I am an Italian American photojournalist and multimedia artist based between Central Africa and the South Pacific. 

Since 2012 I have been living in various West and Central African countries, working freelance for International Organisations and NGOs such as UNICEF, United Nations Development
Programme, the World Food Programme, the European Commission, the International Committee of
the Red Cross, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Plan International and the World Wide Fund for

My work has been published in key media outlets such as The Telegraph, The Guardian, Rollingstone magazine, Le Monde, Libération, El Pais, La Repubblica.

My work focuses on the story of mothers, fathers and children affected by political, social or humanitarian crises. Using emotion as a powerful tool to advocate for their rights, I believe that the story in the picture is what matters the most; what can make a lasting impression, and become a powerful tool for change.
