All of my photographs come from my personal life, my portraits from my experiences and the one of my family (Catholicism, prison, horses, Sardinian shepherds, gypsies, etc), and then the landscapes and my need to be only with myself, to walk, to be in depopulated places, to be back in Sardinia, “Asinara” my last work.
