I believe in human dignity and I cannot stand for injustices. That’s why I always feel the need to respect each human being and somehow help each one to raise its self-esteem. To help a portrait for those who are not expecting to be portrayed and to give light to those faces that are far removed is a life mission. This is humanity, above all. Maria do Céu it’s a beautiful woman that represents human dignity. I was able to take her portrait and return a couple of months later to offer a few prints to her family. I’ve received much more than I gave: everybody’s friendship and respect. If we add this to the fact that I’ve seen her portrait published in PhotoVogue Italy, then my mission is accomplished in a much broader sense. Feeling grateful.
