“Our approach to architectural/landscape photography and video stems from an intense dialogue with the project, its author and the place that hosts them.
We think that every architecture, every place and every personality have different features and peculiarities that must be understood in depth in order to be told and enhanced in the best way.
Our critical approach, rather than impose itself, is guided by these factors”.
