…Dance is thought made visible…
Certainly dancers are the most fascinating artists to photograph. I have a real passion for ballet and for movement. The anatomy of a dancer is a sculptural perfection, the entire body, every muscle, every movement becomes a poetry, but hiding an immense work and physical efforts often escaping the eye of the public. I had the opportunity to work regularly with great dancers, often we spend hours working together that I developed a profound understanding of movement, but also about the dancers themselves. This created a particular intimacy with the dancers I photographed, being able to photograph dancers beyond their movements…in fact those are stolen portraits taken before, in between or after work.
The presented photographs are taken from several photo and video projects.

THE SANMARTINO CASE with Kristina and Sade Alleyne. Inspired by the Napolitan 18th century sculptor Giuseppe Sanmartino (1720-1793) author of the Cristo Velato exibited in Sansevero Chapel in Naples. A statue comes to life and transforms into a different shape, it is about transformation and continuity in movement.
