He got significant placements in international contests, such as the Leica Talent and Urban, and his work has been published in various magazines.

He was just awareded with an Honorable mention @ IPA (International Photography Awards) 2013.

Description of the project:
“The confession of a shark” is a project born because of my insatiable appetite for photography, even when I’m on vacation. In fact it was developed during the summer 2013, between the seas of Italy and Greece. The objectives were twofold: to be able to use a “street photography” approach, so candid, unposed and unstaged, in water – therefore in more complicated conditions than on the street – and to demonstrate that the important thing is not the quality of the camera, but who is behind it. I bought an underwater digital camera HP C150W, with whom I developed the entire project. It tells the story of a picky shark undecided about who to point, but finally… The images can also be taken individually and digested without the need of bicarbonate, but just looking at all twenty frames that make up this project, in their sequence, you can grasp the whole and its history. I also made a paperback book through Blurb.com, because in an age where everything is digital I wish people could take advantage and enjoy these images with an added sense: touch.
