Italian, born in 1967. In 1991 I moved to London 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.
My lond 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.
