I was born in Agrigento, Italy, in 1978. After graduating in Natural Sciences and after my studies about evolutionary anthropology, I changed my focus to photography and I become a self-taught photographer. At the beginning, I focused my lens on wildlife photography as hobby; then, almost by chance, I started working as professional photographer and photojournalist. From 2007 to 2010 I worked in Sicily for Ansa and during that period I produced several photographic works about migration phenomenon from Africa across the Canal of Sicily. In 2011, I moved to Milan where I began full-time work as a photojournalist focusing my attention in news, entertainment, business, politics, society and fashion. Currently, I am working as a freelance photojournalist for Reuters, Ansa and Agf agencies.
