Andan was born in 1982 in Mantua, a small UNESCO town in northern Italy.
The passion for photography started when he was a child watching, fascinated, the grandfather working in the "magic room" (the dark room).
Autodidact, he has entered in the photography's world in 2012 with his first camera, a gift for his 30th birthday. His formation from that moment passes by the study of the photographs of the great authors. He was hex by the works of one of the most important italian photographer: Mario Giacomelli.
