WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?

My journey began when I decided to leave Sicily to move to Florence, to study, work and open myself to new opportunities. This is how ookeeii was born, my alter ego, my vision, the way to convey the feelings and ideas trapped inside Andrea and pull them out through a camera. Photography has always found a place in my life becoming my tool to investigate, recognize and discover trends in the world we live in, challenging the conventional and the ordinary, to the point of pushing the boundaries to create a world where the mind is free and where anything is possible. Throughout my journey, I tried to figure out what kind of person I wanted to become and through my education and experiences, I arrived at fashion photography which I realized was my stepping stone.

WHAT ARE YOUR SOURCES OF INSPIRATION?

There are so many things that inspire me, music is the main source, the one that makes me feel good and the one that makes me focus on what I want to do. 

I am inspired by people, their bodies, their moods. I am inspired by the light, the sound of rain, a new city, the colors of nature. All this mix, mental or not, is carried in my photos: full of colors or without colors, contrasted or not contrasted, clean or chaotic; in short, a real mix.

WHAT ARE YOUR LUCIDITY PILLS?
