Turin, Metropolitan City of Turin, Italy
I am a freelance photographer, specialized in reportage, portraits and urban landscape.
My first professional interest was photojournalism, further developed through journalistic in-depths. I worked on topics such as immigration, contemporary housing issues and solutions, Italian and foreign politics, and other socially and culturally relevant news.
My second interest is for portraits. I firstly approached the genre when working on a project about urban suburbs. I then collaborated with several magazines and I continue my research through personal projects. Portraits are for me an investigation on the physical and psychological components of persons in-and-out of context.
Urban landscapes are the third component of my work. I focus on describing constructions and transformations of the environment by the human hand.
Alongside my personal research, I work on commercial photography of events, meetings and conferences.
Beyond these categories, I'm developing the idea of a polyhedric photography that follows the complexity of the medium. From this follows a form of research through projects, understood as sum of different images linked through a narrative continuity.
I currently collaborate with SharingIdea, Buenavista Photo and Spazi Inclusi, collective and multidisciplinary experiences between journalism, graphics and communication. I regularly contribute to the magazine Platinum, published by Il Sole 24 Ore.

Torsion (looking at gay pride)
This is not a photographic project about gay pride, but about how people look at it. The gay pride is an event in which the LGBT rights are claimed through an incisive and provocative form. Unlike almost all other forms of civil protests, the visual component of the event has a priority on those same claims. The visual component transmits the content. This makes the photographic representation of the gay pride predictable, spontaneously persuading amateurs and professionals to wield their cameras and those taking part to not miss a moment. I thought to focus on the immediate consequences of this motion on the viewers who attend the event. The objective is to analyze the meeting between the event and the reactions of people who are involved in this event. My goal became to look at those who are looking at the Gay Pride, who willingly, or not, were there.
