I'm 33 and I grew up in Rome where I studied clinical and community psychology.

I lived and worked for long term projects in Bolivia, Albania and Turkey, being involved in community-based actions with and for unaccompanied minors, street children, asylum seekers and political refugees.

I'm a self-thaught freelance photographer and documentarist. I'm interested in social issues and borderline stories; since 2011 I've been documenting issues related to migration in Europe and in the Middle East. 

I'm co-working with Cro.M.A. (Cross Media Action), an indipendent audiovisual collective producing webdocs, documentaries and short docs and teaching partecipatory story telling.

Some of my photos are distributed by Redux Pictures and NurPhotos.

I speak Italian, English, Spanish and Albanian. Trying to learn levantine Arabic.

My work has been published on Internazionale, Deutsche Welle, Reuters Foundation, Mediapart, Left, Paris Match, Wall Street Journal, La Repubblica, La Stampa, Il Manifesto.

I'm currently based in Rome.
