Since teenage year, David (aka. Albert Mario) has been venturing overseas as he studies and lives away from his family. One lesson he learnt from his life adventure is the importance to cherish moments in life.
Having the same painting background, David drew inspiration from Henri Cartier-Bresson, a French humanist photographer who's considered as the master of candid photography, whom having been inspired by a photograph of Three Boys at Lake Tangayika, decided to stop painting and focus on photography as He said, "I suddenly realised that a photograph could fix eternity in an instant."
Nothing lasts forever in this world and time passed can never be repeated and yet those memories could be immortalised through pictures. It is to this belief that David embarked on a pursuit of capturing life moments, from the greatest to the smallest, for every little details are precious.
Moreover, being a believer and a friend of God, David also develops great passions for nature, beauty, culture, landscape and anything pure under the heaven for they are reflections of the true creativity of God the Creator. The name “Sturio Vera” itself is derived from an Italian words “Storia Vera” which means “true story”, that is David's mission to capture moments of life in the truest way - the way the Lord sees.
After completing his study of Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Law in Melbourne, Australia David decided to move permanently to Japan in order to capture the beauty of the land of the rising sun at all times. Follow his journey trough his lens on his Instagram or Facebook.
“OF ALL THE MEANS OF EXPRESSION, PHOTOGRAPHY IS THE ONLY ONE THAT FIXES FOREVER THE PRECISE AND TRANSITORY INSTANT. WE PHOTOGRAPHERS DEAL IN THINGS THAT ARE CONTINUALLY VANISHING, AND WHEN THEY HAVE VANISHED, THERE IS NO CONTRIVANCE ON EARTH THAT CAN MAKE THEM COME BACK AGAIN."
