1. How did your interest in photography begin?

When I was about 20 I read 'Photography' by Eric de Mare'
It was mainly about black and white. And I remember him saying that it  was easier than colour (something I still believe). Then my  family took priority so I only dabbled. I started again seriously when I was 64.

2. What genres of photography are you more interested in?

Currently:

 

Black and white 

Abstracts 

Strong images 

Anything that I like 

Created not taken (so no such thing as 'cheating'.) 

 

But, in general, when I learn how to do something I get fed up with it and want to move on to something else.

3. What has been the highlight of your photographic journey?

In November 2018 I gave a presentation (in Italian) on my work to the FOTO 16 Club of Suzzara, Italy:
