I am a documentary photographer of Italian origin born in Belgium.
Based in Montréal, this is where I produce the majority of my work.
As far as I can remember, I have always been a very visual person. Sensitive to people and their stories, I am fascinated by human beings.
As a child, if I could have chosen a super power it would have been to experience life through someone else’s perception. Today I am a photographer, and as before I enjoy imagining people’s lives but this time via my camera.
Strongly inspired by my own background and experiences, my photography tells stories about the interactions human beings have with each other and their environment. Existence and human condition occupy a central position in my work.
