Country: United Kingdom 🇬🇧

I'm an Italian London based photographer focusing on long-term projects, covering social, humanitarian and environmental issues in Europe and West Africa. I graduated in Science of Communication in Florence and I discovered my passion for photojournalism during a trip to Palestine. I covered the refugee crisis in Sicily (Italy) and Calais (France) in 2015 and 2016; the political protests in London; the Russian Revolution celebrations for the 100th anniversary, between St. Petersburg and Moscow in 2017. I am currently working on an ongoing long term project in London “It was meant to be”, a transgender's transition from man to woman and in May 2019 I started a new project about knife crime (London). Since November 2018 I have been focusing on environmental issues and e-waste, with the project “Burning Dreams” (Ghana).
I was NikonNOOR Academy participant in Vienna (October 2019) and I am part of the WPPh 6x6 Global Talent Program Europe 2019.
