London, United Kingdom
Italian photojournalist living in London, UK, and dedicated to expose peculiar issues of human-made injustice, focusing mainly on children: their living conditions, health and rights.
He believes documentary photography to be an essential channel for audiences to learn with immediacy, and subconsciously empathise with other people facing realities far away from their surroundings and personal experiences.
Alex strives to produce intimate, touching images aimed at sensitizing viewers in engaging and proactive ways, hoping to assume the role of a catalyst towards a slow change in people's behaviour and policy-making.
In May 2011, ‘The Photographers Giving Back Awards’ - in Sweden - assigned Alex a unique grant to draft and implement a plan benefiting one of his subjects in Bhopal, India, and her entire family: soon after, he started a long-term project of change through photography and social media, 'Poonam’s Tale of Hope in Bhopal'.
His images have appeared on numerous international publications.
An extensive list of commendations, exhibitions and publications is available at the following web address, which is regularly updated:
