This project aims at describing the urban landscape and the everyday life flowing on the sides of a long and deep stripe of blue, the Chao Phraya river, that divides Bangkok in two halves. In this landscape research project, the Chao Phraya has been considered as a sort of narrative thread, a metaphor of life, giving life to interactions and allowing biodiversity to develop. This fluid connects people living all around and populates the microworld built on its shores. From the almost completely unspoiled nature of Bang Kachao to the magnificence of the ancient temples of Wat Pho, it takes along on a journey at the discovery of the other beauties hidden on the sides of this blue artery of Bangkok.
Born in Taranto (south Italy) in 1994. He approached to photography in 2016 after an unexpected discovery of some dusted cameras from an old trunk of his father. From that moment, he decided to devote himself entirely to the study of the photographic image; in the same year he started a Bachelor degree in photography at European Institute of Design in Rome (IED Rome), graduating with honors in July 2019. This course gave him the opportunity to deepen his knowledge regarding the analysis and the production of the photographic image and the privilege of taking part at several masterclasses and workshops in Italy and Europe.
Currently MA student in advanced photography and publishing at ISIA in Urbino (Italy).
