My photographic journey began at age nine when I was given my first camera. This early start blossomed into a passion that followed me through my family's emigration to Italy, where I honed my skills and completed my studies as a graphic designer.

For the past decade, London has been my home, a city where I've had the privilege of collaborating with numerous institutions, capturing the essence of events like London Fashion Week, operas, and sports. My creativity and unique perspective have allowed me to stand out in the vibrant photography community here.

2. The project involves photographing human irises using a specially developed prototype lens

These images I pair with half of the sitter’s portrait, creating unique visual portraits that have become my signature pieces, gaining me recognition globally.

8. World champion athletes from Team GB who are taking part in the games agreed to sit for me dressed in their competition attire and in a studio setting that mimics their training environment. These I will couple with closeup shots of their irises to catch a glimpse of what it takes to be an elite athlete.
