I am an Italian photographer born in 1977 in Bari, Italy and currently based in Lyon, France.

I am driven by passion for documentary and sociology and my photography focuses on storytelling and mostly on people.

I have a background in both political science and multimedia communication and I spent the last 15 years photographing for myself and building long-term projects, but also working for international organizations, photo agencies and private companies as a photographer and communication specialist.

Among others, I collaborated with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), INTERPOL and with several private companies in the field of corporate communication.

The National Association of Iconographers (ANI) has exhibited my work on child labor in 2011, at the Photojournalism Festival “VISA pour l’image”, held annually in Perpignan.

I am a member photographer of “Leica Fotografie International” and I took part to the Magnum Photo Agency workshops: "The Art of Street Photography" (led by a pool of seven photographers of the agency) and the "Photographic Storytelling" (led by Alec Soth).

My passion for storytelling and for different cultures leads me to be constantly open to current topics, as well as to several ongoing and long-term photo and multimedia projects, possibly to incorporate photography into social and political memory.

As per ongoing projects, I am currently following a Master Class of Photography with Joel Meyerowitz. 

I work in accordance with the International Code of Ethics for Photography and with the Munich Code of Conduct and I believe that one of the greatest challenges is to recognize and respect the boundaries between the importance of historical witness and the respect for human dignity.
