Verona, Province of Verona, Italy
Award winning Documentary & Fine Art Photographer | Art Director & Graphic Designer - based in Italy.
Available to travel worldwide at short notice. Vaccines, medical insurance and liability insurance.
Attended Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London), Westminster University (Foundation Studies Diploma in Art and Design, London) and Graduated in Graphic Design from Kingston University (BA Hons – London, UK) in 1998. Spent the following 18 years switching between various forms of design and photography while working on different assignments/projects and collaborating with companies and individuals from around the world.
My documentary work focuses mainly on social, anthropological and humanitarian issues. At the same time, I remain very much involved in Fine Art Photography.
I am particularly interested in the development of personal projects that give a real, current and, I hope, true vision of what is unfolding in front of us everyday. My long term project “BEAUTY IN HELL: Beauty over Drama” focuses on finding and documenting the beauty (and not the drama) which, I strongly believe, is always present, even in some of the most difficult realities around the world.
In the last few years my work has received a number of international awards (PX3, Grand Prix de Paris - IPA, International Photography Award, LensCulture - Allard Prize for International Integrity and HIPA finalist among others) and was exhibited in various locations around the world (GHISLA Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Switzerland - Biennale dell'Arte, Venice - Palazzo Cusani, Milan - Espace Beaurepaire, Paris - Arles Photo Festival – Chiang Mai Documentary Arts Festival).

I have collaborated with companies and individuals from all over the world. Usually, I work from my private Studio on the Italian hills near Venice, but I'm more than happy to start projects in other locations.
