Statement


I was born in the south of Italy, Puglia.
I move to London in 1993 where I start My journey with photography.

Paolo on photography.
A photograph captures a moment; the camera records the reality of an instant that has passed. It does not interpret that moment, just captures it in its truest form.
My aim as a photographer has always been to communicate the feelings I am experiencing in that moment.
Any one who views a picture, experiences that image in their own way, relates it to their own experiences, their own life, needs and desires and interprets that moment in a personal way.
To create an image which strikes at the heart of the viewer, an image that can over come their personal interpretations, where the viewer can feel my emotions when capturing the image and in some way connect to me.
To create a moment through a photograph, when I can communicate to someone else.
Photography has taken me on a journey to reach that place, a moment, an image that connects the photographer and the viewer.
It is a life long process, a journey to reach that place.
Not every image will take you there, but sometimes the moment is reached.
The camera is a remarkable instrument, a companion who helps me express my feelings, my joy, my emotions.
The camera helps me to communicate with the world, through the lens I experience the world and through a photograph the outside world can understand me.

Paolo was recently selected to take part at the 54th Venice Biennale 2011
