I was born in 1980, Turin, Italy and I live and work mainly in New York, Turin and Bologna.
I have a degree in Philosophy produced a thesis on the relation between Time and
Photography (worked on with the famous Italian critic and photography historian Claudio Marra).

I began taking photographs after receiving a camera from my grandfather who bought it on the occasion of my birth. He was a photographer, but unfortunately he died few months later.
I still use this camera for the most important artworks I make.

It quickly became a passion and now I work as an artist, a still photographer for movies and
a professional photographer in general. I also teach photography in courses and workshops.

As an artist I've exhibited my work in more than 40 solo and group shows around the world.
I have been published on many reviews and newspapers. I have been published the book
about people with mental desease "Nonostante la vostra cortese ospitalità. Fotografia e
disagio mentale oggi", editrice Quinlan.

As a still photographer I worked in about 15 movies, working with most of the famous italian actors and directors, such as Isabella Rossellini, Giancarlo Giannini, Giuliano Montaldo,
Saverio Costanzo, Pierfrancesco Favino, Alba Rohrwacher, Francesco Scianna, Margherita Buy,
Carolina Crescentini, Fabio Volo, Luciana Littizzetto, Ficarra & Picone, Anita Caprioli, Giuseppe
Battiston.

As a teacher I taught in many courses and workshop, in photographic and art schools. I developed a workshop with mentally ill people.

I am represented by the Claudio Bottello Contemporary Gallery, located in Turin, Italy.
