This book gathers together four different reportages, four stories of another India, different, unusual, and sometimes far from the collective imagination. The last Head Hunter of Nagaland (a group of warriors who, to increase their own power in the village, used to carry out the ritual decapitation of the enemy); The Malla Yuddha, the ancient indian wrestling in mud; The "Naga Baba" the highest expression of Indian asceticism, and the scourge of opium in the Indian-Myanmar border, where a third of the men of these villages are now addicted and slaves to the opium.

I was born in Rome on 25 June 1983. I started to taking pictures since as a child. Through the years i began to direct my passion toward photo-reportage especially in social, anthropology, and travel photography. i really like to tell with the images the traditional and spiritual aspect of different people and cultures that i meet in journey. I always use the natural light present in the place I exposed my images in in various italian city and abroad I have published my images in several newspaper and magazine in italy, and some images in Photographic Book edited by Graffiti Press Agency.
