My name is Antonino, ( - ) I was born in 1973 in the southern Italian town of Catanzaro, a place near the sea and the mountain with a lot of bad humanity in the middle. I started in photography when I was 7 years old with a my father's old camera. I am a professional since 1996 when my passion switched to a work in 2 local newspapers, covering murders and mafia kidnappings. In 2000 I attended a photojournalism school and I started my freelance carreer. I have been stringer for AP and in 2005 for Reuters. I was editor and photojournalist in a co-founded agency OTNPhotos, since 2011, nowaday I work as a freelance covering news and documentary.
