About the Artist:

Born in Rome in 1977. After a 5 years degree course in Communication and Media, I moved to London in 2003 to gain a better understanding of the European photographic arena. Since July 2005 I have been a regular freelancer with The Guardian, loving this job more and more, and working within a very stimulating and exciting environment. In the last few years I have completed different projects in advertising, corporate and artistic imagery and my photos have been published in several worldwide magazines and newspapers, including The Independent magazine, the Irish Times magazine, the Financial Time magazine, The Guardian Weekend, The Observer, The New York Times, USA Today, BBC and Rolling Stone Magazine. I do also often collaborate with Italian magazines and I've been regularly commissioned by client including Myself-CondeNast, Style-Corriere delle Sera, D di Donna - Repubblica, L'Internazionale, Gazzetta-Sport week magazine, Gioia, Bell'Italia, Bell'Europa and more. I’ve also enjoyed collaborating with charities including MSF (Doctors without borders), Amnesty International, Corams Family, Corams Fields, Age Concern and more. In addition, thanks to my interest and background in Media and Advertising, I’ve been commission by multinational companies and different brands to help redevelop their visual identities.
