“Plants are amazingly good in solving their problems.”

Computer Vision researcher and photographer from Italy.

I love the world of illustration and I often collaborate with artists.
In my shots I try to abstract reality by offering a personal interpretation of it. My images have received mentions and awards in important international competitions and have been published in italian and international magazines and websites such as: Artribune, Corriere della Sera, Domus, La Stampa, Repubblica, NBA Official Magazine, StreetArtNews, Fubiz, Designboom,, Journal Du Design, Icon Design, China Design Trend,, Conde Nast Traveller China.
