Born and currently based in Naples, Italy. Thanks to a scholarship I studied one year in Paris at the “Université Paris VII – Denis Diderot“. 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 analysed the different slant between newspapers Le Monde and Corriere della Sera. In 2010 I started studying on the MA Photojournalism programme at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Napoli where I got my degree with honours.
Some of my work have been exhibited in the PAN-Palazzo Arti Napoli (Italy), Castel dell’ Ovo (Naples, Italy), Biennal of Bibbiena (Italy), Palm Spring Photo Festival (California), Tel Aviv Photo Fair (Israel).
I regularly publishing in the National and International magazines, including Corriere della Sera, Famiglia Cristiana, Il Venerdì di Repubblica, Internazionale, The Guardian, Newsweek, Time, Rolling Stone, New York Daily News.
My researches have been set in Italy, Romania, Tunisia, Egypt, Poland, Ukraine, Greece, Hungary, Serbia, Croatia, France and Estonia telling stories related to current issues.
I am available to work worldwide.
