I’m a photographer specialized in narrating the built environment and landscape, I studied architecture at Milan Polytechnic, ETSAS Sevilla and UPC Barcelona (MArch). After the graduation I worked as an architect and I was involved as curator in the exhibition “Post-it City, occasional urbanites” presented at CCCB in Barcelona and in other international venues. Meanwhile I was unconsciously photographing buildings during my architecture trips.
In 2008, I quit my job and I decided to follow my passions, photography, architecture and travel, very common passions indeed… the result of this decision are the architectural and landscape photography that you are visiting in this website.
I work on commission for architecture offices, companies and institutions and I’m always seeking for new collaborations for book projects, exhibitions and researches. I also develop personal projects focused on architectural and landscape photography; the last is on colonial architecture of the Roças of São Tome and Principe.
My photo essays regularly appear on architecture, design and lifestyle magazines such Wallpaper, Abitare, Mark, Architectural Record, C3, …, and have been presented in books by Phaidon, Taschen, Actar and newspapers like Corriere della Sera, El Pais, La Vanguardia, …
