LIVING IN REFUGEE CAMPS People in refugee camps who are often spectral identities who live without dialogue, without answers to their questions, and without future. Their realities are not ephemeral, but only detached from our lives.The camps in the lands of nobody subsist with actions that are untiringly repeated, creating a constant that we do not perceive. These Camps have populations of the size of intermediate cities of the world.Pictures of people that are forced to look for spaces in other paths and light in other ways and by doing so leave behind other lives and other dreams.

I am an architect, with a master in sociology and PhD in urban geography. I studied photography nearly 40 years ago. Currently, I am preparing a book of photography entitled “The Streets of the World’s Cities in Images” with short narratives accompanying the photos. Some of my pictures have been published in UN books and reports and I have received several Awards.
