Born in Cagliari, Italy, I began my career in portraiture and fashion photography. I spent a year working in Oxford before taking to Jakarta, Indonesia, where I spent two months shooting for top Femina Group magazines and participating in Jakarta Fashion Week as an official event photographer. Taking countless photographs of the streets of Jakarta, I soon realised that by creating images – whether for street, portrait, or fashion photography – I was communicating a visual map of the landscape of the human soul. Now, by living and working in London, I have returned to a familiar place, not as a visitor but as a resident with a traveller’s eye. Photographers such as Peter Lindbergh, Irving Penn, and Steven Meisel inspire my everyday work.
