Gritty Kid

  • Photographer
    Giovanni Sonsini

This gritty little boy is a student of a boxing school in Havana and, when he saw himself framed by my camera, he immediately put himself in a fighting pose with a grim expression. Boxing is a sport very popular in Cuba even by women.

I have a degree in mechanical engineering. My passion for photography began at my ninth birthday when I received as gift from my grandmother a beautiful Kodak Retinette. Since then I have continued to take pictures although the hard engagement of the studies had a negative impact on my photographic works as well as many very challenging work periods. In the last ten years I started to take pictures with some more dedication. I often participate with great satisfaction to some trips organized by the Nikon School Travel.
