I am a photo-based artist born in Milan, Italy and immigrated with my family to Vancouver as a child. Working at the intersections of documentary and social practice, I am often compelled to address pressing social, economic and political realities, locally and globally. The investigation of forms of social gathering, resistance and mobilization as modes of public display and empowerment are of particular interest. The creation of a historical record and archive is a strong component of my work. Themes that often emerge in my work are cultural identity, displacement, integration and spiritual renewal.
