Photographer based in Munich.

Documentary. Portrait. Lifestyle.

Authenticity and minimalism.

Previous stops: London, Berlin, Normandy.

Second home: South Tyrol.

Born on the longest and brightest day of the year, the midwife looked at my baby hands, turned to my mom and said „she´ll be a piano player“. Then shortly paused and added „or a thief“. I decided to press some camera buttons with those long fingers.

Lucky enough to call Jürgen Schadeberg my mentor.

I don´t believe in specialisation. I believe creativity flourishes when the mind is being exposed to new challenges.

Co-founder of Classroom Concert and Sofar Sounds Munich.

Growing up above the theatre hall in a little village in North Italy, I played hide-and-seek behind the stage where mountains of chairs were stored. I learned to ride my bike on the dance floor where villagers shook their asses on weekends and absorbed music and theatre performances with sparkling eyes and a stuffed animal in my hand when waking up in the middle of the night and looking for her parents who ran the place.

The stage was my playground.
Backstage was home.
