The gift

Take photos is a gift. It offers a portion of one's time to the subject of our photograph. And who will then watch it.

The gift

This post is also available in: Italiano

The more I travel the world, the more I feel that Home is not a place, but a concept, a breath. It is the point to return to when I am gone, even if it is only a corner in my head, a wish. And it is for this part of a life dedicated to living another, not my own, that these stories have the value of a gift.

A simple concept that encapsulates all the complexity of a profession that should not be taken lightly. Where one part of the flowing time gets caught in a frame while the other falls – unlived – into the past.
