I’m an Italian-born visual storyteller in activity since 1986. Before to embrace photography I worked as a marine illustrator and graphic designer for many international maritime museums and magazines.
As photographer my career started in 1992 and spans from journalism to corporate, editorial, and advertising, with images published and used in all fields, from social reportages to film, television, marine sports, and high fashion.
In 2009 I decided to turn my back on the overcrowded world of mainstream media for focusing on what really touches my heart. Despite the downsides and the (huge!) financial loss, I never regretted that decision.
Since then, my work is mostly people-centered, with a focus on long-term, in-depth, collaborative portraiture projects that memorialize and celebrate the superstars of the everyday: the underserved, the socially ignored, the culturally overlooked, those who struggle to defend their and others’ human dignity, the most powerful instrument with which to progress both on an individual and on a collective level.
Among others, my client list includes: Ricordi, Prada, Simrad, Medusa Films, Cooperazione Italiana Internazionale, Gucci, Unipol Group, Dannemann, Dolce & Gabbana, African Union, Navimeteo, Mondadori, Ethiopian Airlines, Norwegian National Museum, Leo Burnett, Migrazioni, Government of Ethiopia, Deutsche Bank, Gruppo Ugo Mursia Editore, Lufthansa, Condé Nast Group, Christiania Bank / Nordea, Unione Europea, Norwegian National Museum, Greenpeace, United Nation, Unesco and two Royal Houses (England and Norway).
My work is supported by a group of talented individuals coming from different countries and made up of photojournalists, writers, designers, artists, researchers, and explorers of all kinds.
