I’m starting to edit my project Materia, putting together all the materials I shoot in the last years about the making of the future. The “production” of the future and the role that technological progress plays in it confronting many of today’s pressing issues, are the central topics in my work. We’re trying to survive in this planet and this is an incredible time of transition. #materia #tecnology #future #sustainable #wind #energy #climatechange #trees #windturbine

Photo @lucalocatelliphoto, on assignment for @natgeo in London. The Skygarden is one of the 'posh' spots where to get a drink while admiring the skyline of London. Britain's green culture extends to even these new luxury developments.

The Exotic Brutalism of the Barbican Conservatory a garden in the heart of London. Built to repopulate the post-war City of London, the Barbican Estate has become the poster girl for 1960s architectural idealism. On assignment for @natgeo in London for the next 3 weeks.

Very cool campaign @wetransfer presenting the Union of Concerned Photographers. I'm a proud member of the starting team of this new campaign using the power of imagery to underline the urgency of environmental concerns. My project, MATERIA is featured along with other incredible projects. Amazing idea, and great teamwork by Monica Allende and Lucy Pike.
Submit your work and get involved in the campaign too.

It was amazing to pay a visit to @cern robotics team. This is TIM the robot patrolling the 27-km tunnel of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) accelerator. TIM is a mini vehicle transporting a set of instruments along tracks suspended from the tunnel’s ceiling. This smart machine is used for real-time monitoring while the LHC is operating, humans can’t operate for the high radiation levels on the site. #cern #future #materia #science #robot

CERN, Switzerland. Today I’m coming back to one of my favorite places on earth, where thousands of scientists from all over the world are searching the basic rules of the Universe. I’ll keep posting from here in the next days. #cern #universe #science #materia #experiment

I’m happy to share that I won the 1st Place in the Landscape category with ‘White Gold’ at World Photography Organization @worldphotoorg
Rarely has a material so inclined to stay put been wrenched so insistently out of place and carried so far from its source. In Italy’s most marble-rich area, known as the Apuan Alps, the abundance is surreal. Hundreds of quarries have operated there since the days of ancient Rome and Michelangelo sculpted most of his statues from this stone. Now the trade is booming due to the demand from Saudi Arabia and other gulf states. The photographs of this area's majestic quarries reveal an isolated world; beautiful, bizarre and severe. It is a self-contained universe of white; simultaneously industrial and natural. #anthropocene #quarries #marble #landscape #rocks #carrara

The labs at the Wageningen University, the most advanced agriculture university in the world in the Netherlands. Here, the labs are greenhouses where students from all over the world are studying how to solve problems back in their country.

A nice time lapse of the the 3 telescopes I shoot for @natgeo in the south of Spain which are surveying the sky from asteroids every night. #stars #asteroid #timelapse #future #earth #sky #deimos #satellites #telescope #night

For @natgeo I’ve been to the south of Spain to meet Joelia and Jaime, asteroids hunter. Here is how they survey the sky every night.
These 3 Telescopes, in the south of Spain, work alone in the mountain under a non-stoping stop moving and shooting loop commanded from 40 kilometers away, a stressing and intense robotic mode of operation. 
They collect around 50.000 images of the sky every night.
Those images contain stars and also distant galaxies and nebulas, but much closer asteroids and satellites too.
The story ‘They Are Watching You’ — is now online: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2018/02/surveillance-watching-you/ #future #asteroid #telescope #survey #earth #timelapse #night #stars #deimos

Jaime is an asteroid hunter in south of Spain. With his team there, he discovered more than 3000 numbered asteroids of our Solar System, several of them belonging to this near to Earth dangerous family. Among those, 2012 DA14, named "Duende", the closest to Earth flyby of an asteroid with potential threat by its size registered so far. ‘We are watching you is out’ on @natgeo this month. #future #asteroid #meteorites #
