I was born in Rome, Italy, in 1961. I worked in Radio, Theatre, and Television in Italy and in New York. In 2002 I began working on documentaries on poverty, development, and the raising clash between societies, cultures, and religions. In 2003 I moved to Nairobi, where I founded Canvas Africa Productions, a company focusing on social issues through documentaries and photography projects for UN Agencies and NGOs. Through photography, I learned to look more deeply into human experiences, lives, and feelings. My work was exhibited in Kenya, in Nigeria, at the Lagos Photo Festival, and in Italy at the Biennale di Venezia. I have been published by the New York Times Lens and some of my work has been bought by Alidem, a photography gallery in Milan (www.alidem.com).
In 2014 I settled back in Rome, where I work as a professional photographer. I am now organizing an international photography art exhibition focusing on Europe.
