A 1940 Zeiss Ikon folding camera, found at his grandparent's place, started Sandro's infatuation with photography in early childhood. Creating his first pictures with that fascinating 'toy' was an outstanding experience and one, which led to his taking up photography as his profession a few years later.
Born and educated in Rome, Sandro has been involved for several years in the production of images in the advertising and arts spheres in Italy and in Australia where he settled in 1989.
Sandro won his first award at the "International Festival of Cinema" in Salerno, Italy with a short movie in S8 at the age of nineteen. Other awards and exhibitions in Europe and USA soon followed this. Also involved in lecturing and designing courses in professional photography, Sandro's work has been published in leading magazines and has illustrated several postcard , calendars and books.
"In my photography the colour is the element that gives more sensuality to my images than a human body or a situation. Any colour scratches in depth the conscience engraving scars of a perfect symbolic concept that will stay there forever. It is like composing a puzzle where any colour is a fragment of our conscience.
The human presence, as form of subject or as spectator of my images is the element that links the viewer to the reality.
A dense atmosphere of light and colour places the image in a space where reality and imagination live together satisfying each other and giving birth to the essence of life: 'Emotions'."
