After more than 30 years of working for national and international organizations, including the United Nations, we are now free to pursue our twin passions of photography and travel. During our professional careers we lived and worked throughout the world in developing and developed countries. Now marching to our own beat, we have the time to more fully explore the depth and breadth of Planet Earth, often off-the-beaten track.

Through our photography we want to share our experiences and impressions with you, in the hopes that it will stimulate your curiosity and imagination. "Allegria" in Italian means "High Spirits." Come with us as we embark on new adventures or revisit favorites, following  the sound of laughter or silence.

Our photographs have been published in a number of different magazines and books as well as on calendars and the web. Please contact us at if you would like to purchase an image. Our images may also be purchased through ImageBrief (
