Documentary photographer born in Italy in 1980.
He started to take pictures for the first time at the beginning of 2008 after he had obtained a degree in Philosophy at the University of Florence.
During the last month of 2008, documenting the student protests that were taking place in Italy against the new educational reform, he started to collaborate with the Milan based agency Fotogramma.
Become a freelance in 2009, he began to focus his attention on contemporary social issues. Interested in the people who live far from their country of origin and in all the dynamics connected to the necessity of integration with the new country, to the desire of preserving home countries’ culture and traditions, to the will of maintaining old relationships juxtaposed to the creation of new ones, he started a long-term project about immigration
“Struggle for a normal life”, the first ongoing chapter of this project, documented the life of Somali refugees in Italy and Europe. A new long term chapter of the project, started in 2014, will document the lives of Chinese people in Italy.
His work has been published in The Cut/New York Magazine, Vanity Fair (Italy), His Life (China), La Repubblica, Corriere della Sera, La Stampa, Il Fatto Quotidiano, Gioia, L’oeil de la Photographie , Gente di Fotografia among others. He has exhibited in group and single shows in Italy and Europe.
Based in Italy.
