As an icon of the Italian and international photography world, he received the Oscar for photography “La Kore – Oscar della Moda” in 2002.

After 40 years devoted to his photographic research, he was honored with a major retrospective, curated by Germano Celant at the Palazzo della Ragione in Milan in 2016. The exhibition at Galerie Clairefontaine entitled “Divine Ladies”, presents a selection of portraits and fashion pictures, which are a hymn to femininity, style, elegance, and to a world made of subtle seduction, sensitivity and hidden fragility, – his main sources of inspiration.
