I graduated from a Technical Commercial high school in Rome in 2002.
I have been involved in street theatre and experimental work by following the guidance of Lisa Ferlazzo Natoli. She has been an important figure in my development. With her guidance I had the opportunity to experiment with the theatre’s details, short backstages, and a reportage about her completed works.
In 2003 I joined the ISF-CI (Istituto superiore di fotografia e comunicazione integrata), where I took workshops with photographers as Antoine D’agata, Patrick Zachmann, and Letizia Battaglia. I graduated in 2006. In 2007 I spent a long time in London, where I made the project about Naomi’s life.
Once back in Italy, I did an internship in the 10b Photography studio of Francesco Zizola and Claudio Palmisano, assisting with different work in the studio. I graduated in 2010 at the International Center of Photography in the Photojournalism and Documentary program.
My personal work as been published on The Big Issue, Foto8.com, Burnmagazine.org, Repubblica.it, and Time.com.
I have been Interviewed by LensBlog run by The New York Times, about my work in Cairo.
