Giorgio’s self-portraiture was born from a desire to give life to his thoughts. He comments, ‘they could not be closed – then I discovered photography’.

He describes his work as ‘messy, like me,’ and explains that he learned the skills behind his craft through continuous research, with tutorials on the internet being a great help.

Giorgio’s influences include work by René Magritte (1898–1967), Jim Warren (b.1949) and photographer Kyle Thompson (b.1992).

Through this self-portraiture we are catapulted into a dreamworld of the artist’s creation, and nothing is ever quite what it initially appears. This restless and playful photography is certainly worth your exploration.
