For over ten years, I have been travelling around the world with my camera shooting people and places. In the process of total immersion in the culture of every region or country I discover, I try to portray the Human in my photographic works, through photographs which tend to open a dialogue, arouse emotions and questions.

I have assembled here a collection of pictures that I took here and there of people at their home, their place, their surroundings, as they came to me, when I went to them, to meet them. Each picture is a witness of the "face to face" that happened between this person, me, and the eye of my camera. Enjoy the ballad and share the beauty of our world and its people!

“Everybody has a home team: it’s the people you call when you get a flat tire or when something terrible happens. It’s the people who, near or far, know everything that’s wrong with you and love you anyways. These are the ones who tell you their secrets, who get themselves a glass of water without asking when they’re at your house. These are the people who cry when you cry. These are your people, your middle-of-the-night, no-matter-what people,” - Shauna Niequist.
