Luca d’Agostino www.lucadagostino.it
He takes pictures. He sleeps, sleeps a lot, in San Giorgio di Nogaro (Udine – Italy). He works, especially in the night, where he can and where other call him to work. Don’t call him in the morning, the morning is holy, probably he doesn’t answer. Don’t call him in the night, the night is profane, he’s working. He has a rare BB’s syndrome: he reads e-mails in real time, more or less. Usually he answers to anybody in real time, more or less. If he doesn’t answer, or he’s sleeping, or he’s working. If he doesn’t answer, he doesn’t want to answer, maybe he loves you.
