Simone is an enthusiast travel photographer.
His interest in photography has grown constantly throughout the years and has developed into a true passion in recent times. Thanks to his numerous travel opportunities, both for business and pleasure, Simone has been able to discover the beauty of this form of art in places as remote as Syria, India, Mozambique and Korea.
Simone spent half of his life away from his native Italy, developing a truly international mindset and a deep interest in cultural diversity. He has lived in countries as far apart as USA, Argentina, Portugal, Hong Kong and UAE, and photography has accompanied each one of his travelling experiences.
Recently he has returned to London, following 2 years in the Middle East.
Simone’s work revolves around three main dimensions:
mOvement: nothing in life is still, everything is constantly changing. Images freeze movement in time, although delivering a clear message that the very same moment is gone forever.
People: we are so many, so diverse, but at the same time have so much in common. Travelling is a way to discover what we share and what makes us unique, photography is a way to capture it all.
placEs: nature and mankind have sometimes worked together to surround us with breathtaking wonders. It would be a pity not to explore the surprising beauty of our world.
He regularly participates in international competitions and has been a finalist in the Travel Photographer of the Year 2009 and Sony World Photography 2010 competitions.
He has been invited to participate with some of his portraits to a charity book project: “Children - moments of humanity”. All funds raised throughout the project will be used to subsidize children help/care/support organizations.
Simone has exhibited both in East and West London and details of his past and upcoming exhibitions can be found in the "Exhibitions" link of his website. An exhibition on his recent work in Yemen has been held in Dubai at the Total Arts gallery in November.
As part of his charitable works, Simone has recently returned from South Africa, where he was part of a team of 10 individuals building a house for GGA, a charitable organization helping children who's families have been devasted by HIV/AIDS.
