People from Ethiopia

Fascinated by African and Asian cultures, I photograph since 2010 and I travel 2 or 3 times a year. I love to explore and document tribal populations, for their culture, customs and strength in facing the difficulties of life. I like to entertain and live with them even if for a few days.

My passion for tribal people has allowed me to visit several states in India, Asia and Africa to take photo-reportage such as those on the last tattooed women, both Indian and Burmese and ethiopian tribes. Reportage, however, is not the only photographic genre that excites me but I am generally attracted to everything that strikes me from a photographic point of view.
I teach photography and I am the author of two illustrated books.
My photos have been exhibited in various exhibitions receiving prizes and awards.
