THE ROAD WE ARE (2018)


THE ROAD WE ARE

There are moments in our lives when we look back and reflect on what lies ahead...

The ROAD WE ARE is a project that grew organically, slowly but with clarity.

The almost simultaneous concept ideas and the photographic realization took me by surprise, as process of self-discovery.

I had never really spoke with M. before this project.

His homeless appearance, but full of dignity attracted me to him. His kind personality and everyday struggle keep him out of the streets.

In some moments of our lives we can take directions that later in life we may deeply regret.

In this project this person could be any one of us.

And with M. other rich latent aspects of his person can be perceived as we immerse ourselves in each different photo.
