Descripción del Artista

Since I was a child, encouraged by my grandfather, I have focused my attention on far away countries and their peculiarities, geography, people’s cultural differences and literature. I was blown away by the pictures I would come across on books. While still a child, I started following my father on his many travels across Europe, that’s when I discovered my passion for photography and started taking my first pictures. My first camera was a Nikon F, a gift from my mother. I was born and raised in Rome. Over the years, my passion for travel became a real modus vivendi, hand in hand with my two greatest loves: reading and writing. I couldn’t live without a notebook, my backpack sporting the national flags of all the countries I have visited so far, my camera, and the road: my faithful travel companion. I started traveling in 1997, I moved to New York in 1999 to undertake classes at the International Center of Photography (ICP) where i studied photojournalism. I have visited more than 90 countries, with a particular preference for Asia and South America. I have worked as a freelance photojournalist and writer, following socio-historical and political events and focusing on issues such as gender violence (to which I'm working on since 12 years), war aftermaths, minorities, human rights, migration, the tragic story of landmines (to which I have dedicated years of work) and genocide, which I reported on from eight different countries. I continued studying photography in Rome, and pursued a Master in contemporary journalism. My works have also been exhibited have also been exhibited in USA, England, Russia, Australia, India, Japan, Italy, Spain, Greece, Canada, Georgia, Switzerland and in many important international festivals, earning me several awards in many prestigious competitions. My longterm work 'Ni Una Menos' about the feminicide and the violence against women has been awarded, among others, at the Sony World Photography Award, Luis Valtueña International Humanitarian Photography Award, Days Japan International Photojournalism Award, Gomma Grant, Photon Award, Prix Visa del ANI and Kolga Awards. I was selected as one of the Emerging European Talents by the online magazine LensCulture and was one of the finalists at Portfolio Italia 2014-Fiaf. My stories have been featured in some of the most prominent magazines and newspapers from all over the world and i regularly collaborate with International NGOs and international magazines and newspapers such as Newsweek, Stern Magazin, Der Spiegel, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, CNN, Internazionale, L'Espresso, El pais, El Mundo, Die Zeit, Courrier International, 6Mois, NZZ am Sonntag, Io Donna, Woz, Burn Magazine, il Venerdi, La Repubblica and many others. In 2015 I published my first photographic book ITALIANSKIJ, about the Italian community in Crimea persecuted during the Stalinian Purges. From January 2014 to February 2017 I have collaborated with the agency Echo Photojournalism as one of the Staff photographers. I'm currently freelance and i'm working on violence against women extending my long term project 'Ni una Menos' to the other countries where the situation is alarming. At the same time i'm working on an other long term 'La Linea Invisible' about life in the suburbs of South America through the eyes of the yungsters. One of my favorite writers, Ryszard Kapuscinski said: "Our world, seemingly global, after all, is not that a planet of thousands and thousands of various provinces that never meet. Turn the world means moving from one province to another, each of which is a lone star that shines on their own. For most of the people who live there, the real world ends up on the doorstep, the edge of the village, at most, on the border of the valley. The world beyond is unreal, insignificant and even useless, and what they have on hand and under the eyes rises to the size of a large casino obscuring everything else. Often the inhabitants of a place and those who come from far away have difficulty finding a common language, as each of them looks the place from a different perspective: Those coming from outside using a wide angle, which reduces the image but broadens the horizon ... While the person's place has always used the Tele, if not the telescope, which magnifies the smallest details".
