Q6) Apart from food photographer, have you ever thought of becoming something else? MM: For the moment I’m totally focusing on this project and so I tell you no!

Q7) What is food for you being a food photographer?
MM: It is the raw material.It is fundamental and the heart of every project

Q8) Why only good photography?
MM: I ask so many times when I’m in the studio. Probably worshiping food and catering, I can capture what food wants to communicate with more ease. Also when confronting with the chefs about their dishes that I propose for the shutter I always ask for the ingredients and the procedure to try to enhance the most information that the dish wants to communicate.
