He accomplished his widest reportage with a 5-month journey around the Mediterranean Sea trying to imagine what a traveller in the year 0 would see and photograph.

On the mountains of the Moroccan Rif he pictured the rural life of cannabis growers.

In Paris he met the “Atelier du Non-Faire”, a workshop space of applied “art-therapy”, seemingly an anarchist environment within one of the biggest psychiatric asylums located in the suburbs of Paris.

In India he documented the life in Varanasi around the most sacred and yet polluted sacred river of the planet.

In Brazil he photographed a Sem Terra camp near Salvador da Bahia, in Rio de Janeiro he portrayed Bob Nadkarni, an English painter and ex BBC war correspondent, and the Baile Funk scene, illegal parties, supported by drug barons, that take place inside the favelas every weekend gathering thousands of Brazilian young people.

In Venezuela he reached the Amazon Rainforest and documented the Yekuana and Yanomami indigenous tribes.

in Italy he pictured the Italian province and he reported on the nomadic communities situation in Rome.
