I started shooting and developing photos while studying architecture in Naples, Italy. After graduating, I attended a photography class and participated to two collective exhibitions. From 1999 to 2007 I lived in NYC working as an architect. Back in Naples, in 2015 I approached Street Photography and in 2017 I bought my first professional digital camera and started to attend several photography workshops (Vineet & Rohit Vohra from APF Magazine, Nikos Economopoulos from Magnum Photos, Francesco Cito, Salvatore Matarazzo from Full Frontal Flash). Since 2019 I have been partecipating in various Street Photography group exhibitions and my work has been published both online and in print.
I am part of the "Women in Street" community (currently guest curator), founded and curated by Julia Coddington, Casey Meshbesher and Rebecca Wilthsire, and I am a member of the international street photography collective "Through The Lands", which aims to connect 15 photographers from all over the world to show their unique P.O.V. of the countries they visit (www.throughthelands.com).
