About Me

“The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.”— Elliott Erwitt

I started to fall in love of with photography when I was just 4 years old.
Flash forward to today, I’m still in love with photography, and I’ve been working as a full time photographer for the past twenty years.
My work experience spans from press assignments and reportages to exhibitions and portraits.
When I’m not taking pictures or riding a bike, I am probably teaching or drinking a tea.
Eight years ago I decided to make analog photography a central part of my work, and I often get to shoot portraits or reportage assignments using my medium format camera.

I’ve been living in Paris for the last twelves years and I have been working between France, Italy and USA on specific projects.
My last project The Bronx-La Villette, a collection of portraits from La Villette neighborhood (Paris) and The Bronx neighborhood (NYC), has been displayed in several exhibitions both in Paris and NYC, supported by the Paris city hall and NYC local communities.
My photographs 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.
