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 like to travel and encounter the world with its streets and its people, but the part that corresponds to my interest, my vision and philosophy of life. My photos are a look at someone's world, a journey into their space and their life; an attempt to build a story without affection, , as part of a social commitment.
My images aim to reunite us with the common man, using a simple visual grammar that reveals the value of the everyday hidden life. Images that are the time of the people and the people in their time.
