I can't find peace and I don't have to make war
and I fear, and I hope; and I burn, and I am an ice;
and I fly above the sky, and I lie on the ground;
and I hold nothing, and I embrace the whole world.

Flowers and Poetry

Poets celebrate life, nature and its processes.

I am attracted to flowers, their perfection, their beauty and their transience.

Photographing them gives me serenity and allows me to observe them, covering a lot about the greatness and creativity of nature.

I love poetry in the same way, this obsolete art for some, captures me and drags me into the greatness of life.

I started reading poetry many years ago and put myself in the studio to photograph a flower, first on the poems of Emily Dickinson then those of Whitman, Ungaretti, Dante, Leopardi, Pascoli Neruda and all the poets I have read and still read, ancient and contemporary.

An exercise in beauty and an education in life.

A lightbox, two studio flashes and flowers.

Impermanence, passion, poetry and life.

As poets' poems often exist in different versions, so it is for my images, both in formats and in post-productions.


This work was used in a marketing operation by Lavanderia industriali Senese, in Siena.

For Christmas 2006 they wanted to give limited edition fine art prints to their customers, in various formats.
