According to one Spanish saying: "If you cross a Galician on the stairs, you can't tell if they´re going up or down"
I love these cheerful, curious people, who agree to pose. With delight.
So, between reality and fiction, I photograph the inward journey, I’m witness to my experience, following the thread of my inspiration, where play and mise en scène bring us together, beyond our own cultures, for a moment of shared happiness.
At each reunion, I am welcomed by these words: “still alive! “
These photographs are the illustration of the humor, the enthusiasm, and the modernity of an unknown people. Forgotten, threatened, but alive.

With every photo taken by my SLR I check ISO, Aperture and shutter speed. It is so finely controlled that rarely do happy accidents happen. In fact the only thing out of your control is the noise that appears in low ISO settings. Putting back some of the accidental I used an application to loose some control over my photos.
