Me­mo­ries of glan­ces… of peop­le

What I al­ways like to pre­sent in my pic­tures is peop­le in their en­vi­ron­ment, whe­re they work, they stu­dy, they pray. To suc­ceed in that I need to ap­proach with pa­ti­ence and hu­mi­li­ty and try to sta­bi­li­ze a con­tact more fri­end­ly as pos­si­ble to be able to let them feel at ease and take the best ex­pres­si­on as I feel, in any case I try to al­ways re­p­re­sent their di­gni­ty and ne­ver their tra­ge­dies.
