Aldo’s sophisticated eye for minimal landscapes and his almost flemish-peinture approach to portraiture make an unexpected contrast with the committed themes he chooses to represent. From the exploration of the link between media and war in Gaza strip (Plunged into Cast Lead and A Scorching Summer) to the most recent The struggling Life of Gay Community in Uganda, his ability to establish a deep relationship with his subjects has granted him many awards. His pictures have been exhibited in Italy and abroad, including the recent XV Biennale de la Mediterranée,Thessaloniki, Greece. Aldo currently lives in Milan.
Since 2013, he is represented by Echo Photo Agency.
