365(+1) Days of NEX-7 (ebook)
ABOUT THE PROJECT
It was in 2009 when I first encountered a 365 project, and felt admiration for the author and desire to start my own. With a 365 the photographer publicly takes the responsibility of taking and publishing one shot each of the 365 days which make a year. It's a tough project, which forces consistency and dedication.
I wanted my 365 to be like a diary of my life and my ideas, so I needed a camera to always bring along, wherever I had to go, whatever I had to do. It wasn't easy since quality and compactness are not exactly synonymous in digital photography.
Finally, for my thirty-third birthday I bought myself a Sony NEX-7, a great little professional system. With it I started my own 365 project (actually a 365+1 project, since 2012 is a leap year), which will end when I turn 34. I made the rule that every picture in the project must be taken with the NEX-7. Each photo gets published along with a short story on the project blog:

ABOUT THIS BOOK
This book collects the pictures from the fourth and last quarter of the project. I made a series of books out of the project to share an off-line, easy to consult, professionally looking version of the blog. All the books are offered both in their digital and printed version. The digital file are free to download, while by buying the printed version you'll be supporting my work with a small donation.
Thank you very much for your interest, I hope you'll enjoy both the photos and the reading.
My photography is a lot about sudden inspiration and improvisation. Several are the "dreamers", like David Lynch, David Cronenberg, and Federico Fellini, which, with their ability to transmit the distinct and uncomfortable feeling of not being really awake, have affected my view of the world. Photography to me is a powerful tool for re-viewing the very concept of reality in a metaphysical and surrealistic key.
