Cookies and milk are a combination that doesn’t need styling. They hit the child inside us and they wake up our feelings. I remember the day I took this picture. I saw the light falling beautifully on the table, the house smelled amazing from the fresh baked cookies... the rest was just pressed the cámara shutter.
Sunny days and today’s lunch... My husband has been craving this salad for about 2 weeks since he ate it on his last trip to Munich... This is my own version. I can say mission accomplished! Happy belly, happy heart, happy husband.

This photograph will inevitably remain in my memory as one of the strictly home-made jobs forced by the quarantine caused by Covid-19. The simplicity of this dish is as great as the conviviality it gives us while tasting it together with the people we love ... Best wishes to the peoples of the world, and to those who govern them, I ask them to draw lessons from this tragedy...
WHERE IS MY GIN TONIC?
how was this shot born? from a game between me and the bartender. I was in a famous cocktail bar in Siena, “THE WHITE DOG”, called to my friends (owner and bartender) to shoot the new drink list.
After finish the work, I asked for a gin tonic and the bartender didn't want to do it. So, I took the lemon, the knife and I screamed, joking naturally: “where is my gin tonic?” Now this image is officially in the drink list
Shot for Janice Wong in Singapore. Janice was named Asia's Best Dessert Chef (twice), her creations are unlike anything I had seen before or since.
She is a force of nature when it comes to dessert creations, was a pleasure to work with and quickly learned that I am as obsessive with crafting light as she is with her own craft. Which was a beautiful synergy!
This photo was a photo practice with my students to make a product shot with single elements like coffee.

This image of canned Apricots in sugar is from my isolation series. I noticed on the first day of our countries quarantine, a surreal frenzy at the local supermarket for canned goods. I started to wonder if I had missed some important information on the news. This started a chain reaction in me and I too started to buy canned food. Once at home, I started to laugh, because I normally don't buy canned food but also became worried since I am alone. What if I got sick? Suddenly this array of canned food became very important to me. It gave me a funny form of security. All my images in this series are a combination of both multiple scanned imageries and camera data. Some final images contain over 50 single images. My aim is to create images that display the uniqueness of each canned food item.
Trying to go out of my comfort zone that is a moody style and challenge myself using the Golden spiral as a composition technique, I shoot a series of the image using bright complementary colors as the key feature to stand out the food and only a few props.
