‘I’m 27 years old and I live in Italy, in Abruzzo in a small town called Raiano. All of my photos are taken with my phone as I don’t have a professional camera yet. I took this photo of the waxing moon from my town with my Samsung Galaxy S9 and Zenith Binoculars 10×15.

I love photographing everything, from mountain landscapes to sunset with its thousand colors. The narrow and characteristic alleys of the small towns of my region Abruzzo and the fantastic sea. Macro photography with flowers and insects. And then there’s my passion for the Moon, which I manage to photograph thanks to the Digiscoping technique.’
