I’m a professional photographer graduated in architecture at Milan Polytechnic and with a master’s degree in urban culture “Metropolis” at the UPC Barcelona. I worked as an architect since 2003 and from 2005 to 2009 I was involved as curator in the exhibition “Post-it City, occasional urbanites” presented at CCCB in Barcelona and in other international venues. Meanwhile I was unconsciously photographing mostly buildings during my architecture trips.
In 2008, I quit my job and I decided to follow my passions, photography, architecture and travel, very common passions indeed… the result of this decision are the architectural and landscape photography that you are visiting in this website.
My photography is completely immersed by architecture, geometry, landscape and the human traces I found during my travels for work or leisure.
