People say that an image speaks louder than a thousand words, never less for me photography it’s about founding relations, dialogues between people from different cultures. More than once I felt surprised finding similar behaviours, manners from people that are thousands kilometers away from each other. Same thing happens with photographs I look for the originalities of people who are proud of who they are. People who put all of themselves in little things. I’m amazed at the power that little things have. I’ve tried to find secrets and also dialogue in between these special things among people who don’t know each other and are very far away from each one, but still related. Photography for me it’s about that.
