Since I was a young boy, I have been fascinated by two terms: nature and women – and all my earlier life I tried to pour this adoration into music (and I still do): I became a musician.

At the age of about 14, I happened to meet another great female: the city of Venice.

Then – almost five decades later, I realized that I had a great teacher in photography when I was young (who was my uncle) and so I started again taking pictures – nowadays with modern digital equipment – to express my admiration and worship for the three big femininities in my life: nature, women & Venice.
