in the future what's goin on, it's a big revolution for the photo world.
I think this is the best movement in the world. It is very interesting what writers can do for writing a name on a train, they spend so many time and it is against laws... so is very interesting to document.
It was a hard work very hard to do, nobody knew me so I have to give to someone my credibility to use money in my job, so it was very hard, now the publisher is very happy because there are a lot interest about the book. But in the begining it was not obvious for him to publish such a book. But you know it is a normal way, everybody would act the same..
hehehe..., just holidays with my girlfriend, I want to start new things. I have projects for the future but I don't want to say much, it's a bit early to talk about it.
I willl have some expos in this year to do, mainly to promote the book.
