I am a professional photo reporter who, in 1994, has professionally grown in a historic shop of an important photographer in Verona, Maurizio Brenzoni
I learned how to develop negatives in big and medium format and, after that, to print photographs in the dark room. All my work have been used for the superintendence of cultural heritage, for the civic museum of Castel Vecchio, for the modern art gallery of Modena Achille Forti, and as well for the newspaper L’Arena.
Since 2007 my professional career continued to grow with the first reportages published in magazines such as:
D La Repubblica
Musica di Repubblica
In 2011 i won with my personal project “13 Coins” the 1° prize for the best reportage book in Europe in 2010, recognized by FEP (Federation European Photographer).
The project lasted 6 years, I traveled through Greenland, Malawi, Uganda, Mali, Burkina Faso, Belarus, Philippines, Amazonia, Brasil, Thailand and Italy, and it has been fully realized in analogue small format.
It has been exhibited at the International Center of Photography Scavi Scaligeri of Verona and at Pesaro Photo Festival of 2011.
In 2015 I partecipated in the “7Mila_Miglia_Lontano” project, a relay race world tour where 7 professional teams have reported the world street food.
Between 2018 and 2019 I won 2 International Awards for the best direction of photography in the short film “In the House of Mantegna”, one at the Phoenix Film Festival and the other in 2019 at the Toronto Film Festival.
I collaborated with other short films as Photograph Director that have been received more than 120 mentions and special reports in the most important video dance festivals.
Among others, the video “Snags in Palladio” is in permanent exhibitions at the Los Angeles Torrent Museum.
In 2019 I founded the “iPicky Academy”, a training center for travelers who have a passion for photograph.
Also, thanks to my degree in master of art and to my 9 years teaching experience at the International Center of Photography in Verona, I started a fundamental training starting from the history of art.
On this background i built my personal teaching method of photography language.
