I am a freelance photographer, specialized in reportage, portraits and urban landscape.
After completing my BA in Philosophy with a dissertation in aesthetics (topic: the photography of Cindy Sherman), I moved to Milan where I studied photojournalism at the J.Kaverdash academy and photoediting at the CPE Bauer. Later I attended the first year of the master of fine arts in Contemporary Imagery at the Fondazione Fotografia Modena.
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 people 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.
