Escape to Another World.

For me photography is another world, something different, a place where you can go daily and dream as much as you want.
You don’t have boundaries there, everything is up to you and your imagination.
Before I take photos, I imagine how the image should look like.
I think of the situation I would like to create. I always write my ideas on paper, sometimes I draw what I want to create with that idea.

When I look back at the moment the picture was taken, I wish I was able to relive the emotions I felt back then.
I also love to travel and discover new places. I always try to find a connection between models and nature.
I love telling stories with my images, I want to inspire people. I hope you’ll join my journey.

The Magical Tale of Carezza Rainbow Lake.

Gorgeous mountain lakes may be a dime a dozen, but how many can boast brilliant waters whose colours are the result of a lovesick sorcerer and drowned rainbows?
According to the traditions of the Ladin people in Italy’s South Tyrol region, once upon a time, a beautiful water nymph called the pristine waters of Lake Carezza, at the foot of the Dolomites, home.
One day, while braiding her hair on its shores, the sorcerer Masaré was overcome by the sound of the nymph as she softly sang to herself.
Head over heels in love, he sought the help of a witch to make the nymph his own.
An elaborate plan involving a disguise as a jewellery salesman, and casting a rainbow across the lake ensued.
Unfortunately for the sorcerer, he forgot to wear his salesman outfit and was discovered by the nymph even as she marvelled at his creation.
Evading his trap, she hasn’t been seen since. Completely distraught at his own foolishness, Masaré smashed the rainbow into a million pieces, which fell into the lake’s waters below.
Their fractured magnificence continues to radiate through its crystalline waters to this day, and account for Carezza’s other name: Lec de ergobando, or “Rainbow Lake.”
