I started to take pictures in the seventies when I graduated in mathematics. For a long period I worked as researcher in the telecommunication sector.
I have lived in many cities in several countries (Mexico, Algeria, USA, France, China and Belgium). When I was in China (1995-1998) I decided to dedicate my career exclusively to photography. At that time, I worked on various projects related to China that resulted in exhibitions and publications on Italian and foreign magazines.
I exhibited in Italy, USA, Russia, Poland, Guatemala, Spain, France, China, Mozambique, Belgium and Portugal.
My photographs are included in the collections of the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome, the House of Photography in Moscow, the MAXXI National Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome, the Centre of Documentation and Training Ricardo Rangel of Maputo, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Basso Foundation in Milan, as well as in private collections.
I develop my work following two distinct directions: one is traveling in sensitive areas with the clear intention of telling stories, and creates reportage using the traditional analogues techniques, and the other I question the relationship between photography and reality creating digital format, of medium size, where images are cut, processed and reassembled; thus I try to create a new reality, sometime plausible, sometime surreal.
