Unused firecracker from New Year’s Eve.
Proud to have taken part to the new issue of WIRED Italia photographing the mighty Bebe Vio for the cover story. Many, many thanks to David Moretti, Massimo Pitis, Francesca Morosini, Federico Ferrazza as well as assistant Maurizio Polese.
I had the pleasure of photographing Patrizio Bertelli for the cover of WWD — infinite thanks to Ash Mack and Federico Floriani.
The first of a series of stories for ENI – a look inside ECU in Cortemaggiore, Italy. Where workers are trained in gas and oil extraction procedures.
The second of four features on world’s oldest cloth mill Vitale Barberis Canonico is out on the new issue of IL Magazine – this second chapter focuses on macro and micro technology.
I had the infinite honor of photographing a feature about afghan designer Massoud Hassani and the Mine Kafon Project.
Growing up in Afghanistan, Massoud Hassani, founder of Hassani Design BV and Mine Kafon creator, experienced the dangers of landmines first hand. After moving more than 40 times through different countries, Massoud and his family settled down in the Netherlands, where he went on to study Industrial Design at Design Academy Eindhoven.
Inspired by the homemade wind-powered toys he made during his childhood in Afghanistan, Massoud created the Mine Kafon wind-powered landmine detector for his 2011 graduation project. The project rapidly gained interest in the media and in 2012, Massoud and his brother Mahmud organised a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the development of the Mine Kafon as a prominent piece of landmine clearing technology.
Having undergone extensive prototyping and field testing with the support of the Dutch Ministry of Defence, Hassani Design BV’s multidisciplinary team, are now working to optimise the Mine Kafon to safely and efficiently operate across all landmine contaminated terrains.
Special thanks to the whole Mine kaftan Foundation team, David Moretti, Francesca Morosini, Massimo Pitis @ Pitis & Associati for involving me in this project and Teo Zanin for the always invaluable help.
