Italian born, I moved to London in 1991 where I am still based.
After studying in the 1980s, I decided to travel the world. My first journey was from Milan to Cape North, a trip that led me to my first experience with photography, but it was only many years later when I moved to London that the passion for photography really surfaced.
Then I studied photography and worked as a trainee in a photographic studio.
Feeling that I needed more education, I went on to attend a photojournalism course at Hamlet College.
As a freelance photographer since1999, I have focused mainly on social documentary, but I have also become increasingly interested in portraiture.
In 1999/2000 I embarked upon a major project. I travelled along the Pan-American Highway from Mexico to Tierra del Fuego, a journey where I learned how to approach, tease, praise and look after photographic human subjects.
For almost 20 years, I have been photographing the world around me and my work has appears in the pages of European and international magazines such as : World Street Journal (Europe) The Guardian (UK), Le Monde (FR), El Pais (SP), Magazine The Times (UK), Sunday Times (UK), Economist Intelligent life (UK), Rider’s Digest (UK), La Republica Di delle Donne (Italy), among others.
My long term project is a work in Brazil, a story on the “Awa-Guaja,” the last and only nomad tribe that has been discovered in the Brazilian Amazon.
