My practice of photography is closely related to walking, or rather to wandering. This is how I discover and experience the city and the urban landscapes. My MALTA series is an example of my approach. I walk the roads of Malta, in the streets of Valletta, Victoria … I do not plan anything. I rely on my wanderings. My steps build my ride. Poetry is everywhere and in everything. It comes from the banal thats attracts me inexorably. Human presence is immanent at these vacant places.
An exhibition of this series took place in Cividale del Friuli, Italy, in early 2020, as part of Trieste Photo Days 2019 – international urban photography festival.
