Born in Tuscany, Italy in 1968, I studied Philosophy at the University of Florence and got a degree in Aesthetics with an essay on Samuel Beckett. I started taking pictures when I was 10 and was trained in black and white and darkroom process by my father, a serigrapher. My first professional photo assignment was as stage photographer for the Teatro di Politeama di Cascina in 1998. Since then I have been working as stage photographer for Italian and foreigner theatres, still photographer for TV and movie production. Today I mostly shoot commercial photography for advertising, editorial and magazines. I still do all my personal and street photography with film cameras, using from 35mm to 4×5” and pinhole cameras. I am the author of the pictures for two books written by Magdalena Stopa, recently published in Poland: “Chleb po warszawsku” (ed. VEDA), and ”My, rowerzyści z Warszawy” (ed. Stopa Studio). My pictures were published in Polish magazines like Rczeczpospolita, PrzeKroj, Gazeta Wyborcza. Some of my pictures were featured in the exhibition “Eaststreet” in Lublin in 2013 and in its catalogue. My work about flea market in Warsaw was shown at the “So far, so close” exhibition during the 2014 “Cineast” film festival in Luxembourg. I live between Florence, Italy and Warsaw, Poland where in 2008 my daughter was born. Today I have my own studio and darkroom in Warsaw, I am active in traditional silver print process, I teach darkroom techniques and I cooperate with graphics’ studios in Poland.
