"The days start to get longer: yet another minute of light for your films, yet another minute of light for me to look at your eyes."

"My skin is so strange, I have always left it free from tattoos, piercings, bracelets and watches. Now I wear a ring, a symbol of our love. If I forget working gloves or get covered with sawdust, your love will continue to shine on this dirty or chapped hand.”

"I translated Vitruvius from Latin.

 I studied Leonardo and all the Old masters. 

I set up exhibitions, I built frames, I carried sculptures. 

I worked for art in the country which is Art by definition. 

Now I am on the other side. I became Art myself.”

“To pose for you is an honor, for you who made me beautiful”.

“This decrepit, but lively skin is like the old camera case: its condition and attractiveness do not affect the beauty of the photo".

“And so I began to let myself be photographed, to take care of some details, to discover the taste for beauty. I did not care about my hands before, the important thing is that they were able to do. Then I realised that my hands were beautiful because they can create. And through my skin, the Beautiful has taken all over me".

Paolo is the most beautiful man in my life. Paolo has eczema. In the beginning it scared me. With the help of my photo camera I started to study his skin and to get used to it. Paolo became more and more beautiful with each shot - beautiful for my camera and for me. On the photos - like on the paintings - any skin problems vanished: when something appears on canvas, it becomes beautiful automatically. I am thinking of the Italian Renaissance portraits where the ideal and the real go together in harmony, and physical imperfections become attractive. By using a Renaissance frame I sublime Paolo and transform his skin. Everything that is captured by the camera becomes beautiful.
