BIO | I am a photographer based in London, England. I was born in Florence in 1991.
I was initially employed with a photojournalism agency, I curated a very rich historical archive of over three million images taken from 1944 to 1980s by the founder Giulio Torrini, who captured half a century of Florence’s history. That is also where I learned the basics of photography. After that, in 2015, I moved to London where I currently live. My work has been exhibited in Miami, London, Milan, Rome and New York. I am a finalist of the 2019 Miami Street Photography Festival and a finalist of the 2020 Italian Street Photo Festival. I give street photography workshops in London and Florence.
