BIO

Born and currently based in Naples, Italy. I studied at the “Université Paris VII – Denis Diderot” in Paris thanks to a one-year scholarship. In 2007 I started working as a contributor and a photographer for several Italian newspapers. In 2009 I graduated in Sociology at the “Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II” with a dissertation in journalism, in which I analyzed the different slant between two newspapers: Le Monde (Paris) and Corriere della Sera (Milan). In 2010 I started the MA in photojournalism at the “Accademia di Belle Arti di Napoli”, where I got my degree with honors.
Some of my works have been exhibited in the PAN-Palazzo Arti Napoli (Italy), Castel dell’ Ovo (Naples, Italy), FotoLoft gallery (Russia), Biennal of Bibbiena (Italy), Palm Spring Photo Festival (California), Tel Aviv Photo Fair (Israel).
I regularly publish in the National and International magazines, including Corriere della Sera, Internazionale, la Repubblica, The Guardian, Newsweek, Time and others.
My research has been set in Italy, Romania, Tunisia, Egypt, Poland, Ukraine, Greece, Hungary, Serbia, Croatia, France, Estonia, Spain and Malta telling stories related to current issues.
I am available to work worldwide.
