I was born in nord-est Italy. With my studies in Geography and my passion for nature and worldwide different cultures, I’ve been traveling the world for years studying the interrelationship between people and environment. Promoting a sustainable tourism with a low environmental impact, I’ve long worked in Indian Sub-Continent, South East Asia and in the most isolated corners of the planet. Through on-site ethnological discoveries, photographs, lectures and written words, I’ve always tried to make people better understand how is possible to acquire awareness about our fragile world, avoiding uncontrolled mass tourism which inevitably leads to destruction of natural habitats and cultural treasures. Award winning photographer, my camera has always been my best notebook knowing that photography is linked to research and it’s one of the best means to better understand the changing world around us. Documentary and street photography, my essential subject is social life, focusing mostly in ordinary life, cultural stories and contemporary issues, always attracted by isolated places and people out of the spotlight. My special passion for intimacy and details led me to develop portraiture as one of preferred means to interact with people and better understand the human condition. Wandering the planet including it’s remote places, I’ve always been fascinated by the profound simplicity and strength with which many people, especially women and children, face life. In a world submerged by conflicts, I try to document the beauty and delicacy we can still find out there. In 2016 my first pocketbook was published: “La figlia di Saadi” Ed. Polaris (co-author M. Mallen), a tour around the world through short stories and photographs dedicated to the female universe.
I exhibited my photos in solo shows in Italy and in collective shows in Spain and in USA, (upcoming in Japan).
Solo Exhibitions : Antropie, Fragments of life – Dominae, faces, gestures, expressions seen through women, in Italy – Collective Exhibitions (Humanitarian issues) in USA – Collective Exhibition in Spain, (upcoming in Japan).
After being away from photography world for a while, I started to share my photographs just three years ago.
