About Me

Something about me, Paolo.


I was born in Bologna in June 1983 and I had a common childhood as many other children. My relationship with photography and as Photographer enhanced slowly, step by step. When photography from being a passion became my raison d’ être, I decided to turn my hobby into my job.

I have deepened my knowledge of production methods and communication techniques through different masters in photography at John Kaverdash Academy (Visual communication, Reportage, Fashion, Darkroom ans as wedding ). Finally in 2007 I took the first steps as a professional photographer and  I started to collaborating with a photojournalist agency in Milan as photographer and as internship.

As a professional photographer I traveled through Japan, America, Australia, Greece and India. In fact I went to Allahabad for documentary the holy celebration Maha Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, India. In 2013 I followed as volunteer and photographer Time4Life association in Kilis city close to the border with Syria, for brought some helps. As a photographer I spent last two years to documented the Syrian situation in Chios and Athene where covered the disembark of Afghan, Syrian and Iraqi refugees arrived in Chios island.

My photographer that inspired me is.

There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.
