I live in Canada where I immigrated many years ago from Sao Paulo, Brazil. First son of an Italian immigrant family, I took my first picture at age nine with an Ansco box camera, a Christmas present from Grandpa, and never stopped since. I still have one of the prints of that first roll of 120, showing good portion of Grandma and Grandpa heads. The passion of capturing light and shade into images was then born, and the need to learn and experiment in this field has been my drive until today.

The desire of artistic expression and to capture the beauty of a moment, otherwise lost forever, is now as alive as it was may years ago, when the boy marvelled with the possibilities of that incredible box.

Now, the digital era is providing the means to show some of my work.

This is the work of a humble, mostly self taught, photographer who never stopped to learn about the art of photography and has secretly dedicated good part of his life to it.
