For many years, he has studied the phenomenon of immigration in Italy, following particularly the Indian community in Rome and focusing on racism and violence. Since 2008, he has documented the consequences of migration on the world of childhood, with particular attention to the situation of Eastern European children. He is convinced that children are the first victims of mass migration.
Attracted by personal stories, before photographing, he will get to know the subject, meet him/her several times. He does not carry his camera as a shield, but a companion notebook and his pictures not only recount the humanity of others but also his own emotions.
He has founded an association for the promotion of documentary and social photojournalism called IPPA (International Press Photo Association).
