David Salvatori

Terrestrial and underwater photographer

I was born in Latina, a city near Rome, on January 23rd 1970, I have a university degree in Physics and and I am currently employed in the biggest company in the world producing devices for Internet connectivity.
I inherited from my parents a passion for Sciences, visual Arts and Nature; the Sea has always been present in the most important moments of my life, but only in recent years I began to practice water sports.
Scuba diving arrives by coincidence in 2006, when during a trip to Maldives I met an Italian scuba instructor, Silvia Miccoli. Silvia brought me to dive for the first time, giving me a striking key to the reading, the direct relationship with the water becomes soon a powerful channel of communication and introspection.
Today going underwater, being in the Sea, means to me becoming for a moment a part of the Sea itself, a small part of a whole which is constantly changing but at the same time in constant equilibrium. Now this equilibrium is part of me, and I wanted to dedicate this site to this alliance between Man and Nature.
I think the great diver Jacques Mayol wanted to express the same idea when he once said: “I have the Sea inside me. the Sea is me.” This is why I chose “ilmaresonoio” (meaning “the-sea-is-me”) as the name of my site.
Photography became, two years after start diving, the most suitable way to communicate this new phase of my life: I report my feelings through the shutter, documenting the various expressions of this equilibrium in different places and through different cultures.
