I’m inspired by people. Tell me your story.
I grew up in Rome, Italy, and got a bachelor degree in Philosophy in Pisa and Paris. Then I went to study screenwriting in Florence and decided to take the route of photojournalism. My interest in history and anthropology took me to South East Asia for the best part of seven years, which culminated with Amnesty International Italy publishing my pictures of the Burmese civil war. To sponsor my work in Asia, during the monsoon season I would travel back to Europe to work as a tour guide all over the continent. My vision and work have been influenced by all the people I came in contact with and by the aesthetic of all the countries I was lucky to live and work in.
Then, almost all of a sudden, I relocated to Chicago and I started documenting weddings. Much has changed from the time I was shooting BW film and spending hours in the darkroom. But something stayed the same: my passion for portraits and for writing stories through images. Even now that I work primarily with digital, I always stop and think before pressing the shutter. Because I look for images that can tell your story. If you are looking for a Chicago wedding photographer and you are looking for an authentic approach, I would like to get in touch with you.
