“These images are stories of my experiences. Sometimes I run, sometimes I travel on the roof of a train, I sleep in the waterlogged soil, nado, spent long periods in the slums, but mostly I know the souls. I become one of them for a while. These adventurers lie down in the bed of danger. But when you get to these people and you walk through its doors, when you accept me as a friend, all the hard work and the risks are worth. I keep walking, touching each face through my lens. I show the world these unknown stories of suffering. If at least one hand came to give shelter, that would be the great honor of my effort”.
