I was born in Reggio Emilia, Italy, in 1977.
Since 2005 I decided to commit myself to documentary photography, especially concerning women condition. From 2006 to 2008 I attended Reflexions Masterclass, held by the photographer Giorgia Fiorio and the curator Gabriel Bauret. At that time I started working also on two personal research projects : In Between, a selfportraits series, exposed at Paris Photo in 2008, and Aftermath, an ongoing project on the theme of the loss of innocence.
My work Odd Days, a long term project on eating disorders was awarded with 3rd prize portrait single picture at World Press Photo 2008, and with PhotoEspana-Ojodepez humanitarian award in 2009.
In 2009 I was selected for the 16th Joop Swart Masterclass.
I live in Rome and I’m represented by Contrasto.
