In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?
I love to observe nature. Every single process is something magical to me, and growing old, I feel more and more moved by it. Nature taught me to be patient and sensitive, trained my eyes to catch small changing in the light and in the shadow. This is what I aim to convey with my photography: the quiet, the calm, the small details the contain universes of life. Take a picture of a simple rock, or of a large landscape: it’s fascinating to think of how many things are happening there, that you cannot even see. There’s life everywere. And it’s magic.
What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?
I think that we are just a small part of something, that everything is connected and that it is wrong to consider human beings something separate ( and superior) to the rest of living beings. I try to be open minded, to observe and learn from nature.
