Kampong Luong Village, Cambodia. At the ceremony for drowned spirits, families place lotus flowers and paper boats in the water as offerings to the dead.
Floating villages spread across the surface of the Mekong River’s waterways, playing host to ethnic Vietnamese whose status in Cambodian society is perpetually adrift.
In fact, the villages are improvised ghettoes to which the country’s largest minority has been unwillingly confined.
“The Floating World” is my latest work for The New York Times Magazine. Check it out on the NYTmag website.

I’m happy to join the photographers' team of the Sony Ambassador program.
To celebrate the news I’m sharing this pictures from my work “Sulfur Road”. Mount Ijen, on the Island of Java, Indonesia, hosts one of the last remaining active sulfur mines in the world.
This has been a tough one in very harsh conditions, the Sony 7RIII has been essential to getting the shoot.
Stay tuned for my next projects.
Thanks #SonyAlpha for this opportunity.

A picture from “The Floating World” my latest assignment for The New Times Magazine. Village of Chhnok Trou, a child floating on a “plastic bottle boat”.
For the tourists who drive large parts of the country’s economy, Cambodia’s floating villages—where tens of thousands of ethnic Vietnamese live on rafts and houseboats—are a fantasy come to life. Tour guides describe the villages as curious products of an indigenous lifestyle.

Kampong Luong Village, Cambodia. A portrait of Nguyen Ti Chan, a widow who lives with her child in the poorest neighborhood in Kampong Luong.
The vast majority of Cambodia’s ethnic Vietnamese are undocumented, with no recourse to institutions that would allow them medical care, education, or - most crucially -the right to own or live on land.

The Atacama Desert in northern Chile is the driest non-polar desert on Earth. The Mano de Desierto is a large-scale sculpture of a hand located on the Panamerican Highway. The sculpture was constructed by the Chilean sculptor Mario Irarrázabal at an altitude of 1,100 meters above sea level. Its exaggerated size is said to emphasize human vulnerability and helplessness.
This is a picture from the series “In Her Orbit” shot for the New York Times Magazine and in print this week on D la Repubblica.
For this assignment, I’ve been in Chile following of the legendary Nathalie Cabrol and her team at the SETI Institute. Cabrol is an explorer, an astrobiologist and a planetary geologist specializing in Mars.

A solitary fisherman at Papuma Bay. Papuma is a scenic beach on East Java, Indonesia, is quite popular among the people of Java for the white sands and the big rocks. Besides its natural scenic beauty, Papuma is also rich of exotic animals.
Indonesia is situated on the Ring of Fire—a 25,000-mile seismically active belt of volcanoes and tectonic plate boundaries that frame the Pacific basin. About five million Indonesians live and work near active volcanoes, where farming soil is most fertile. Java alone is home to 141 million people—one of the most densely populated islands on Earth.
“Sulfur Road” my latest assignment for National Geographic is on line, check it on NatGeo website.
