After graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Literature from the University La Sapienza, I studied photography at the European Institute of Design in Rome, and soon after, started work with NGOs working in the humanitarian arena.
I have been working for the past 5 years as a photojournalist for major Italian Magazines, the humanitarian aspect is central to my photographic interest and to the emotional pursuit of my work. I cherish the opportunity of sharing crucial moments of daily peacefulness and brushing the personal stories of individuals whose origins are so far apart/distant from my own. In 2008 I took up the role of official photographer for Operation Smile an international charity working in over 35 countries, which conducts hundreds of medical missions in support of the most disadvantaged children around the world.
Then, in 2014 I began a collaboration with the Italian NGO Volontariato Internazionale per lo Sviluppo, which focuses on children’s education programs in Eastern Africa and Latin America.
In my role as official photographer for both organizations in the past 10 years, I have documented over 25 humanitarian missions across Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
In 2014 I moved to Rwanda in occasion of the 20th Anniversary of the Genocide with the NGO Progetto Rwanda Onlus. The main focus was the story of an extraordinary Rwandan woman, a Hutu who had rejected the aberration of the Genocide.
I know how to be extremely respectful in the environments where I work, how to be a good photographer without being invasive or inappropriate, securing that the dignity and the rights of all the individuals captured by my camera remain intact.
I am currently living in Rome
