I’m an Italian street photographer born and raised in Padua.

After a Master Degree in pre and proto-historical Archaeology at the University of Padua in 2012 I decided to change my path coming to London to grow my skills in the field of photography. In 2014 I completed the Ma Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at London College of Communication.

As my background is strictly related to the documentation of the past, today I dig between the layers of my community to describe humanity and its behaviours. An anthropological research recorded through a lens that would like to offer a fair visual representation of the stories I have the pleasure to witness to.

While working in editorial and commercial photography I've focused my personal photographic research in the documentation of the daily life of Hackney and particularly of Broadway Market and London Fields where I’ve been living in the last three years.

My work has been published on printed and online publications such as The Financial Time Magazine,The Guardian, International Gallerie, Rolling Stone, La Repubblica, Il Corriere della Sera, La Gazzetta dello Sport.
