Attended Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London,UK), Westminster University (Foundation Studies Diploma in Art and Design, London) and Graduated in Graphic Design from Kingston University (BA Hons – London, UK). Spent the following 18 years switching between various forms of design and photography while working on different assignments/projects and collaborating with companies and individuals from around the world.

My documentary work focuses mainly on social, anthropological and humanitarian issues. At the same time, I remain very much involved in Fine Art Photography and my images present in various public and private collections around the world.
I am particularly interested in the development of personal projects that give a real, current and, I hope, true vision of what is unfolding in front of us everyday. My long term project “BEAUTY IN HELL: Beauty over Drama” focuses on finding and documenting the beauty (and not the drama) which, I believe, is always present, even in some of the most difficult realities around the world.

In the last few years my work has received a number of international awards (PX3, Grand Prix de Paris – LensCulture Portrait Awards – Allard Prize for International Integrity – IPA, International Photography Award and HIPA finalist among others, plus a number of honorable mentions and other recognitions) and was exhibited in various locations around the world (GHISLA Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Switzerland – Biennale dell’Arte, Venice – Palazzo Cusani, Milan – Espace Beaurepaire, Paris – Arles Photo Festival – Chiang Mai Documentary Arts Festival).

Usually, I work from my private Studio on the Italian hills near Venice, but I am more than happy to start projects in other locations.
