GS: Could you say why many of your pictures involve sky disproportionately to any land in the frame? And, your pictures show a fascination with clouds and what they’re doing.
DM: I love sky and all that it represents: poetry and infinity.
GS: You have lots of road and night shots that blur lights and create different atmospheres. What interests you in these depictions?
DM: I think that behind what we perceive there is much more. I love the contrasts and the normality, the day and the night.
GS: Do you digitally alter your photographs?
DM: Sure, when creating a picture, it’s difficult to stop after the first draft, as it would remain only a frame. Elaboration determines personal art.
GS: When did you discover photography, and have your subjects changed over time?
DM: Previously I painted and more recently discovered my passion for photography. My approach is quite random—the images ask me to be captured, I don’t decide them.
GS: Has the work of other photographers or artists influenced you?
DM: Everything comes from Masters: Jackson Pollock, Tonino Gottarelli, Enrico Castellani, Alberto Burri...
