I was uncertain ( you guess!): how do I describe myself?
The ingredients are the primary elements: heart, water, and light. So here I go: a geologist, chasing and taming the waters of this world, in love with light. Add fire, the passion (yes, I'm Italian :-) for images... and you get something interesting.
Welcome to Nomadfoto.
Bangkok, Amman... NYC
I started taking pictures in 1985, ( b&w film and darkroom) refining the art since. Permanently on the move, I visited all 5 continents capturing the world and its people. I have worked and often lived, in deserts, forests, oceans, and mountains. I have worked to improve lives, and I always felt that there was a deeper story to be told.
The logo is part of this history. The original image pictures a Kochi nomad, in northern Afghanistan. People, camels. Dust. Nothing else. Are we only defined by what we have? Or by who we are? Is "where is home?" the right question? Or should it be " WHAT is home?"
Well, I guess this is me: passion and rationality. I try to make sense of the life behind the scenery, and tell the story of both.
Nomadfoto was born in 2012 in Bangkok. Now It's in NY, the perfect place, in a way: the entire world in five boroughs. Still travelling, still discovering. Now I'm exploring people more than places: it's incredible the stories this city can tell.
You're welcome If you want to join this storytelling ride: it is a beautiful journey.
