I was born in Milan: city where I grown up, and where I lived before moving in Paris in 2015. In Milan I’ve also started my experience with photography, thanks to my uncle, that at that time (2001) owned a little photo shop, I felt in love with black&white, dark room, developing and printing.

After such beautiful experience I decided to turn (as everyone around me did at that time) to the digital photography, and from 2005 to 2012 I worked in the News as a freelance photojournalist for Italians newspapers and magazines: Io Donna, Vanity Fair, Internazionale, Studio, IL, Herst, Vice.

In 2009 I founded the photo collective Micro and together (as collective) we gave birth in 2010 to the project Voices From Italy and after in 2011 to the online magazine: Voices Mag. From 2010 I decided to leave the News and start working mainly on long-term projects and personal researches: experimenting and mixing different languages such as photography, audio, video.

After a short but very interesting experience as photographer and video maker for the NGO Islamic Relief, in 2012 I finally decided to return to “print & paper”.  So in June 2012 I founded the little independent publishing house: Rumore Nero. From 2012 I gradually came back to film photography and I also started to include in my researches different media and different materials such as: objects, found photos, drawings, illustrations, archival researches and scans.

In 2014 I started the long-term documentary project (still ongoing) about nature and wildlife in Italy: Of Hunting and Nature, working as photographer, illustrator (watercolors) and as a naturalist.

I’m currently based in Paris.
