I moved from Italy to the San Francisco bay area in 1981 and have resided in Nicasio for the past 27 years.
My focus in photography is to be fully present in the moment –to listen deeply, establishing rapport with the subject in the present moment, and resisting the tendency to impose preconceived ideas for the photograph. Rather than “taking” a photograph, I focus my attention and trust on developing a partnership with the subject. My responsibility in the partnership is to stay present and committed, listening respectfully and patiently for the image to speak, to reveal itself. The photograph emerges from this partnership, and from my acceptance of, and gratitude, for whatever the moment
