This is a typical example of a creative photo. One of the keywords in my work is "experimentation." I love playing with different perspectives, contrasts, and objects I find in various locations to use them as compositional elements in my shots.

I captured this shot during a wedding in Volterra, Tuscany. The photo was taken on the stairs of the City Hall immediately after the civil ceremony. I noticed the particular play of light and shadows that was created on the wall and I decided to use it for a creative portrait. The choice of black and white was almost obligatory: when I have strong contrasts, this choice allows me to "amplify" them.
