I was born 1975 in Milan, Italy. After taking a degree in developmental psychology at the University of Padova, Italy, I moved to Berlin, where 2003 I started to commute my passion for photography in my main task, beginning to work as a freelance photographer for different press agencies in the capital. 2005 I decided to consolidate my knowledge in photography and I started to study at the Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie, where I graduated 2008 under the direction of Prof. Ute Mahler with the work 9:30 (book and exhibition). Since 2010 I am a freelance collaborator for the national newspaper TAZ – die Tageszeitung. 2012 I founded with two fellow colleagues the photographic agency Agentur StandArt.
