I was born in Italy where I got my degree in Conservation of Cultural Heritage at the University of Bologna with a specialization in contemporary art and cinema. I worked as an assistant director and event organizer for a contemporary art museum in Bologna for almost 6 years. After a while I realized I was not seeking out my path, so, in 2013, I decided to quit my job and open my self up to more diverse inspirations and experiences. I moved to Amsterdam where I started to pursue my career as a photographer. My projects have appeared on European and American publication and I have exhibited in private and public spaces in Europe and in California. I have recently been selected as New Dutch Photography Talent of 2019 by New Photo/GUP Magazine. I currently share my time between Bologna, Amsterdam and Los Angeles.

My work - both images and videos - comes from my personal life and history which I use to discuss and investigate subjects I believe are meaningful. I am interested in psychologic and mental issues, in the constant and complex tension between fear and desire, in how our past and memories create sometimes subtle yet settled structures in our present. I am visually and conceptually fascinated by the power and delicacy of ordinary things that I perceive as allegories. Nature is a frequent subject of mine as it is an indispensable force that helps me to reconcile my difficulties and be at peace. Photography is for me a way to express my inner story while also a means of self discovery and self awareness.
