I was born in Rome where I studied community and transcultural psychology.
I worked as a social worker 1 year in a daily center for street kids in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, and 2 years in a project of international cooperation for development in an outskirt of Tirana, Albania.
Then I came back to Rome where I worked in a daily center for asylum seekers and refugees for 4 years.
I'm a self-thaught freelance photographer and documentarist. I'm interested in social issues and borderline stories; in the last years I focused my lens on social movements, housing right and issues related to migrations.
I'm co-working with Cro.M.A. (Cross Media Action), an indipendent audiovisual collective. With Croma we produce webdocs, multimedia projects, interactive websites. One of them, 4Stelle Hotel, won the DIG Award for the Crossmedia Reporting in 2015.

My photos are distributed by Redux Pictures, Nur Photo, Corbis and Getty Images.
I speak Italian, English, Spanish and Albanian. Trying to learn Arabic and Turkish.
I'm currently based in Izmir, Turkey. +905068503585
