"Encerrados is a project, a 10-year history that has led me on a long journey to the prisons of all South American countries, 74 prisons, from Columbia and Venezuela up to Argentina and Chile, countries of a continent in many ways still unknown. I chose to speek about South America through the prisons because they are a reflection of a culture in the good and bad and they represent the difficulties and hopes of a people"

Why fund it?

The collection will serve on the book whose printing and distribution will be handled by the publishing house Silvana Editoriale Spa.

"The most pernicious aspect of procrastination is that it can
become a habit. We don’t just put off our lives today; we put
them off till our deathbed.
Never forget: This very moment, we can change our lives.
There never was a moment, and never will be, when we are
without the power to alter our destiny. This second, we can
turn the tables on Resistance.
This second, we can sit down and do our work."

from the nice The War of Art by Steven Pressfield

Franz Kafka is considered one of the most creative and influential writers of the 20th century, but he actually spent most of his time working as a lawyer for the Workers Accident Insurance Institute. How did Kafka produce such fantastic creative works while holding down his day job? By sticking to a strict schedule.

Fine Art Photography
Introduction
I was born in Genoa, Italy. As a young boy, one of my first passions was photography, which my uncle helped cultivate. Soon other interests, including music, typography, printing, antique books and graphic design, pointed my way into the world of work. In the last ten years has photography, and black & white photography in particular, won me over again. My work was featured on Lenswork magazine #88 and #98.

I would like my photographs to express the sense of order, peace and beauty inherent in everything around me, creating images that can provide a pleasant sense of contentment which reaches the soul of the beholder and lifts him or her spiritually, morally and intellectually. Sometimes I use the extraordinary scenery offered by nature, sometimes I prefer the grace of art created by man, whether in the form of a statue, painting, or architecture. 

The choice of subjects is dictated by the emotion that they evoke in me, the geometric composition that they occupy in space and by the quality of light that surrounds them. 

I pause long enough to get in tune with the subject mentally recreating the image of what I want to shoot. I prefer natural light, the natural light of an environment — especially indoors, generous with contrasts of light and shadow, creating magical effects and extraordinary visual sensations — even if this sometimes means not quantifying the waiting time for one shot, waiting for the right light that often lasts only brief moments. 

I am certain that I have acquired this method out of the need to escape the hustle and bustle of every day that sets the pace of every action way too fast for a reflective mind. I am looking for more simplicity, more balance and more harmony. 

With the passage of time, achieving greater awareness, I increasingly feel the desire to tell stories through images, to take on more intricate projects for which research and planning is necessary. 

Taking care of the prints of my photographs myself is the most practical aspect of attention and care, but it is also what gives me greater satisfaction and provides a sense of completion of a job that fulfils my needs. For this purpose it is necessary to apply rigorous discipline and a good dose of patience. 

I find inspiration in the art of Josef Sudek, André Kertész, Henri Cartier-Bresson, masters of black and white, huge poets who with their images have been able to inspire artists and enchant the eyes of countless people.
