Picture by Arianna Arcara

ABOUT
I was born in Catania Sicily, Italy in 1986. I've always been divided between art and science as one of my parents is a doctor and the other a painter.
I got into photography during high school when I used to photograph my friends on their skateboards. Later on I started photographing adolescents more specifically with a focus on life in the suburbs. Recently I graduated from med school with a thesis about the development of the brain during adolescence.
Besides my personal work I take care of my grandfather Claudio archive.

My work is represented by Micamera
