Lands of Tuscany: the Serchio Valley

“Between the wild and bristling peaks of the Apuan Alps and the soft forms of
the Apennines lies a valley watered by a river, the Serchio, that is impetuous and
playful at its source, placid and meandering in its journey towards the sea”.

Alessandro Puccinelli
I was born in 1969 and my earliest professional experience dates back to 1993 when I moved to Australia, where I worked within the
framework of advertising photography. In 2001, my first work “Quotidiano” won the Polaroid International Awards. Since then I have decided
to focus on the Ocean as the main subject of my work, using a more “loose and free” style. The Sea and its Waves, described by Jack
London as “the knights of the infinite sea army” bear simplicity, elegance, power and freedom. I have found again these virtues by walking
in the woods of these mountains during the making of this book.
