Picture by Anna Adamo

 

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 am a documentary photographer and medical student currently writing a thesis on the development of social cognition during adolescence. 
My projects are focused on youth related issues and on my family archive. I'm mostly shooting in my homeland Sicily. I'm keen on film cameras and book binding.
In my home-studio I work on the editing of my projects on big metal walls and I bind the dummies and limited editions of my books.... most of the time with my cats Zira and Milo.
