As a child I started falling in love of photography when I was just 4 years old.
Flash forward to today, I’m still loving photography, which 20 years ago became my full-time job.
My work experience spans from press assignments and reportages to exhibitions and portraits.
When I’m not taking pictures, I’m surely teaching photography or riding my bike or cooking with my wife and children.
Eight years ago I decided to make analog photography a central part of my job and I often get assignments for portraits or reportage with my medium format camera.
I’ve been living in Paris in the last twelves years and I work between France, Italy and USA on social projects.
My last project The Bronx-La Villette, a collection of portraits from La Villette neighborhood (Paris) and The Bronx neighbourhood (NYC), has been displayed in several exhibitions both in Paris and NYC, supported by the Paris city hall and NYC local communities.
My photos have been published on international newspapers and magazines since 2002.

To me the extraordinary power of photography is that it fixes an instant for eternity and that moment, immortalized on film, will thus become the memory of something that one day may no longer exist.
