I entered an old and decaying gym in Mumbai, where few young
athletes were sleeping like children on the floor. The trainer woke
them up and soon they began to warm up and to work out. They
practice mud wrestling, called Kushti, an old indian discipline. I
took some creative pictures to them while training.

I'm a hair stylist, I run a salon near Milan in Italy. I love to travel and to take photos. Since 2004 I travel all around the world. My last experience were among Korowai tribe in Papua, and among kyrgyz nomads in Afghanistan. This year I developed the Skin Project, a storytelling of the Skin in India, among Acid Attacked women, albino people, and families hit by so called second poisoning of Bhopal.
