If you could own one work of art what would it be?

An artwork of Maurizio Cattelan, it’s not important which one.

How would you describe your style?

I think to be a “not” photographer in the usual sense of the term, but an artist who uses the photography as a painter uses a brush or as a writer uses the word. Essentially, I think I am a conceptual artist who uses photography.

It was not easy to make others understand my art. Sometimes I have been considered as questionable technical photographer. Sometimes a photographer monothematic …The truth is that I do not care about the result and aesthetics of my work. I simply capture fragments of reality and I emphasize them up to the state of mind where I am. The results are my artworks with their imperfections, their misunderstandings, their incompleteness: our life. I never conceived shooting as a technical exercise where everything was balanced in search of perfection. Simply it was not my purpose. Conversely I found in imperfection and movement the key to my expression.
