I took this serie of portrait for Italian singer songwriter Leo Pari. The photos are for the promotion of his latest album called "SPAZIO" (OUTER SPACE), an album that mixes Italian 70's pop with electronic music. I wanted to experiment with lights and colors to create a new atmosphere that could recall outer space and galaxies. I created these images with light painting technique, I was shooting in a totally dark environment with torch lights and different tools i made myself to shape light in different ways.
I was born in Rome in 1985. After a degree in art direction I moved to Barcellona. In 2006 I started to photograph documenting the new Italian independent music scene, and worked for many bands and artists becoming a photographic point of reference in the Italian rock scene. Back in Rome I started to work for various magazines portraying writers, directors, politicians and actors. I photograph for Vanity Fair Italia, Rolling Stone, Io Donna, L' Espresso among others. My work is represented by Contrasto.
