I have always been attracted by the relationship between man and environment, with a peculiar regard for all those changes involving past and present. After an academic degree in Philosophy, I started being interested in photography and communication. In 2011 I began a collaboration with Archivio Fotografico Toscano for the enhancement of historical collections and with local newspapers. Soon photography became my focus and my main activity.
I am currently member of SooS Chronicles collective. My images have been published both on Italian and international magazines (Financial Times, Courrier International, Newsweek, Culture Trip, D - La Repubblica, La Stampa, Gente) and have been awarded and exhibited in several photographic festivals worldwide (Premio Marco Pesaresi, RovinjPhotodays, Atkins CIWEM – London, Photo Kathmandu, Athens Photo Festival, Vintage Photo Festival).
Besides my editorial work I regularly collaborate with companies and other clients in photographic campaigns and visual content production.

I teach Documentary Photography at L.A.B.A. – Libera Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy and in 2016 I was among the founders of Sedici, a non-profit organization that promotes visual culture and art.
