About me

I'm an Italian documentary photographer and storyteller based in London focusing on human rights and migration.

I have worked, among other places, in the suburbs of Kuala Lumpur, in Malaysia, where those who have fled conflict and persecution cannot be granted refugee status and are forced to a life in limbo; in the squats in the Balkans where migrant men, women and children get stuck during their journey towards Europe; on the beaches of the Canary Islands, the destination for thousands of people who every year set off in flimsy boats from the coast of West Africa, facing what is probably the most dangerous journey into Europe.

I have been commissioned by several NGOs and my work has been published in a range of print and online magazines and newspapers, such as Al Jazeera English and El Salto. My photography has won the 2021 Portrait of Humanity award and received an honourable mention in Photography 4 Humanity Global Prize 2020, supported by the Human Rights agency of the United Nations, among other recognitions. In 2022 I was shortlisted for the International Women in Photo Association Award and the Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award.
