Can you describe in no more than 30 words who you are and what you do?
Hello! I’m an Italian-Moroccan photographer , I was born and grew up on the south banks of the Garda Lake. I studied at the Italian Institute of Photography in Milan, and now I’m concentrating on documentary photography.

What inspires you most?
To travel and meet new people, but also a creative environment like the one at Fabrica helps a lot in activating one’s brain!

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Never give up, look forward, be positive and do your best!

What do you miss of your home and what do you like of Italy?
Though Italy is my home country, I had never been in Treviso. I have to say I like it a lot, especially because, despite being in a city, I feel like living in a small village.
