THE PARTICIPANTS

I have always felt the need to travel, discover and be inspired by the world’s diversity. Love and emotions are much more true only when shared, so I decided to take pictures during my travels. I immediately felt in love with this art and eventually I made it became my life. My travel & photography projects are part of my journey to see the world in a new and unexpected way and I simply feel happy to share them with you. I'm lucky enough to love what I do, as well as the people and places I photograph. Each person and every place has its own soul and my dream is to save them on a picture that will last forever. 

more are coming soon....
