Born in 1959 in Zaire, at the age of twenty years I started working as a photographer of architecture, then explored other specialties, focusing for many years on still-life and the production of surreal images. For a long time I've worked exclusively for advertising, cultivating various passions: literature, music, painting, film, graphics.
My collaborations are mainly required by customers of the great italian economy centers, but I work in my city with a network of partners in different fields such calligraphy, copy-writing, photography, music, food, public relations, graphic and industrial design, outsider-art.
By the years the love for glossy images tempered to become a keen interest in humanity and his cultures, explored and told in the form of series and portraits. This has resulted in interesting hybridations with other disciplines - such as calligraphy, sound and music, video, dance, writing - that gave birth to collective works and installations.
Hyperactive investigator, I devote great efforts to research through projects that have earned me exhibitions, publications and awards in Italy and worldwide.
As an advertising photographer I have worked for large part of the most important italian companies; as a cultural activist I currently organize events, shows; as a teacher I currently collaborate with schools and institutions devoted to social promotion; as an author I’ve shown my work in Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Slovakia, Poland, England, Ireland, Portugal, Greece, USA, China, Nigeria, Senegal.
Italian photographer Marco Ambrosi teamed up with American calligrapher Monica Dengo to create a meditative series that explores written language and human identity.
