I professionally grew up as a fashion photographer. Every single photographer in Milan in the 90s was a fashion photographer.
So, I just followed the wave because I’ve always been very passionate about fashion and style and that was just my chance to show what I had in mind.
Well, when you are 13-15-17 in a country like Italy and you like fashion and style you just give a chance to everybody to have fun with you. They call you gay (even if you are not) and they judge you all the time. BUT that was my daily school against stupidity and ignorance. I learned how to never listen to other people judging and bullying and that helped me a lot in my career and in my life.
