“Intimate Room” è un servizio sulle stanze private dei detenuti in Romania utilizzate per gli incontri matrimoniali dentro il carcere, concessione che hanno ricevuto solo da dopo l’ingresso in Europa del loro Stato.

Once Romania joined the European Union in 2007, the whole prison system went through major revamp and the biggest reform was to introduce the right to private visits. This means that a prisoner who is married or in a relationship has the right to receive, every three months, a two-hour private visit which takes place in a separate room inside the prison compound. Plus, if a prisoner gets married in detention he or she can spend 48 hours with the spouse in the special room and is allowed visits once a month in the first year of marriage. I started photographing the private rooms in 2008 and I have now photographed the private rooms inside all Romanian penitentiaries (35 penitentiaries).

“Las Valkyrias de Bolivia” è un documento sulle usanze, sulla vita e, di rimpetto, anche sullo sport delle donne boliviane.

When I was working in the San Pedro prison in La Paz I met a woman living inside the jail and leaving only during the weekend for a fight. That made me curious to follow this woman in her world of the Bolivian female lucha libre.

“Aerial Views Adria” sono immagini aeree che mostrano la costa adriatica che si snoda tra Ravenna e Rimini.

The colourful umbrellas create amazing geometric patterns which contrast dramatically with the golden sand and azure-coloured sea. From the air it is possible to see how almost every inch of sand is used on a busy summer's day on the Adriatic coastline.
