decline and fall of the empire
the series the fall of the empire has been a subject that i have worked with for a long time.
this is not only a problem in New York but a problem in the world. Every government has to obligation to its citizens and inequality should not exist. Everyone has a right to food and shelter and not guns and war.
I was born in New York City and I have been living and working both in New York and Italy. I attended the Art Students League as a student of George Grosz, and the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, with Primo Conti. I continued my studies at NYU taking advantage of the master program at ICP where I discovered the art form of photography, giving a different direction to my work. Using subjects from daily life I challenge reality, where foreground and background become flat space.
