The winter life of Phuktal monastery, one of the most important and ancient monasteries of Ladakh. Fifty miles on a frozen river amongst the Himalayan peaks.
I was born in Rome in 1990 and now I am based in Venice. I started taking pictures when I was 19, initially only analog and since 2014 also digital. In 2016, after finishing my master in philosophical aesthetics, photography became my profession. I published reportage on the New Delhi landfill and on 2016 Kashmir unrest, and I worked on a long project on Himalayan winter. My photographic and anthropological research focuses on border areas. My purpose is to witness the life of communities at the periphery of the world, those neglected or forgotten places which reality is not easy to imagine. I try to make it visible.
