Bio

Born in 1986 in Sicily.

At the age of 2 I moved to Tuscany with my family where I grew up. After I found my father old Minolta XG-s reflex, I started a B/W analog photography course. First I was recording the reality around me and after I used the photographic medium to explore my inner reality. 

I work mainly with Photography and Text, mixing analog and digital images. I explore themes related to the Self, Identity and Family Relationship. I am interested in self-portraiture and particularly through the performative act I investigate the ambiguity related to one's individuality.

Being passionate about analog and early photography process, often I experiment with Cyanotype, Lomography and expired films.

I graduated in 2014 from an MA Photography at London College of Communication and I have exhibited my works internationally in Italy, Lithuania, London and Shangai.
